Valve, which owns the digital game and software distribution service Steam and developer of Half-Life, Portal, Counter-Strike, Left 4 Dead and Dota 2, said it does not prevent products based on artificial intelligence from being placed. Steam. But the company will strictly control copyright infringement and block games and apps whose creation was infringed during content creation by AI forces.
In early June, users began complaining on Reddit that Steam was not publishing AI-generated games. Valve’s PR representative Casey Boyle, in an official appeal to The Verge, said that this is not entirely true.
The company’s goal is “not to discourage the use of AI on Steam; instead, we are working on how to integrate it into our existing content review rules.
The spokeswoman explained that all possible discharges are directly related to current legislation: “developers can use these artificial intelligence technologies in their work… but they cannot violate existing copyrights.”
Valve’s policies prohibit the use in development of “content that you do not own or for which you do not have the appropriate rights.”
The developers who were denied placement most likely included in their games “artificial assets created by artificial intelligence that appear to be based on copyrighted material owned by third parties.”
Boyle added that Steam will refund app submissions to all developers whose games have been rejected due to copyright issues.
The advent of artificial intelligence has added a new and complex dimension to the copyright debate. This problem worries lawyers all over the world.
For example, more than 60% of Russian lawyers who participated in the study of the Moscow Digital School educational platform see the need for legal regulation of AI. And one of the main risks associated with the use of AI, 77% consider only risks in the field of copyright.
