New York Times vs. Open AI: A Copyright Infringement Battle

The New York Times has taken legal action against Open AI, specifically targeting any companies under the Open AI umbrella, including Microsoft, for copyright infringement. The Times is seeking massive sums of money, potentially in the billions, for unauthorized use of their content in AI models like Chad GPT 4 and other tools.

Understanding Copyright Infringement in AI

Copyright infringement in the realm of AI involves using copyrighted material without authorization. The focus is on the output rather than the effort put into creating the work. This legal battle raises questions about the use of AI models trained on copyrighted data and their ability to reproduce content.

Legal Dismissals and Precedents

Past cases of artists and celebrities suing AI models for copyright infringement have often been dismissed in the US justice system. Judges have typically rejected claims that AI systems themselves are infringing derivative works. The emphasis is on the reproduction and commercial use of copyrighted material rather than the tools used to create it.

However, the case with New York Times targeting Open AI may present a different scenario. The Times alleges that Open AI’s tools, including Chad GPT, have reproduced significant portions of their articles without permission, damaging their relationship with readers and impacting their revenue.

The Role of AI Tools in Reproducing Content

The dispute hinges on whether AI models like Chad GPT 4 have copies of copyrighted material stored within them. The Times argues that Open AI’s tools generate verbatim excerpts and summaries of their articles, posing a threat to their journalistic integrity and financial interests.

Evidence and Analysis

The Times provides examples of how Chad GPT reproduces their articles, indicating that the AI tool can output content that closely resembles their original work. The case will likely scrutinize the methods used to extract and reproduce this content, shedding light on how AI models handle copyrighted material.

Furthermore, the format and context of responses from Chad GPT can reveal whether the tool accesses its training data to recreate articles or relies on external sources like web searches. Understanding the mechanisms behind AI-generated content is crucial in determining the outcome of this legal battle.

Implications for AI and Copyright Law

The New York Times vs. Open AI case highlights the complex intersection of AI technology and copyright law. As AI models become more sophisticated in generating content, the need to protect intellectual property and enforce copyright laws becomes increasingly important.

Looking Ahead

As the legal proceedings unfold, the outcome of this case could set a precedent for future disputes involving AI-generated content and copyright infringement. The resolution will have implications for how AI models are trained and used in the future, shaping the relationship between technology, creativity, and intellectual property rights.

Stay tuned for updates on the New York Times’ legal battle with Open AI and the potential impact on the AI and copyright landscape.


  1. >>> I believe we are meant to be like Jesus in our hearts and not in our flesh. But be careful of AI, for it knows only things of the flesh such as our fleshly desires and cannot comprehend things of the Spirit such as true love and eternal joy that comes from obeying God's Word [Galatians 5:16-26]. Man is a spirit and has a soul but lives in a body which is flesh. When you go to bed it is the flesh that sleeps, but your spirit never sleeps and that is why you have dreams, unless you have died in peace physically. More so, true love that endures and last is a thing of the heart. When I say 'heart', I mean 'spirit'. But fake love, pretentious love, love with expectations, love for classic reasons, love for material reasons (love because of material needs) and love for selfish reasons those are things of the flesh. In the beginning God said let us make man in our own image, according to our likeness. Take note, God is Spirit and God is Love. As Love He is the source of it. We also know that God is Omnipotent, for He creates out of nothing and He has no beginning and has no end. That means, our love is but a shadow of God's Love. True love looks around to see who is in need of your help, your smile, your possessions, your money, your strength, your quality time. Love forgives and forgets. Love wants for others what it wants for itself. However, true love works in conjunction with other spiritual forces such as patience and faith – in the finished work of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, rather than in what man has done such as science, technology and organizations which won't last forever. To avoid sin and error which leads to the death of your body and your spirit-soul in hell fire (second death), you must make God's Word the standard for your life, not AI. If not, God will let you face AI on your own (with your own strength) and it will cast the truth down to the ground, it will be the cause of so much destruction like never seen before, it will deceive many and take many captive in order to enslave them into worshipping it and abiding in lawlessness. We can only destroy ourselves but with God all things are possible. God knows us better because He is our Creater and He knows our beginning and our end. The prove texts can be found in the book of John 5:31-44, 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12, Daniel 2, Daniel 7-9, Revelation 13-15, Matthew 24-25 and Luke 21.

