Anthropic Counters Lawsuit Alleging Copyright Infringement Over AI Model ‘Claude’

Anthropic, the developer of the artificial intelligence model Claude, has responded to a lawsuit filed in October by music companies, including Universal Music Group, alleging copyright infringement. In its objection filed on January 16, Anthropic contends that the claims are invalid and that the lawsuit was filed in the wrong court. The music companies accuse Anthropic of illegally using their AI models for training and distributing copyrighted works without permission. Anthropic argues that the claims are an attack on the new category of digital tools and that the plaintiffs misunderstand both the technology and the law. This lawsuit adds to a growing number of legal challenges between AI developers and creative entities over copyright infringement during the training of models. (Source: Cointurk)
