    Scarlett Johansson vs. OpenAI

    Scarlett Johansson vs. OpenAI

    OpenAI is facing controversy after Scarlett Johansson claimed they used a voice eerily similar to hers in their recent demos without her permission. Johansson has released a statement saying she declined an offer from OpenAI to use her voice and is now seeking legal clarity. OpenAI responded by pausing the voice, insisting it was not modeled after Johansson’s. This incident raises important questions about AI ethics, likeness rights, and the responsibilities of tech companies in this emerging field.
