OpenAI Sees Trademark Triumph in an Attempt to Stop "Misleading Branding”

OpenAI has reportedly won a case to keep the name “OpenAI” as its trademark. According to Reuters, Sam Altman’s firm blocked another company’s use of the trademark name in commerce. The court case win comes at a time when the firm is already battling a few other legalities.

OpenAI Wins Trademark Battle

According to Reuters, the industry leader in artificial intelligence, OpenAI, has persuaded a federal court in California to temporarily prohibit the use of another company’s trademark “Open AI” in commerce. In a ruling on Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers stated that Open Artificial Intelligence Inc.’s branding was likely to cause confusion among consumers and infringe upon OpenAI’s rights.

In an August lawsuit, OpenAI claimed that Ravine and Open Artificial Intelligence had registered an “Open AI” trademark the day following the company’s announcement of its establishment in 2015 in an attempt to “sow consumer confusion.”

OpenAI’s Court Legalities with NYT

The win for the trademark name comes at a time when OpenAI is already fighting other cases in court. A recent one in the line is the copyright infringement case with The New York Times. The corporation behind ChatGPT and other well-known AI platforms, according to the NYT lawsuit, has unfairly utilized its written works. The lawsuit, filed in Federal District Court in Manhattan, alleges that The Times is now facing competition from computerized chatbots that were trained on millions of stories as a reliable source of information.

In a response, OpenAI said that the New York Times “hacked” ChatGPT and other AI systems to fabricate evidence for the case. Additionally, the business has asked a federal judge to dismiss some copyright allegations made against it by the publication. According to a filing in Manhattan federal court, The Times used “deceptive prompts that blatantly violate OpenAI’s terms of use” to get the technology to copy its material.
