Generative AI: A Threat to Copyright?
ChatGPT, a generative artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot developed by OpenAI, provides many new opportunities, yet concerns have been raised over copyright issues as it seems unclear who owns the generated content: the users, tech companies or data owners?
ChatGPT generates search results based on the data available on the Internet and the data users input in the conversation. Generative AI uses sources of data to generate responses without the owners’ approval, therefore, potentially causing copyright issues.
At a forum at Sunway Phnom Penh Hotel on Monday, via online presentation, Poren Chiang, a Taiwanese digital law researcher, alerted the public of the threat generative AI poses to copyright law.
