Adobe Offers To Cover Legal Charges For Copyright Cases Involving Firefly
By Nicole Rodrigues, 09 Jun 2023
Last month, Adobe introduced its own artificially intelligent art generator called Firefly. What made it stand out among the flurry of other generators popping up all over the internet was that it was trained purely on the Adobe Stock site, openly licensed content, and worked in the public domain, making it safe for commercial use.
When an image is created on Firefly, it will immediately devise a tag, or what Adobe calls a “digital nutrition label,” that contains information such as the date made, tools used, and the name of the image to give users a better idea of what goes on behind the scenes when fabricating such content.
Adobe maintains that its system is so foolproof that should anyone get in trouble for commercially using work generated on it, it will step up and take care of the dispute itself.
This assurance is only eligible for those under the Firefly for Enterprise plan, and includes a flat rate for businesses looking to incorporate the machine into their work.
In an interview with Fast Company, Andres Guadamuz, an intellectual property law researcher from the University of Sussex, deemed the claims as Adobe having thoroughly investigated its training data to the point where it believes it will not get sued for its use.
