Authors sue AI chip giant Nvidia for copyright infringement

Nvidia joins the list of AI giants being sued for possible copyright infringement in AI training. Authors Brian Keene, Abdi Nazemian, and Stewart O’Nan claim that their works were part of a dataset of approximately 196,640 books used to train Nvidia’s NeMo AI framework. Nvidia NeMo allows companies to customize, deploy, and fine-tune pre-trained large models. In a class action lawsuit filed Friday night in San Francisco, the authors are seeking damages for individuals in the U.S. whose copyrighted works were used to train NeMo’s LLMs over the past three years. Several authors have filed lawsuits against AI companies such as Meta, OpenAI and Microsoft, accusing them of copyright infringement. The authors claim that these companies have used their books without permission to train AI models such as GPT-4. Stephen King says it’s cool.
