The site https://haveibeentrained.com/ searches for photos and illustrations that were used to train AIs. I already found some of my illustrations.

on a tiny test of 7 images, i found 3 hits.  i chose images i thought likely to have been used, no time to test several thousands more

i kept getting
'The top result has 96% similarity with the searched image'

but no images show - does that mean the image was used, but few if any like it?

You realize that by "used to train" they really mean "ripped off"?

not really - no individual image is being copied - millions of images are used in training. the AI starts as a random assortment of pixels and doesn't copy any existing image, just uses them to move towards a unique image. no one has shown that there's a connection between an individual image and the AI result

what would you suggest as a payment for such a usage?

Ok then, I can read a book that you wrote - take detailed notes page by page - then "write" my own book and sell it. Hey, I just used yours to "train" myself.  Or as you put it, to "move towards" my own version. You can't point to any identical sentences so my conscience is clear.

Honestly, I absolutely would not take the developers word for this. Time and again these things turn out to be BS and oversold. I would not be at all surprised to find out there is a lot more copying involved than they will admit. Until it is tried in court and computer scientists get to tare apart their back end we wont know.

Interesting search site, and just a superficial check and found, IS, SS and DT watermarks on many pages.

I am glad that the contribution is interesting. I was just thinking about the possibility that we creators will be entitled to some profit for the use of our work. But I suppose there is a legal loophole about it.

that's not how machine training works, and yours is an example in which lawsuits have been successful against the 'trainer'

machine training uses millions of images and the AI produces its results w/o specifically using any of those images

perhaps, but it would make SS look munificent - you'd be sharing the wealth with millions of other artists

No pretty much every single scene in Tarantino's films comes from a film he saw. He has taken hundreds of those influences and made something completely different (which is exactly what AI is doing). And he hasn't bought the rights to any of the films he's borrowing from but if you read his interviews, he's acknowledged quite openly where he's taken some of his moments from.

Really? Several? Name a couple, and the source material, I'd be interested.

That's not unusual as for years the movie and TV industry has been doing "inspired" scenes by using bits of previous works. The film Noir, some of the methods and blocking, are identical to older films. Those old films, sequences were copied from other old films. People like Lucas and Spielberg are known for filmmaking craft. They use classic scenes, remade and woven in to fit their movies.

This is interesting for people asking about the legal aspects:  https://techcrunch.com/2022/07/22/commercial-image-generating-ai-raises-all-sorts-of-thorny-legal-issues/

"...there isnt a direct legal precedent in the U.S. that upholds publicly available training data as fair use." There's already a case in the system arguing that rights are being infringed upon. If the case ends up being, the scraping the web for PD sites and who knows where else is not fair use, then the AI creators will have to license the data they use. How much would those initial 5 million images cost?

Oh a couple of IS and SS subscriptions and we get our 2 cents and the system puts us out of business, with our own images.

agreed, like many filmmakers do -it's called homage. but that's not the discussion  - the reference was to taking one book and making a movie from it

We're all being conned by this "AI" bullsh!t, there's no "intelligence" behind this,  and "train" is market-speak.  What's really going on is a new form of copying - one that's untraceable and unproveable - with multiple images used to create a mashup that's then refined by clever algorithms and filters.   If you want an analogy, think of "sampling" in the music business - and the lawsuits it's generated.

The real "training" going on is tuning this software to produce stuff that people like - and will pay for.

Yes, I'm ranting.  I'm a former software engineer and all this bogus hype is ticking me off.  Let's quit repeating marketing bullet points and defending this stuff.  The people behind it know exactly what they're doing, and just hope to make a ton of money before copyright law catches up with them - if it ever does.

machine learning & AI training are real, not buzzwords and are completely different from sampling -

there is NO evidence that DALL-E is either sampling or copying actual images or 'mashing up'.  i have provided an example in which the result had no direct connection to actual images

NO ONE, despite their chicken-little dramatics, has shown an example of an AI created image that was copied from an existing image.  if it is "untraceable and unproveable" then you're admitting you have nothing but an opinion with no actual evidence

Great list, some inspired is not copying. Louie Louie, Hang on Sloopy, Call any Vegetable, and many more could all be the same song. But thanks, that was interesting.

n 1973, The Beatles were sued by Big Seven Music Corp which handled Chuck Berrys You Cant Catch Me. They claimed that not only was the beat from Come Together just Berrys song slowed down, the lyrics were also stolen.  For reference, the lyrics in question are John Lennons Here come ol flattop, he come groovin up slowly to Berrys Here come a flattop, he was movin up with me.

Both parties settled out of court, but Lennon wasnt done.  He vowed to record three more songs owned by Big Seven Music Corp.  Big Music responded politely by doing the same thing to John Lennon, releasing a series of unauthorized outtakes designed to embarrass Lennon.  When it was time to take the wreckage to court, both sides lawyered up in what must have been an epic legal showdown.  In the end, it was John Lennon that won, to the tune of 85 grand.


That's what the courts thought.

Hey here's another, a movie, and I liked both of them.

Pee-wee's Big Adventure (1985) / Bicycle Thieves (1948)

Is using an image to train AI infringing? Since that's in the courts now, the answer should be interesting to all of us?

Faces? "IBM allegedly created, collected and stored millions of face templateshighly detailed geometric maps of the facefrom about a million photos that make up the diversity in faces database. Janecyk claimed that IBM obtained the photos from Flickr, a website where users upload their photos. "

The future of this, when it's out of beta testing and to the point where the developers are confident in their ability to produce a useful commercial product is known as pay-per-query.

Hats off to the OP that page is interesting to see what come up for a search. That could be useful in itself for ideas?

Want something more personal and scary?  https://exposing.ai/  I didn't find myself. Not sure if I care? But it was interesting that Flickr and other databases are forming a collection of faces.

I agree but as they even changed the songs after being accused does nothing but proves they inspired themself a bit to much. Copying the exact bassline can not be inspiration :)

And the whole industry is full of examples like that. Bob Dylan career skyrocket after he did what he did with House of the rising sun or Blowing in the wind of which he changed complete verse later if I recall that right. He didn't even credit House of the rising sun and a career of a pure genius started like that.

Hello I love from the Doors is an example of a blatant ripoff and pretty much everyone did it in the music history not only at that or this times. Some things go a bit beyond "inspiration" :)

you're confusing copying with a cover

Sounds like Getty just had a quick meeting with their lawyers and decided this whole thing is one massive copyright lawsuit just waiting to happen.  So they've banned "AI" generated content, at least until things are clarified.

I'm completely not, its pretty clear what is a cover and whats ripping off. Taking a whole verse of lyrics from someone else's song and than removing it completely after a lawsuit threat is not and can not be a cover.

Also taking a whole song and signing your name in the authors field on the album cover can hardly be considered a song cover.
