La corte del distr. Nord della California 30 ottobre 2023, Case 3:23-cv-00201-WHO, Andersen v. Stability AI, DeviantArt, Midjourney, esamina il tema in oggetto (segnalazione e link di Jess Miers su X).
Le domande sono tutte rigettate tranne quelal verso Stability, per la quale è cocnessa facoltà di modifica:
<<3. Direct Infringement Allegations Against Stability Plaintiffs’ primary theory of direct copyright infringement is based on Stability’s creation and use of “Training Images” scraped from the internet into the LAION datasets and then used to train Stable Diffusion. Plaintiffs have adequately alleged direct infringement based on the allegations that Stability “downloaded or otherwise acquired copies of billions of copyrighted images without permission to create Stable Diffusion,” and used those images (called “Training Images”) to train Stable Diffusion and caused those “images to be stored at and incorporated into Stable Diffusion as compressed copies.” Compl. ¶¶ 3-4, 25-26, 57. In its “Preliminary Statement” in support of its motion to dismiss, Stability opposes the truth of plaintiffs’ assertions. See Stability Motion to Dismiss (Dkt. No. 58) at 1. However, even Stability recognizes that determination of the truth of these allegations – whether copying in violation of the Copyright Act occurred in the context of training Stable Diffusion or occurs when Stable Diffusion is run – cannot be resolved at this juncture. Id. Stability does not otherwise oppose the sufficiency of the allegations supporting Anderson’s direct copyright infringement claims with respect to the Training Images>>.
Provvedimento itneressante poer chi si occupa del tema, dato che da noi ancora non se ne son visti.
