      Literally anyone could have went and scraped these, so I don't think it's suddenly creating a surveillance state

        true, but it's about the motivations, incentive structures, and amount of resources directed toward the act of scraping.
        anyone can park outside your house and watch you. there's a massive gradient between someone parked outside your house for 5 minutes to see whether it's you or someone else vs the government constantly parked outside everyone's house making sure they don't go outside without wearing knee pads, though the two are the same if you break it down to "someone parked outside your house".

    I can't wait for the coming lawsuits.

    The data is clearly a thing of value and clearly it's the user's data, so logically they're stealing a thing of value from people and selling it without their consent. I'm betting they know this and just hope they can build their mega AI before the long arm of the law catches up to them.

        Have you read the terms and conditions of use? Yes, that very long document that comes up when you create an account.

        Those never hold up on court.

            It's a blatant GDPR violation so it already violates existing law kek. Gonna be fun seeing those billion dollar fines for openai in a few months

              That's what arttrannies have been saying for over a year now, and so far seems they are the ones getting destroyed in courts
              And no, GDPR doesn't prevent companies from selling your data as if it was their own, however it requires them to have a way to delete your data if requested, which as far as I know Tumblr and WordPress have

                Which they don't if they feed it into the model. It was already down that you can partially extract training data out of the resulting model

                It was shown with model overfitted on purpose, which doesn't happen in real life
                Also while your data is in the DATASET, once trained into a model it's no longer your data, since it becomes a bunch of tensors

                "Once I convert this data into a different format it's no longer your data, heh"
                Nice cope

                It's not even that it's different format, that's like taking a shirt, disassembling it into threads, and then making something entirely different, it's no longer the original object
                So no, keep coping and while at it models will be trained on your cope

            I always find it hilarious how people believe they are legal documents

            It's actually not, if you sign something online it is very not that legally acceptable because it's hard to prove you saw it signed it read it or it was written in a legible way that makes sense etc etc.. and all documents can be brought up in court and dismantled for malicious practice
            Unless you sign something with a notary it's not really that binding

          You accepted in advance that whatever you upload to their servers they keep the right to use or sell them, it's nothing new, instagram sells the photos of its users and several have ended up advertising for big brands and no, users don't even know about it.

    most data sold through brokers are used to tune machine learning algorithms
    i assume this means they are expanding the variety to whole profiles, including art and everything

    Are they trying to make a fetish bot? Nice. Hopefully they get all my feeder blogs and make a great chatbot.
