Find Me On Blowhole | Amazon's (Terrible) Plagiarism Policy
March 20, 2023
The Authors Guild has introduced a new model clause that prohibits the use of authors' works in artificial intelligence training. This would protect authors' intellectual property and ensure they get compensated for their work. The recent trend of "sensitivity readers" censoring children's books has caused a stir in the literary world, with many arguing that it goes against Roald Dahl's legacy of writing for children. Finally, Amazon's use of automated piracy detection has led to numerous authors being wrongfully accused and punished for copyright infringement. This has caused a lot of frustration and confusion for those authors and calls for better protections.
