“Microsoft has announced its Copilot Copyright Commitment in response to user concerns about potential IP infringement when using outputs from their AI-powered Copilots. This commitment assures users that they can utilize Copilot services without copyright infringement worries. If legal issues arise, Microsoft will take responsibility, defending the user and covering any adverse judgments or settlements, provided users adhere to Microsoft’s guidelines and content filters.
This is huge! Most of the pushback we’re getting from our corporate clients is focused on potential risk of copyright infringement. GCs cite the large number of ongoing lawsuits, arguing that the unknown outcomes pose too great a risk to their organizations. Microsoft just put its $2.45 trillion market cap behind its AI customers. That should take care of that.”
From the Shelly Palmer blog. Yep. This IS huge.
