The Writers Guild of America (WGA) got their way and ended the strike. On the AI side of things, the WGA essentially got what it has been asking for all along. According to the contract, AI cannot write or rewrite literary material and material created by AI cannot be used as source material.

Studios can no longer, for example, ask ChatGPT to come up with a story and ask the writers to turn it into a script, the rights of which remain with the studio.

The WGA also reserves the right to interpret whether the use of the authors’ material to train AI is prohibited by law. This means that if laws change or AI training reaches a point of contention for guild members, the WGA can call it exploitation.
