The court documents filed by the Author’s Guild said the AI algorithms are the heart of OpenAI's “massive commercial enterprise” and are “systematic theft on a mass scale.”

against the Microsoft-backed OpenAI on Sept. 19 due to its alleged misuse of copyrighted material in the training of its artificial intelligence models.

It goes on to argue that works were copied wholesale and without permission or “consideration” by feeding them into large language models . The Author’s Guild said it represents a class of professional fiction writers whose “works spring from their own minds and their creative literary expression.” It says, therefore, that since their livelihoods derive from these creative works, the LLMs “endanger” the ability of fiction writers to make a living.

“What Defendants could not do was evade the Copyright Act altogether to power their lucrative commercial endeavor, taking whatever datasets of relatively recent books they could get their hands on without authorization.”
