A U.S. court has partly dismissed a lawsuit against OpenAI, a company known for its AI technology. The lawsuit claimed that OpenAI violated copyright laws by training its AI chatbot using authors’ work. However, the court’s decision doesn’t mean that OpenAI is completely free from scrutiny.

Authors Paul Tremblay, Sarah Silverman, Christopher Golden, and Richard Kadrey filed the lawsuit. They accused OpenAI of different forms of copyright infringement, including distributing works without proper copyright information, and other legal violations like unfair competition and negligence.

But, the court dismissed four out of six claims because the authors didn’t provide enough evidence to support them. The judge, Araceli Martínez-Olguín, pointed out that the authors didn’t show how OpenAI’s AI outputs were similar to their books.

The only remaining claims are direct copyright infringement and unfair business practices. The court stated that if it’s true that OpenAI used copyrighted works for profit, it could be seen as unfair business conduct.

OpenAI, like other companies developing AI, has faced legal challenges regarding its technology. Recently, The New York Times also sued OpenAI and its supporter Microsoft, alleging the unauthorized use of its articles to train AI.
