The New York Times ‘hacked’ ChatGPT, according to OpenAI, using a bug to file a lawsuit against it

<p>The New York Times filed a complaint against Microsoft and OpenAI, the company that created ChatGPT, around two months ago. The complaint claims that in order to train the Large Language Models (LLMs) that drive the ChatGPT chatbot, Microsoft and OpenAI “copied” stories, articles, and other published information from The New York Times.</p>

<p>As a new development in the court case, OpenAI is attempting to have some of the claim dismissed. OpenAI claims that The New York Times “hacked” ChatGPT to collect false proof to back its claims, a claim that was first made public by Reuters. OpenAI hasn’t, however, disclosed any details about the precise person or organization in charge of the purported ChatGPT attack.</p>
<p>OpenAI claimed, requesting the lawsuit to be dismissed, “They were able to do so only by targeting and exploiting a bug by using deceptive prompts that blatantly violate OpenAI’s terms of use.”</p>
<p>Additionally, OpenAI said that by providing “deceptive prompts that blatantly violate OpenAI’s terms of use,” The New York Times deceived ChatGPT.</p>
<p>OpenAI said, “The Times’s complaint’s allegations do not live up to its renownedly high standards of journalism.” “The Times paid someone to hack OpenAI’s products, and that information will come to light throughout this legal process.”</p>
<p>“What OpenAI bizarrely mischaracterizes as ‘hacking’ is simply using OpenAI’s products to look for evidence that they stole and reproduced The Times’s copyrighted work,” said Ian Crosby, an attorney for The New York Times, in a prompt response.</p>
<p>For the uninitiated, OpenAI is being sued for “wide-scale copying” from several media outlets, with a focus on NYT material receiving “particular emphasis.” The complaint is not only targeting The Times.</p>
<p>Big tech firms in the artificial intelligence space have emphasized time and time again that AI systems fairly use copyrighted content and that this litigation might impede the development of a multitrillion dollar industry. It is crucial to emphasize that legislators have not yet clarified whether or not AI training is considered a fair use of intellectual information.</p>
