ABOUT THE CASE
“AI” image generation products such as, Stable Diffusion, DreamStudio, DreamUp, and Midjourney have become a viral internet sensation. While this new technology is enticing, these products infringe on the rights of thousands of artists and creators. Indeed, their ripple effects are already being felt. Artists have already begun to experience the financial burden these products can have on their livelihoods. Art students are wondering whether they should continue to pursue their passions. While it is common for technology to replace humans, in this instance humans have not been replaced; their contributions are simply hidden, and they are left uncompensated.
We are pursuing a case that will ensure artists’ rights can no longer be ignored by the creators of these products.
