Getty Images has barred the sale of AI-generated artwork on its site. Getty is concerned about potential copyright disputes, CEO Craig Peters told The Verge.
- An “extremely limited” amount of AI-generated art has appeared on Getty’s photo distribution platform, Peters said, though The Verge was able to find some AI-made images at the moment.
- Getty is working with the Coalition for Content Provenance and Authenticity to develop filters for AI art.
- Peters said “real concerns” exist regarding the copyright of the models’ outputs. The models were trained on millions of images, including copyrighted photos, scraped from the web.
- Photo distribution sites Newgrounds, PurplePort, and FurAffinity, have also banned AI-created content. Getty rival Shutterstock is also removing much of the AI artwork.
Stock photo and illustration site Getty Images has banned AI-generated content. The site says it wants to protect customers from possible legal challenges, as AI art models are frequently trained on copyrighted data.
