Legal principles of is an AI-powered tool for artists and visual creators. It lets you train your own AI model and create images in your style in seconds with a simple description. It allows artists to visualise elaborate scenes that would typically require intensive work. Here is a short explanation of our key legal principles and terms.

Legal and ownership

We would like you to read the Terms of Use and Copyright Policyto know all the policies we have in place. But here is a quick explainer of the principles:

  • Images that you upload to belong to you.
  • If you train an AI model on your work, it belongs to you.
  • Images you create with models trained on your work belong to you.
  • Images created with AI models trained on someone else’s work do not belong to you.
  • You may secure the rights to use these images from the original artists.

What is a copyright?

Copyright is an intellectual property right that protects the copyright owner by giving them a right to control their work and how it is used. Simply, it means no one else can lawfully use or copy their work without their permission. Copyright owners can use, sell, or license their work to a third party. To qualify for copyright protection, a work must have some skill, labor, or judgment in its creation.

What is a license?

A copyright license is an agreement, usually in writing, between a copyright owner and a third party that gives that third party the legal right to use the copyright-protected work for designated purposes, typically in exchange for payment.

What is the difference between a license and a copyright?

Copyright is a legal right that protects the copyright owner and their work. In contrast, a copyright license agreement is a contract by which the copyright owner gives a third party the right to use their copyright-protected work.

If I train a model on my artwork on, which rights do I have to that model?

If you create an AI model with your artwork, you own the model and any content generated by anyone using your model. You grant a license to publish this model on the platform if you want to do so. If your model is published, you and other users can create images with your model. You don’t have to publish all of your models. But you might want to publish some of them to see what others can create with your style and technique. If other users create images with your model, you own the copyright.

If I create an image on, which rights do I have to that image?

If you create an image using a model that belongs to you, you have a copyright to that image. If you create an image with a model that does not belong to you, then the model's owner has a copyright to that image.

Can I sell images created with my model to anyone?

Yes, you can. You can sell images created with your model because those images belong to you. You can determine the price and the terms of the agreement yourself. You don’t have to share any proceeds of this transaction with us.

According to the Terms of Use, you also grant us the right to sell licenses for images produced with your public models on your behalf. The proceeds of that transaction will be transferred to you.
