Nvidia is Sued by Authors Over AI use of Copyrighted Works

0 160

Nvidia, renowned for its chips powering artificial intelligence, faces legal action from three authors who claim the company used their copyrighted books without permission to train its NeMo AI platform.

Brian Keene, Abdi Nazemian, and Stewart O’Nan allege that their works were included in a dataset of approximately 196,640 books utilized to train NeMo to replicate ordinary written language. The dataset was subsequently removed in October due to reported copyright infringement.

In a proposed class action filed in San Francisco federal court, the authors assert that Nvidia’s acknowledgment of training NeMo on the dataset constitutes copyright infringement. They seek unspecified damages on behalf of individuals in the United States whose copyrighted works contributed to training NeMo’s large language models over the past three years.

Nvidia’s response to the allegations and the outcome of the legal proceedings will be closely monitored within the tech and intellectual property communities.
