Pulitzer-winning authors join OpenAI, Microsoft copyright lawsuit

A group of 11 nonfiction authors, including Pulitzer Prize winners Taylor Branch, Stacy Schiff, and Kai Bird, has filed a lawsuit in Manhattan federal court accusing OpenAI and Microsoft of misusing their books to train models behind OpenAI’s ChatGPT and other AI-based software. The authors claim that OpenAI infringed on their copyrights by using their works to train GPT language models. The lawsuit, a proposed class action, is part of a series of legal actions by copyright owners, including authors John Grisham, George R.R. Martin, and Jonathan Franzen, against OpenAI and other tech companies for alleged misuse of their work in AI training. Microsoft, as an investor in OpenAI, is also named as a defendant. The authors seek unspecified monetary damages and an order to stop the companies from infringing on their copyrights. OpenAI and Microsoft have denied the allegations.
