Alerts Insight, Week of 3/25: How Will Human Author Rights Be Protected in the New World of AI-Generated Content?

In our latest Alerts Insight post, we share an alert our system generated last week that would be relevant to anyone watching the AI, search and IP sectors.

This alert was on Google: on March 20 at 7:43 AM EDT, we learned from MT Newswires that Google accepted a €250M fine levied by l’Autorité de la Concurrence, the French competition regulator, for failing to properly compensate the authors of content used in its Gemini AI chatbot (originally known as Bard).

This is one of the results of a fight by European agencies against US search and AI companies which are leveraging human content without proper recognition of the authors of that content.

The March 13th deal between OpenAI and the French newspaper Le Monde that gave OpenAI access to the content of Le Monde is another proof point that the attitude of the AI giants towards the IP rights of journalists and authors is changing:

At Causality Link, we have always licensed the newspaper content we use for our commercial product, enabling our customers to trace back all our data to its original source for explainability and credibility, and paying the respect they deserve to the human authors of our texts.
