The lawsuit, initially filed in mid-January, alleged that Stability’s AI model, Stable Diffusion, had scraped billions of copyrighted images without permission, including those created by the AI ART artists, to train the software.

DeviantArt, which incorporated Stable Diffusion on its site, was accused of potentially copying millions of images. However, this is done from there without a license and violating its own terms of service.

Stability AI’s Involvement

Orrick expressed doubt that the AI-generated images infringed upon the artists’ copyrights. As it seemed “not plausible” that they derive from copyright images. He indicate that he would only convince if the class could demonstrate that images closely resemble the artists’ work.
