The day after The New York Times sued OpenAI for copyright infringement, the author and systems architect Daniel Jeffries wrote an essay-length tweet arguing that the Times “Has a near zero probability of winning” its lawsuit. “Copyright law is about preventing people from producing exact copies or near exact copies of content and posting it for commercial gain. Period. Anyone who tells you otherwise is lying or simply does not understand how copyright works.” We expect OpenAI to argue that the Google ruling allows OpenAI to use copyrighted documents to train its generative models.
