Court clarifies that AI-generated images have copyright

The Beijing Internet Court recently concluded a case involving disputes between Li and Liu over infringement of authorship rights and information network dissemination rights, clarifying the "work" attributes of images generated using AI and the "creator" identity of the user. This case is also my country’s first copyright case regarding AI “Venture Pictures”.

It is understood that the plaintiff used the AI ​​image-generating tool Stable Diffusion to generate the images involved in the case and published them on the Xiaohongshu platform. The defendant used the plaintiff's photos involved in the case when publishing articles on Baijiahao.

Therefore, the plaintiff believes that the defendant used the pictures involved in the case without permission and cut off the plaintiff's signature watermark, which seriously violated the plaintiff's right of signature and information network dissemination rights. It requires the defendant to make a public apology and compensate for economic losses.

The defendant argued that it was not sure whether the plaintiff had the rights to the pictures involved in the case. The main content of the article published by the defendant was original poetry, not the pictures involved in the case, and it had no commercial use and no infringement intention.

In the end, the court held that the picture involved met the definition of a work and was a work; the plaintiff was the author of the picture involved and enjoyed the copyright of the picture involved; the defendant violated the rights enjoyed by the plaintiff and should bear infringement liability.

The Beijing Internet Court made a first-instance judgment, ruling that the defendant should apologize and compensate the plaintiff 500 yuan. Neither party filed an appeal, and the first-instance judgment has now taken effect.

Cui Guobin, a professor at Tsinghua University Law School, believes that the judgment in this case meaningfully explored many copyright problems caused by generative AI and proposed reasonable solutions. This is innovative on a global scale and has important reference value for future judicial practice and academic research.
