Getty Images has banned the download and sale of artwork created using AI art tools such as DALL-E, Midjourney, and Stable Diffusion. From the report: It is the latest and largest user-generated content platform to impose such a ban, following similar decisions by sites including Newgrounds, PurplePort and FurAffinity. Getty Images CEO Craig Peters told The Verge that the ban was prompted by concerns about the legality of AI-generated content and a desire to protect the site’s customers. “There are real copyright issues with the results of these models and unresolved rights issues with the images, the image metadata, and the individuals contained in the images,” Peters said. Given those concerns, he said, the sale of AI works or illustrations could potentially put Getty Images users in legal jeopardy. “We actively work for the benefit of our customers,” he added. One of Getty Images’ biggest competitors, Shutterstock, also appears to be restricting some searches for AI content, but has yet to implement a specific policy banning this material.
