Alright, motherfuckers, listen up! Hollywood writers and the Writers Guild of America (WGA) have been going through some shit during the strikes, and one of their major concerns is how artificial intelligence (AI) is gonna fuck with their jobs in film and TV production. But don’t worry, they’ve come up with a plan to protect themselves.
So, this new agreement they’re working on specifies that AI-generated writing can’t be considered “literary material.” That means any shit created by AI can’t be treated like real writing by human beings. And if a writer wants to use AI tools, they gotta get permission from the studio and play by their AI rules. But here’s the best part – using AI won’t screw them out of getting credit or getting paid. They still get what they deserve, even if fucking robots helped them out.
And it’s not just a one-time deal. The WGA and the studios are gonna meet up regularly to talk about how AI is being used in film and TV production. They wanna make sure that writers are protected and that AI doesn’t take over the whole fucking process.
Now, let’s talk about why this shit matters. AI has come a long way, my friends. There are tools out there that can whip up entire scripts on demand. But here’s the problem – the data used to create this new writing is based on shit that humans have already written and copyrighted. So, these Hollywood writers gotta make sure that their hard work isn’t being used without giving them any credit or fucking pay. And they definitely don’t want to be replaced by some goddamn AI that can write a whole screenplay.
This new agreement is gonna fix that. It says that any writing done by AI can’t be considered that precious “literary material.” It’s just a tool, not the real deal. And if a company wants a writer to use AI-generated shit to create something new, they gotta be upfront about it. The writer still gets full credit, and if other human writers come in to do rewrites, they gotta share the credit.
But here’s the thing – writers can’t be forced to use AI tools. They still gotta give their consent. However, they might have to use non-generative AI tools to check for plagiarism or copyright infringement. That’s just the way it is.
Now, this agreement isn’t just about restrictions on how studios can use AI. It also protects writers who wanna use AI tools. They gotta get permission, play by the studio’s AI rules, but they still get their credit and pay. That’s only fair.
One more thing – AI is always changing and evolving. So, the agreement includes regular meetings between studios and the WGA to talk about AI use and future plans. They’re gonna keep up with this shit, protect the writers, and make sure AI doesn’t fuck everything up.
Look, this agreement is just the beginning. Other people in the industry, like actors, VFX workers, editors, they’re gonna want their own protections too. AI is gonna affect all areas of production, so everyone’s gotta step up and make sure their jobs aren’t taken over by fucking robots.
You heard it here, folks. Hollywood writers are taking a stand against AI. They’re making sure they get the credit and pay they deserve. And they’re gonna keep fighting to protect their fucking jobs. Source: Proposed WGA Basic Agreement.
