Two of the largest anime conventions in the U.S. have now completely banned AI-generated artwork from their artists’ alleys.
How do you feel about AI-generated art being banned from Anime NYC and Animé LA? 🤔
We’re, again, talking about AI-generated artwork and copyright!
Apparently, two of the largest anime conventions in the U.S., Anime NYC and AniméLA, have completely banned AI-generated artwork from their artists’ alleys.
Anime NYC hasn’t made a formal announcement yet, but AniméLA’s statement reads:
“Based on the current nature of its implementation and lack of regard toward artists, we cannot in good faith let this kind of product exist in our space. We at AniméLA do not condone or accept any form of AI-generated art piece being used in our promotional materials, nor being sold in our exhibit hall or artists’ alley.”
They even go so far to say that they’ll consider this a form of counterfeit and it will be required to be removed from the event.
