Elon Musk Withdraws Lawsuit Against ChatGPT-Maker OpenAI


Over three months after filing a lawsuit accusing OpenAI of going against its original mission, Elon Musk is dropping the suit.

Musk was a co-founder of OpenAI but stepped away in 2018 and now owns rival AI startup xAI. He sued OpenAI in late February in California state court, alleging that the ChatGPT-maker was going against its open-source founding principles and creating AI “to maximize profits for Microsoft, rather than for the benefit of humanity.”

His lawsuit prompted OpenAI leaders to release internal emails he sent from 2015 to 2018 encouraging them to seek funding.

The case could have been dismissed without Musk dropping it. OpenAI had already moved to throw out Musk’s claims and a judge was going to decide on the matter at a hearing originally scheduled for Wednesday in San Francisco, per CNBC.

Though the case is over, Musk is still publicly calling out OpenAI.

On Monday, Musk criticized Apple’s decision to work with OpenAI and bring ChatGPT to the iPhone and said that he would ban Apple devices at his companies.

He wrote, “Apple has no clue what’s actually going on once they hand your data over to OpenAI. They’re selling you down the river.”

Musk has previously called out Google, OpenAI, and Meta’s AI efforts and raised $6 billion last month for his AI startup.
