ChatGPT & SYSTRAN : Data Protection


Data is essential for both tools, but Data Protection is differentiated and differentiating

Intellectual Property

In the OpenAI Terms and Conditions, Article 3 states that the user will own the content generated by the tool. However, the user is also considered to be solely responsible for the content, either for the information transmitted by the user or for the content generated by the tool. If the content generated infringes the rights of third parties, the user will be held responsible, without the possibility of turning to OpenAI.

The risk of plagiarism is inevitable with the number of data ChatGPT uses from various sources

It is unlikely that openAI has obtained the permission of each author for the re-use of the content introduced for learning ChatGPT. ChatGPT also does not include its sources in its responses to users, which could potentially infringe on copyright.

In January, several companies filed a lawsuit against GitHub, OpenAI, and Microsoft for obtaining licensed source code to design the Copilot solution. These companies claimed that the tool could violate copyright if it was able to fully reproduce the code in a video game or other licensed software.

Cyberhaven has published a study in which it is indicated that 11% of the data employees post on ChatGPT is confidential.

More and more businesses, public institutions and teaching are restricted or prohibited use of ChatGPT.


Samsung group had authorized engineers from the Samsung Semiconductor branch, responsible for designing electronic components such as memory, storage, processors or photo sensors, to use ChatGPT to correct source code problems.

Samsung knowingly revealed the source code for a new program that is now stored on OpenAI servers

Samsung has decided to restrict the use of Chat GPT, already in force at JP Morgan and Verizon.
