Getty Images bans upload of AI-generated content

James Vincent, writing for The Verge:

Getty Images has banned the upload and sale of illustrations generated using AI art tools like DALL-E, Midjourney, and Stable Diffusion. It’s the latest and largest user-generated content platform to introduce such a ban, following similar decisions by sites including NewgroundsPurplePort, and FurAffinity.

Getty Images CEO Craig Peters told The Verge that the ban was prompted by concerns about the legality of AI-generated content and a desire to protect the site’s customers.

Getty Images is being appropriately cautious. AI image synthesis tools, being trained on the open internet, can be easily prompted into copyright violations.
