Google has promised to defend users of its generative AI systems on the Google Cloud and Workspace platforms from claims of infringement of proprietary rights. With this action, Google joins other tech behemoths like Adobe and Microsoft in making similar commitments.
A brief about Google will protect its generative AI users from infringements on their intellectual property
Leading IT corporations, notably Google, have made considerable investments in generative AI. The numerous works by authors, illustrators, and other copyright holders are used to train these AI systems. However, this technique has given rise to a number of legal actions, with plaintiffs contending that both the content produced by these systems and the usage of their work for training the AI violates their rights. Users can rest easy after Google’s latest declaration. However, in order to receive Google’s support on copyright issues, a certain requirements must be met.
The business made it clear that this protection would not be applicable if users knowingly produce or utilize created content in violation of the rights of others. Recent increases in generative AI litigation have mostly targeted the businesses that own these systems, such as Google, rather than specific end users.
Google’s spokesman reportedly claimed that the company is the first in the sector to offer a comprehensive indemnity solution that covers both sorts of claims, according to a Reuters article. Its Vertex AI development platform and Duet AI system, which produce text and graphics in Google Workspace and Cloud apps, are covered by this new policy. However, the well-known generative AI chatbot tool Bard from Google was not included in the press statement.
Microsoft, another well-known AI company, had previously given users of its AI technologies a similar level of assurance. The multinational software corporation declared last month that it will cover the legal costs on behalf of users of its AI products. Any content that does not adhere to Microsoft’s “guardrails and content filters” will not be eligible for this safety, much to the requirements put forward by Google.
