OpenAI has the following clause in their T&Cs:
Creators who wish to publish their first-party written content (e.g., a book, compendium of short stories) created in part with the OpenAI API are permitted to do so under the following conditions:
- The published content is attributed to your name or company.
- The role of AI in formulating the content is clearly disclosed in a way that no reader could possibly miss, and that a typical reader would find sufficiently easy to understand.
- We kindly ask that you refrain from sharing outputs that may offend others.
Would OpenAI have any legal recourse against someone who violates these T&Cs? As per my understanding, machine-generated texts are not copyrightable, so OpenAI won't be able to sue you for a copyright violation. They obviously could shutdown your account but would they have any means to enforce their attribution rules via the legal system?
