Ensuring Ethical Practices: A Reminder For Public Domain Image Users And Ai Artists

2

As artists, we are constantly inspired by the wealth of imagery available online. However, it’s crucial to remember that not all images are free for unrestricted use, despite being labelled as “public domain” or found through search engines. This is particularly pertinent for both public domain (PD) image users and creators employing AI-generated imagery.

The internet is rife with misconceptions regarding public domain images. Many images labelled as such on various websites are not actually in the public domain, leading to potential copyright infringement issues for unsuspecting users. It’s imperative for artists to verify the licensing and copyright status of any image they intend to use, regardless of its source.

Similarly, AI artists must be vigilant about the origins of the images they generate. While AI can produce remarkable artworks, it often relies on datasets comprised of copyrighted material. As creators, we bear the responsibility of ensuring that the images we generate and share are ethically sourced and used with proper permissions.

A concerning trend is the appropriation of copyrighted material, such as Disney images, by individuals who assume that anything found through a simple internet search, or captured from a screen, is fair game. This misconception can have legal ramifications and perpetuates a culture of disregard for intellectual property rights.

In essence, it’s incumbent upon all artists to uphold ethical standards in their creative practices. By respecting copyright laws and obtaining appropriate permissions, we not only safeguard ourselves from legal troubles but also contribute to a culture of respect for artistic ownership and creativity.

Let’s foster a community where artistic expression thrives within the bounds of ethical conduct, ensuring that our creative endeavours are not only legally sound but also morally grounded. Together, we can elevate the discourse surrounding image usage and AI-generated art, promoting a culture of integrity and respect in the digital landscape.
