Google has announced that it will protect users of its generative artificial intelligence (AI) systems on Google Cloud and Workspace platforms if they are accused of copyright infringement. However, Google added that it will not assist those who "intentionally violate the rights of others."

Google has joined Microsoft, Adobe, and other companies in making similar commitments.

Leading tech companies are investing heavily in generative artificial intelligence and are striving to integrate it into their products.

Prominent writers, illustrators, and other copyright owners have claimed in several lawsuits that using their works to train artificial intelligence systems and the content generated by them infringe on their rights.

According to a company representative, "as far as we know, Google was the first in the industry to propose a comprehensive two-way approach to compensation," which covers both types of claims.

According to Google, the new policy applies to software, including the artificial intelligence development platform Vertex and the Duet artificial intelligence system, which generates text and images in Google Workspace and Cloud programs.

The press release does not mention the more well-known generative AI chatbot program, Bard.

The company has also stated that compensation does not apply to cases where users "intentionally create or use generated output data to infringe on the rights of others."

The recent wave of lawsuits regarding generative AI is typically directed against companies that own such systems, including Google, rather than individual end-users.

Defendants in AI-related lawsuits claim that using training data sourced from the internet to train their systems qualifies as fair use under US copyright law
