Creatives are suing Nvidia over copyright infringement in AI training

Published

on

Nvidia finds itself embroiled in a legal battle as three authors, Brian Keene, Abdi Nazemian, and Stewart O’Nan, file a lawsuit against the tech giant.

The authors allege that Nvidia unlawfully used their copyrighted works to train its NeMo AI platform without obtaining permission.

The lawsuit, filed in San Francisco federal court on Friday night, claims that Nvidia utilised a dataset comprising approximately 196,640 books, including works authored by Keene, Nazemian, and O’Nan, to train its NeMo AI platform.

This platform was designed to simulate ordinary written language but was taken down in October due to reported copyright infringement.

The authors argue that Nvidia’s takedown of the NeMo AI platform constitutes an admission of their use of the dataset for training purposes, thereby infringing upon their copyrights.

Seeking unspecified damages, the authors are pursuing legal action on behalf of individuals in the United States whose copyrighted works contributed to training NeMo’s large language models over the past three years.

Ghost Walk

Included among the copyrighted works cited in the lawsuit are Keene’s 2008 novel “Ghost Walk,” Nazemian’s 2019 novel “Like a Love Story,” and O’Nan’s 2007 novella “Last Night at the Lobster.”

Nvidia has chosen not to comment on the matter, while legal representatives for the authors have yet to respond to requests for additional comments.
