OpenAI Faces GDPR Probe & Lawsuits

OpenAI, supported by Microsoft is under scrutiny by Poland's Personal Data Protection Office for potentially violating the European Union's GDPR data protection regulations. This comes on the heels of a recent class action lawsuit filed against OpenAI in San Francisco, accusing the company of breaching privacy standards.

UODO's President, Jan Nowak, stated, "We'll be probing OpenAI for clarity on various personal data protection aspects." The initial complaint suggests that OpenAI's ChatGPT might have disseminated false information about an individual and failed to provide clear answers regarding personal data handling.

Despite the gravity of these claims, OpenAI has yet to issue a public response.

Furthermore, major tech entities like Microsoft, OpenAI, Google, and Stability AI are contending with fresh lawsuits accusing them of "scraping" copyrighted content and personal data from the web to bolster their AI platforms.

Highlighting OpenAI's influence, ChatGPT experienced an unprecedented surge in popularity, amassing 100 million users just two months post-launch. With Microsoft's substantial investment in OpenAI, the unfolding of these investigations will be keenly observed.
