Question posted in the Intellectual Property Law category relating to Western Cape

Hi joined a website that does print on demand. You give them designs and they print it and get a portion of what is maid. Any deffects they make, they will reimbured the customer. I am creating Ai art from a website that gives a commercial licence that allows any one to create with texts. Here is the liscence they give which understand. 

Can I use my image generations for commercial purposes?

The good news is that as per our Terms of Service, you can indeed use your images for commercial purposes! There are a few caveats though, so here’s a full breakdown:

Leonardo.Ai allows you to use the website for both personal and commercial purposes, however, the content generated by users is subject to and governed by Section 3 in our Terms of Service.

Effectively, while a paid subscription is active, users retain full ownership, copyright, and all other intellectual property rights to their images.

For images that are made public, Leonardo.Ai and its successors retain worldwide perpetual rights to use, copy, reproduce, process, adapt, modify, publish, transmit, create derivative works of, publicly display, publicly perform, sublicense, and distribute images and text prompts you input into the services, or any assets produced by the service at your direction.

Additionally, other users are granted a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to access these publicly available assets through the service and to use those assets only as enabled by a feature of the service.

Please refer to our Terms of Service for full details, but here are some detailed examples for clarity:

Example 1

As a free plan user, Jason wants to create a design for his T-shirt business…

Jason can use free tools such as the AI-Generations tool to create new concepts.

Jason can use any of the fine-tuned models to experiment with different styles for his concept.

Jason can “remix” another image on the public feed for his concept.

Jason can “copy prompt” from another image on the public feed to experiment with his own concept.

However, all of Jason’s design concepts will also be publicly viewable for other Leonardo users to copy and remix, just like he did.

Question that i have is regards to superhero copywright. I understand selling any chacters with the brands of marvel and Dc comics can get you into throuble. What about the random generation of a random new chacter by artificial intellegence.
