    This is the best summary I could come up with:

    If you’re among the majority of Australians with Facebook or Instagram accounts, your social activity on those platforms is about to start training Meta’s artificial intelligence (AI) tools – and if you live in Australia, you can’t say no.

    When that policy comes into effect, Meta will start taking user data from as far back as 2007 and use it to train and improve their AI tools.

    Dr Joanne Gray, a lecturer in digital cultures at the University of Sydney, explains: "The precedent in the US suggests that these companies are doing it under fair use, a US exemption that allows you to do some copying and create something new.

    Speaking of legal cases, advocacy group NOYB (none of your business) has launched 11 complaints against Meta in the EU in relation to this new policy.

    They’ve now added a “Made by AI” label, requiring users to have all realistic appearing AI-generated content carry it.

    Cara incorporates a project called Glaze, “a system designed to protect human artists by disrupting style mimicry in the training of generative AI models”.
