Elon Musk took OpenAI and its CEO Sam Altman to court. Musk, who owns SpaceX, Tesla and X, accuses OpenAI and Altman of betraying the founding goal of “serving humanity rather than pursuing profit.”

In the petition filed in the Supreme Court in San Francisco, USA, Musk reminds that he was one of those who financed the founding of OpenAI. Musk, who is at the top of the list of the richest people in the world, pointed out that he agreed with Sam Altman and Greg Brockman, the president of OpenAI, to preserve the company as a non-profit organization that prioritizes public interest.

The lawsuit states that under the founding agreement, OpenAI will make its code available to the public rather than locking it up for the profit of any private company. But Musk claims that OpenAI and its top executives “set fire to that deal” and “perverted” the company’s mission by adopting a close relationship with Microsoft.

The lawsuit includes the following statements: “OpenAI has been turned into a de facto closed-source subsidiary of Microsoft, the world’s largest technology company. Under the new Board of Directors, the company is developing a general artificial intelligence. However, he does this to maximize Microsoft’s profits rather than for the benefit of humanity.

General artificial intelligence refers to general-purpose artificial intelligence systems that can perform as well as or even better than humans in a wide range of tasks.

Elon Musk seeks injunction on use of OpenAI technology

Elon Musk is suing OpenAI for breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, and unfair business practices. He also wants an injunction to prevent anyone, including Microsoft, from taking advantage of OpenAI technology.
