OpenAI’s Web-Crawling Bot Undermines Original Content Incentives

  • OpenAI deploys GPTbot, a spiderbot that extracts data from the web for training AI models, posing a risk to online content creators.
  • Unlike Googlebot, the GPTbot does not redirect users to original creators while using their content, causing a breakdown of the ‘internet economy deal’.
  • Creators and online entities are increasingly blocking GPTbot, with calls for AI data scraping to become ‘opt-in’ rather than ‘opt-out’.
