European Parliament agrees on AI Act
The European Parliament in Brussels recently passed the so-called ‘AI Act’ – a law that will regulate (the development of) Artificial Intelligence. This act includes new clauses that create additional obligations for providers of ‘generative AI’ such as ChatGPT, Midjourney and Dall-e, such as in the area of transparency on use of copyrighted material. Additionally, it seems that they will have to prevent AI systems from creating infringing content. A move in the right direction!
After this vote, the AI Act will enter a new legislative phase: the trialogue. Pictoright, together with its European partners and the Federatie Beeldrechten, will continue to do its best for authors in this phase as well.
