This might be one of the most disaster lawsuits ever. How is THIS what every artist online is hitching their wagon to? They're basically saying ALL stable diffusion art is just an infinite number of ctrl C + ctrl V of copyrighted images and they just compressed all the billions of images really hard, and even one part says "just open stable diffusion's brain in the downloaded version and you'll find what it's infringing it's just compressed really hard it's not a black box lol".
Even then, they later say that even if the artwork coming out is totally and absolutely and entirely different, it was still based on copyrighted artwork so it's still illegal, it's a wild lawsuit, how did they get the entire artist community to agree to "if you've learned anything from anything copyrighted, everything you do is instantly copyright afterwards, fruit of the poisoned tree", i've never heard this in my life.
