The estate of George Carlin settled with Dudesy after they posted an AI-generated comedy special titled 'George Carlin: I’m Glad I’m Dead; in January.

On Tuesday, lawyers for the Carlin family shared that the podcast’s creators had pulled the computer-made special

Will Sasso and Chad Kultgen, who host the Dudesy podcast and YouTube show, were named as defendants. 20 John Does were also named, with five listed as creators of the AI program and 15 as individuals or entities who “contributed to the creation, production and sponsorship” of the AI-generated special.

“The world has begun to appreciate the power and potential dangers inherent in AI tools, which can mimic voices, generate fake photographs, and alter video,” the attorney added. “This is not a problem that will go away by itself. It must be confronted with swift, forceful action in the courts, and the AI software companies whose technology is being weaponized must also bear some measure of accountability.
