8 major newspapers join legal backlash against OpenAI, Microsoft


Eight major daily newspapers, including the Chicago Tribune and the New York Daily News, sued OpenAI and Microsoft on Tuesday, joining the backlash to artificial-intelligence companies that have used copyrighted work to train their algorithms without compensating content owners.

The group includes South Florida’s Sun Sentinel, the Denver Post, Orange County (Calif.) Register, San Jose Mercury News, Orlando Sentinel and St. Paul Pioneer Press. The lawsuit alleges that OpenAI and Microsoft used their news articles to train and run their AI tools, including OpenAI’s ChatGPT. All eight publications are owned by Alden Global Capital, a New York City-based investment fund.
