The estate of George Carlin has filed a lawsuit against Dudesy, a podcast outlet, for creating a fake comedy special using AI to imitate the late comedian’s style and material.

The lawsuit alleges violations of Carlin’s right of publicity and copyright, as the special was created without permission and uses copyrighted materials.

The defendants have not responded to the lawsuit, and the authenticity of the AI-generated content has been questioned.

“None of the Defendants had permission to use Carlin’s likeness for the AI-generated ‘George Carlin Special,’ nor did they have a license to use any of the late comedian’s copyrighted materials,” the lawsuit states.

The lawsuit represents a significant legal move in addressing the unauthorized use of celebrity likenesses and the ethical implications of AI-generated content.

The “case is not just about AI, it’s about the humans that use AI to violate the law, infringe on intellectual property rights, and flout common decency,” attorney Josh Schiller said.
