The world of AI generated images and copyright ownership over the images created – is a very interesting world indeed.
OpenAI Dall-E 2 images as the example:
If that feels like the maker of the paintbrush telling Monet what he gets to do with his painting, that’s understandable.
To add insult to injury, OpenAI’s terms go further. Just to make it perfectly clear, you expressly assign any rights you might have in your image (whatever those might be) to OpenAI by contract. As the owner of the image, OpenAI can grant other people the right to reproduce, publish, or sell images that you create with DALL-E 2. You could find yourself in the position of walking into a store and seeing it selling your DALL-E 2 masterpiece on cheap T-shirts, and there would be nothing you could do to stop it.”
