Ownership of Images Generated from Stable Diffusion

"Unlike models like DALL-E, Stable Diffusion makes its source code available,[49][1] along with the model (pretrained weights). It applies the Creative ML OpenRAIL-M license, a form of Responsible AI License (RAIL), to the model (M).[50] The licence prohibits certain use cases, including crime, libel, harassment, doxing, "exploiting ... minors", giving medical advice, automatically creating legal obligations, producing legal evidence, and "discriminating against or harming individuals or groups based on ... social behavior or ... personal or personality characteristics ... [or] legally protected characteristics or categories".[51][52] The user owns the rights to their generated output images, and is free to use them commercially.[53]" 

Rights to Generated Images:

  • Despite these restrictions, the license grants users ownership rights over the images they generate using Stable Diffusion. Users are free to use these generated images commercially, meaning they can potentially sell the images or use them in commercial products without needing to pay royalties or seek further permission from the creators of Stable Diffusion.
