The new AI-based picture production tools that “search” a variety of image archive websites and internet references to create entirely original graphics based on language prompts have already been tested by you.
Among these new apps, Dalle and Midjourney are quickly gaining popularity since they allow users to create magnificent visual works of art with essentially little effort.
What are your usage rights to the visuals you create, and can marketers actually use these photos in their content without running afoul of copyright issues?
Right now, it appears that you can if you bear a few things in mind.
According to the Dalle agreements, consumers have the right to utilise their inventions for any purpose, including industrialization:
“Subject to your compliance with these terms and our content policy, you might use Generations for any legal purpose, including for commercial use. This means you may sell your rights to the Generations you create, incorporate them into works such as books, websites, presentations and otherwise commercialize them”
Although the majority of stock photo platforms are still debating whether they would really allow such art for sale, you may also sell visuals that you created.
Recently, Getty Images made the decision to prohibit both the upload and the sale of illustrations created using AI art tools. which, based on Getty, results from
“concerns with respect to the copyright of outputs from these models and unaddressed rights issues with respect to the imagery, the image metadata and those individuals contained within the imagery”
But the point of concern here is that visuals which are utilized here as the source of material for these AI generated depictions may not be licensed for commercial use.
But even that is not necessarily a definitive legal barrier.
As explained by the Verge
“software like stable diffusion [another AI art tool] is trained on copyrighted images scraped from the web, including personal art blogs, news sites and stock photos sites like Getty Images. The act of scraping is legal in the US and it seems output of the software is covered by “fair use” doctrine. But fair use provides weaker protection to commercial activity like selling pictures and some artist whose work has been scraped and imitated by companies making AI image generators have called for new laws to regulate this domain.”
Using AI-generated art in your digital marketing sounds like a hazardous business right now, but laws may change in the future. But there’s no denying that AI-generated art has infused newness into content marketing or digital marketing efforts.
