Amazon will require publishers on Kindle to disclose when any of their content is generated by artificial intelligence after complaints forced the company to take action.
“We require you to inform us of AI-generated content (text, images or translations) when you publish a new book or make edits to and republish an existing book through KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing). AI-generated images include cover and interior images and artwork,” Amazon said of the updated guidelines, according to a report in Cyber News.
The update comes after the company faced complaints from users that some works being sold under the names of human writers contained content that was either fully or partially generated by AI, according to the report.
Some of the content was being published on Amazon under the names of well-known authors who were not involved in the books.
Amazon did not immediately respond to a Fox News request for comment.
