Getty Images bans AI-generated images

Getty Images prohibits the upload and sale of images generated by AI tools such as DALL-E, Midjourney and Stable Diffusion. Natural language image generation models such as DALL-E have produced an astonishing array of artistic images over the past few months, and some artists have subsequently uploaded the images to image sales sites for sale. But photo sites Newgrounds, PurplePort and FurAffinity have banned such content due to copyright concerns (AI images are generated on top of existing images). Getty Images is the latest platform to make a similar decision, with CEO Craig Peters saying the move was motivated by concerns over the legality of AI-generated content, as well as to protect its customers, where AI-generated images could bring legal consequences risk. Another platform, Shutterstock, has yet to ban such content, but has restricted searches .
