A jury has to decide the result of an ongoing lawsuit. The lawsuit involves the renowned information services company called Thomson Reuters. This company is accusing Ross Intelligence of copyright violations.

They are being sued for unlawfully plagiarising content from the legal-research platform
“Westlaw”. They are apparently using the copyrighted information to train an AI Platform. This platform in question is mostly artificial intelligence-based. The ruling was delivered by a federal judge from in a Court of Delaware.

This court decision in question comes from the U.S. Circuit Judge Stephanos Bibas. It stands as a stepping stone to one of the first trials on unauthorized data use for the purpose of training AI platforms.

Currently, multiple lawsuits are going on, including one with the Meta Platforms, Stability AI and the Chat GPT parent organization, Microsoft-backed OpenAI. These organizations are all facing lawsuits of great magnitude.

Authors, artists and original owners of copyrights are suing AI Platforms for the illegitimate use of their work to train their bots. Thomson Reuters has delivered an official statement that says that the parent company of Reuters News, will soon be furnishing relevant evidence to a jury.

“This case continues to be about Ross’ theft of Thomson Reuters proprietary commentary, analysis, and organizational system,” the Reuters spokesperson said. “We sought summary judgment on select issues because we believe the facts of the case are clear cut” they added.