    You must read your Bible slowly, attentively and repeatedly, having this in mind that Christianity is not a religion but a Love relationship. It is measured by the love you have for God and the love you have for your neighbor. Matthew 5:13 says, "You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men." Our spirits can only be purified while in the body (while on earth) but after death anything unpurified (unclean) cannot enter Heaven Gates. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God [Matthew 5:8]. No one in his right mind can risk or even bare to put anything rotten into his body nor put the rotten thing closer to the those which are not rotten. Sin makes the heart unclean but you can ask God to forgive you, to save your soul, to cleanse you of your sin, to purify your heart by the blood of His Son, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ which He shed here on earth because Isaiah 53:5 says, "But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed". Meditation in the Word of God is a visit to God because God is in His Word. We know God through His Word because the Word He speaks represent His heart's desires. Meditation is a thing of the heart, not a thing of the mind. Thinking is lower level while meditation is upper level. You think of your problems, your troubles but inorder to meditate, you must let go of your own will, your own desires, your own ways and let the Word you read prevail over thinking process by thinking of it more and more, until the Word gets into your blood and gains supremacy over you. That is when meditation comes – naturally without forcing yourself, turning the Word over and over in your heart. You can be having a conversation with someone while meditating in your heart – saying 'Thank you, Jesus…' over and over in your heart. But it is hard to meditate when you haven't let go of offence and past hurts. Your pain of the past, leave it for God, don't worry yourself, Jesus is alive, you can face tomorrow, He understands what you are passing through today. Begin to meditate on this prayer day and night (in all that you do), "Lord take more of me and give me more of you. Give me more of your holiness, faithfulness, obedience, self-control, purity, humility, love, goodness, kindness, joy, patience, forgiveness, wisdom, understanding, calmness, perseverance… Make me a channel of shinning light where there is darkness, a channel of pardon where there is injury, a channel of love where there is hatred, a channel of humility where there is pride…" The Word of God becomes a part of us by meditation, not by saying words but spirit prayer (prayer from the heart). Take note, God is Spirit and those who worship Him should do so in spirit and truth (genuinely by living the Word). When the Word becomes a part of you, it will by its very nature influence your conduct and behavior. Your bad habits, you will no longer have the urge to do them. You will think differently, dream differently, act differently and talk differently – if something does not qualify for meditation, it does not qualify for conversation.

    Heaven is God's throne and the dwelling place for God's angels and the saints. Hell was meant for the devil (satan) and the fallen angels. Those who torture the souls in hell are demons (unclean spirits). Man's spirit is a free moral agent. You can either yield yourself to God or to the devil because God has given us discretion. If one thinks he possesses only his own spirit, he is lying to himself and he is already in the dark. God is light while the devil is darkness. Light (Holy Spirit) and darkness (evil spirit) cannot stay together in a man's body. God is Love (Love is light) and where there is no love is hell, just as where there is no light is darkness. The one you yield yourself to, you will get his reward. The reward of righteousness to man's spirit is life (abundant life) and the reward of sin to man's spirit is death. Sin and satan are one and the same. Whatever sin can cause, satan also can cause. Sin is what gives the devil dominion or power over man's spirit. When God's Word becomes a part of you, sin power over you is broken, you become the righteousness of God through Christ Jesus. Where Jesus is, you are and when He went (to the Father), you went. In the book of John 8:42-47, Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and came from God; nor have I come of Myself, but He sent Me. Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe Me? He who is of God hears God’s words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God.” My prayer is, "May God bless His Word in the midst of your heart." Glory and honour be to God our Father, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and our Helper the Holy Spirit. Watch and pray!… Thank you for your time and may God bless you as you share this message with others.

  2. Even if the NYT "wins" that law suit, they'll lose. Because there is hardly a way anyone would subscribe to a newspaper that just killed the most helpful tool that has been developed in the last decade.

  3. Chat GPT is just taking the tech free loading to the next step. Tinfoil hat time but there must be a logical limit as AI can automate a lot of work but all the financial benefits will only accrue to the Sam Altmans. Instead of 1000 writers all contributing to economy we put another layer in his bunker complex.🤨

  4. They will win case. Washington presented a bill law project which makes illegal to publish or develop in USA any models without dev reports (yes, at last full control on corpos but open source too) or approval from federal agency, which will be main only country censor. And this bill are based on copyright foundation, but contained many unrelated things destroying Ai industry in USA but bringing it to Asia, i was right. Publishing uncensored non-zombie models in USA will be impossible by such bill.

  5. Came into this channel thinking it'd be unbiased but then you started being pro ChatGPT and I immediately checked your videos. Of course you're an AI shill.

  6. ChatGPT won't even tell me song lyrics, even though I pointed out to I that they are literally a Google search away and you don't have to click on anything to obtain them Google displays the lyrics for you right there. It agrees that modern search engines do have that feature but it says it cannot reproduce verbatim any copyrighted material, and if I want to chat about interpretations of the lyrics and stuff like that I'm more than welcome to do so.

  7. 6:29 I believe you to be correct on that one because chat GPT when working from its own knowledge base never produces a word for word document because everything is predicted and it’s usually different.

    So if the output turns out to be an exact replica of the webpage, and it’s doing a web search on top of that, then there’s only one explanation.

  8. The New York Times were using ChatGPT-3.5 (green icon) which is free
    You were using ChatGPT-4 (purple icon) which is paid.
    You should have analyzed this using ChatGPT3.5.
