This includes text, pictures, and videos. But Microsoft’s own rules say something different.

Their terms and conditions state that content is still protected by copyright laws. This means you need permission from the creator to use it.U.S. copyright laws protect many kinds of work. 

It includes software, music, books, and movies. These laws state that work is protected the moment it is created. It doesn’t matter if it is shared online.

Many companies, including Microsoft, are facing lawsuits. They have been accused of using online content without permission to train AI models. This includes a big lawsuit from The New York Times.
