Several authors joined the Authors Guild to support the class action suit against OpenAI claiming copyright infringement of their works for algorithm training.
17 authors including Jodi Picoult and George R.R. Martin accuse OpenAI of feeding their manuscript to it to create more human-like responses.
The suit also alleges that OpenAI's models affect their livelihood because it generates text that they would be paid to write.
Other major claims in the complaint include illegal book downloads and rewriting works in the authors' style without any monetary compensation.
In the list are also two new AI-generated volumes of Martin's Games of Thrones series available on Amazon.
The press release demands author control over how, if at all, generative AI uses creative works.
Recently, comedian Sarah Silverman also sued Meta and OpenAI for using her books to train their language models without her consent or knowledge.
Actor Stephen Fry also recently claimed that AI used the Harry Potter audiobooks to clone his voice and use it in a documentary without his consent.
