Adobe launches AI-generated images with powerful medicine: Compensation for infringement! The enterprise version of Firefly is now online
How to solve the suspected infringement of AI-generated pictures? Adobe guarantees: users just play, we will compensate for any infringement!
Now, Adobe has officially launched Firefly for corporate customers and ensures that Adobe will bear any compensation for copyright infringement lawsuits during use.
Not long ago, Adobe integrated Firefly into Photoshop, and now they are offering a "guaranteed compensation service". This efficiency is as good as Midjourney and Stable Diffussion, and they seize the time to seize the market.
Adobe, you really spend a lot of money to steal people! Let’s just say, is this how rich people play?
Netizens said: It seems that everyone can create with peace of mind in the future without worrying about legal proceedings.
But there are also a handful of netizens who want to cause trouble: Compensation is guaranteed, right? Okay, let's give it a try.
Feel free to play, we will compensate for any infringement
Recently, Adobe's vice president of digital media said at the Summit event that it has officially launched an expanded version of Firefly for enterprise users, and has set up a legal fund to provide "comprehensive compensation for generated content infringement lawsuits." The purpose is to allow enterprise customers to rest assured The company's business deploys generative AI tools.
Why can Adobe be so confident? According to the official statement, the company's model data mainly comes from Adobe's copyrighted stock images and publicly authorized content, and compliance and intellectual property protection are guaranteed.
And for a long time in the past, Adobe has been providing compensation services for its own products, especially stock images, so it just continues the "compensation" practice.
Although the official claims that the product is completely commercially safe , "how can you often walk by the river without getting your shoes wet," especially for generative AI that likes to use creativity.
Since compensation is guaranteed, can anyone sue for infringement? Even if you haven’t used Adobe Firefly? The official stated that "the compensation was promised to avoid being sued, and the specific details of how this will be done cannot be disclosed."
It seems like he said something, but he seems like he didn't say anything at all
Adobe’s own copyright issues
Although Adobe guarantees that its copyrights are fine, this is not the case.
According to Adobe's official statement, model data comes from internal copyrighted stock images and publicly authorized content. So, are the copyrights of stock image creatives protected? Have you received due compensation?
Adobe response: We are developing a compensation model for creatives on stock images. We will share more details when Firefly ends beta testing and will be accountable to both customers and creatives.
Netizen: Really? The first people to receive legal protection are enterprises (jin), customers (ba), and clients (ba), not creative people.
In addition, is Adobe’s compensation guarantee service limited to US customers? How do customers in other countries/regions receive compensation?
Copyright issues have always been one of the most difficult issues for generative AI, and the ownership of AI-generated content has always been controversial.
In January this year, three artists filed a lawsuit against Stability AI, Midjourney and the artist platform DeviantArt on the grounds that these companies used 5 billion images scraped from the Internet to train their AI tools, infringing on the rights of "millions of artists" Copyright of the work.
Getty Images and Unsplash, the world's largest photo galleries, have earlier announced a ban on uploading and selling illustrations generated using AI tools such as DALL-E, Midjourney, and Stable Diffusion.

There are also those who choose to enter if they can’t beat it. For example, Shutterstock encourages users to use AI to make pictures and will compensate those who contribute to the data set.
Of course, if it is AI-assisted creation, there should be no doubt that the user has relevant rights. But for AI automatically generated content, judging from the user agreements of foreign AIGC products, most platforms will allocate the rights to AI automatically generated content to users through contractual agreements.
Even though it has made bold claims of "guaranteed compensation," Adobe seems to have not yet fully understood copyright liability.
