We’ve amended our Terms and Conditions to specifically ban the use of large language model-based chatbots such as ChatGPT on other members’ work.

Not every member will understand why we’ve done this, so please let me explain.

The impact of AI chatbots on authors and indeed on society as a whole is still far from clear. While we don’t want to prevent members from experimenting with this technology, and forming their own views, we cannot allow members to input other members’ work (e.g. for review, critique or other purpose) into any large language model-based chatbot.

Members may not be aware that chatbots such as ChatGPT are known to retain submitted data and use it to augment their own large language models (LLMs). If a member of Litopia inputs another members’ work into such a chatbot, they are (perhaps unknowingly) infringing the rights of the author concerned.

If an author wants to give away rights to their work by submitting it to such a chatbot, then that of course is their own personal decision.

As far as we are concerned, we are banning the use of ChatGPT and others chatbots in The Laboratory and in any other area of Litopia where members give input to other members’ work.
