Is this title even grammatically correct?

OK, I just got about 100 AI generated photos accepted in the last few days.  3 of those AI photos have been sold once.  This is cool.  What a cool Adobe Stock and Midjourney!!  Maybe I'll sell all my cameras and lenses soon.

No need to sell your photographic gear just yet, but AI generated images do sell really, really well. At least in my experience.

Maybe AI is bad for camera manufacturers.

Maybe the graphics and photos are beautiful. Apparently Midjourney steals photos and graphics without the authors consent. Probably not an honest company. It is better to use Adobe Ai honestly

Just tried Adobe Firefly, but Midjourney is much better.  Firefly generated images aren't on point and not usable for stock photo yet.

Adobe Ai has content and commercial use rights. Midjourney has more data for content creation but I don't think it has commercial use rights. Even for a fee.

So Adobe are uninformed and misled or they are sufficiently informed and after analysis have decided to accept this AI pictures? To me is the second.

Midjourney gives commercial use rights.
Every of their plans gives you General Commercial usage rights, unless you are part of a company with more than $1,000,000 USD a year in gross revenue. Then you need a "pro" or "mega" plan.

Ok. Where does Midjourney get the data to create the images? Does it have permission from the authors?

Adobe Ai. It has the rights to create the images because it has its library and shares the profits with the authors.

No, they do not have permission,  they just scraped the internet
 But since Adobe trained thair AI also with Midjourney (and DALL-E, and Stable diffusion, etc...) images, they also trained their AI with images they had no permission to use. So, same thing.
Adobe just keeps saying their AI was ethnical and fair - and legally safe. But since they deliberately also used other AI generator's AI images submitted by contributors to their database to train their own AI, they know very well that this is just a ruse. Could have been so easily avoided if they only used real photos to train their AI, but they decided against that.

Well said! I questioned them about this and they circumnavigated it by responding that their AI contributors warrant that they have all copyrights to the images when they submit them. I was very disappointed that they trained their AI on AI.

I wonder how Midjourney got their "Dataset".  Is there any alternative to Midjourney to create AI stock photos?

They scraped the internet.

Laion-5B, a nonprofit, publicly available database that indexes more than five billion images from across the Internet, including the work of many artists.

That's impressive.  Midjourney is much better than Adobe Firefly at least for now.

There must be a collective lawsuit against Midjourney in the future.

After one year of existence and development of Midjourney a lot of discussions about these point, but I think it's not so simple and not so fast, it will take time and a lot of different opinions, as the subject is quite new.

Collective lawsuit, if there should be the conditions, would already started. At the contrary, only few single artists lawsuit has been submitted (for what I know)

So far it's difficult, because artists have a hard time proving that their specific image was used to train Midjourney's AI.

But there is talk about an EU law that will require developers of AI to make all material that was used to train an AI public. It's unclear if this will pass, so far it's just a draft. But if it happens, artists will have a better chance with lawsuits, because then at least they will be able to prove that their images/text/music/voice/etc. was even used.

 not practical for anyone w 100+ imag es on multiple sites, having to do individual searches & recording - all for .00001c per image

Firefly is terrible - but will be better. Adobe is a clever company. Adobe should never have allowed the use of Midjourney, it's unethical.

Not sure what you are talking about. I am talking about potential lawsuits of copyright violations. Winning a lawsuit against a big company for copyright violation should give you way more than .00001c.

Are you saying Adobe's Firefly is ethical? They stole our images and threw some pennies at us.
