AI Artists: Mastering Stable Diffusion Copyright📜👩🎨
Here’s everything you need to know about Stable Diffusion copyright.
Generative AI is testing the limits of existing copyright law and bringing up a number of new questions.
Who Owns the AI-Generated Artwork?
The legislation is yet to evolve and make their and to make it clear exactly what is the case of who owns the art made in these systems.
So, the first thing to note is that you can absolutely use everything you create in Stable Diffusion for commercial purposes.
Firstly, creating an existing brand or trademark inside of stable diffusion can breach the copyright of those businesses.
You also have to be aware of commercializing work with the likeness of a famous person.
As this can breach the regulations of using that image.
But one thing to bear in mind is that on the stability.ai terms of service, they say by your use of stable diffusion you hereby agree to forfeit all intellectual property rights claims worldwide regardless of legal jurisdiction.
Which says that they are allowing all of the works created by Stable Diffusion to be put into the public domain.
I have a feeling that this is going to be hard to uphold in the future.
And the will of creatives is to be able to own and copyright their works made in Stable Diffusion.
So watch this space.
I will continue to update this section as precedents are set.
