OpenAI’s News Corp deal licenses content from WSJ, New York Post

The Verge: “OpenAI has struck a deal with News Corp, the media company that owns The Wall Street Journal, the New York Post, The Daily Telegraph, and others. As reported by The Wall Street Journal, OpenAI’s deal with News Corp could be worth over $250 million in the next five years “in the form of cash and credits for use of OpenAI technology.” The multi-year agreement gives OpenAI access to current and archived articles from News Corp publications for AI training and to answer user questions. This is the latest in a string of licensing deals OpenAI has inked with major media companies and outlets, including The Associated Press, the Financial Times, People publisher Dotdash Meredith, and Politico owner Axel Springer. Some outlets have filed lawsuits against OpenAI instead, like The New York Times, New York Daily NewsChicago Tribune, and The Intercept. They’ve accused both OpenAI and Microsoft of copyright infringement by training AI models on their work. The partnership also includes outlets like Barron’s, MarketWatch, Investor’s Business Daily, FN, The Sunday TimesThe Sun, and The Australian, among others, and News Corp will “share journalistic expertise” with OpenAI to “ensure the highest journalism standards.”
