    It's not, it's only banning said AI art if there is a suspicion or close resemblance to someone else's copyrighted artwork.

      No, re-read the text. They're demanding that you PROVE you own the work by actively claiming anything you dont prove is AI work.

      They're not saying your art resembles AI, they're demanding that you prove its not AI. Which is an absurd overreach.

        no it's not. there is literally zero issue with proving you drew something if you're not an AI artist.

          The burden of proof isn't on the game makers, its on the one making the claim that its AI and on top of that, there's a second burden of proof required to show that even if its AI, it must be bad. Then on top of that, it must be shown that this someone is illegal in some means, but its not.

          So there's a 3 level of frickery Steam is adopting.

                sorry, but who's doing the crying right now? you're making the assumption that steam is doing it out of ideological goodwill towards artists. because of your victim complex.
                also have a nice day for diluting troony as an insult. calling everyone you hate a troon is well proven troon behavior.

                If trannies didn't exist, artists would still complain about AI potentially replacing them.

                there have been real legal efforts to criminalize generative ai. when you say "trannies" (have a nice day) "like you seethed about 'AI stealing your job/work'" what you really mean is that artgays are creating a legal situation that affects the bottom line of platforms. your seethe has no legal backing. that valve is ignoring you doesn't mean you aren't malding all the same.
                not an artist. I can give literally zero fricks about art, because I'm not a cumbraln to be dripfed arousing images in my basement ten hours a day. wake me up when storytelling and music production AI get to the same level.

                No there isn't. The copyright law protects not only derivative works, but also inspired works. Especially when its not a direct duplicate. You can't just copyright a style of someone. No such legal work allows that.

          Unremarkable enough to warrant multiple lawsuits. You're cherry-picking and admitting to it, then dismissing everything else as "pointless".
          You also throw away people's arguments then find the most insignificant detail in which they might be technically wrong but also doesn't even invalidate their whole point.

      You can generally launch games without going through the steam client, and if they require further online validation then that is on the game publisher.

        Most idiots that publish stuff on pixiv and alike don't even bother trying anything else than NAI and just dump everything that they generate
        I've successfully managed to run a pixiv account using my own personal merge of models, where I upload like once every two weeks to seem legit, a cherrypicked image, which I don't tag as AI generated, and literally noone called me out on it so far, after like 5 months of doing this, despite my most popular image having over 3000 bookmarks, so in my opinion it's mostly a matter of sticking to one model and just cherrypicking the best image

    are they also going to ban artists who have looked at other people's art before creating their assets?

      They should if they're being fair. I thought the point of the DMCA was to handle all of this, even if poorly with too much benefit of the doubt granted to those making a claim.

      God I hope so. UE is hot garbage and Unity indie trash doesn't belong on Steam. Getting indie garbage shovelware off Steam should be a priority.

      >indie trash doesn't belong on Steam
      Would you prefer infinity Ubisoft Game (tm) Current Year edition? There are potentially other styles of gameplay out there.

    Is Steam going to ban Unreal and Unity once they start integrating AI tools for game development?

      I used chatgpt to generate descriptions for my mods on workshop.

      Go ahead ban me lol, such a win to all the poor description writers I've replaced.

    Been saying for a while that "AI"'s biggest hurdle is using legal training sets, and that any current model being used can't be copywritten. It's why it won't go anywhere commercially until the legal issues are resolved, and companies/users can build training data that's legal.
    But you keep jerking off to the idea that everyone is going to lose their jobs, lol.

      If it wasn't for copyrights they would be whining about CP generation or racism or some other shit.
      This was never about unethical data sources or whatever. Since day 0 it was just bunch of failed twitter artists spreading FUD because they are frightened they will be replaced.

                thankfully I don't draw. I've also been on BOT long enough to know how rabid coomers can get when their preferred fetish comes under scrutiny in any way.

                I didn't said they are the same. I just said that they all are used to spread FUD about AI.
                What's your point even?

                steam obviously wouldn't ban generated goyslop for the reason that models could incidentally generate synthetic CP. it's none of their business as a business. of course you'd think they care, because that'd feed into your victim status. there is no need to ban soulless coomer AI trash to ban CP looking assets from the platform.

                you're incredibly naive. who do you think is behind this steam AI-art ban (if it's legit)? sour artgay steam jannies who can sense their existence is becoming even less relevant by the minute. there's literally 0 reason for steam to ban games on his platform before any legal precedent

                at most, they'd tag games that used AI and let the gamers decide if they want to support those devs or not

                obviously the jannies must've all been artists. and the "jannies" must have been the one making policy. cope harder

    Good. Day of the rope for proompters can't come soon enough. Either hire an actual artist or use shitty programmer art, either will take more soul than AIslop.

    Good. They know exactly when to draw the line with this. They need to start regulating AI sooner than later. This will be a big discussion in these coming years as AI becomes too advanced and easily accessible.

    They're probably just trying to get ahead of legislation being implemented that does the same thing.
