What tools are available to me on ArtStation to make sure my artwork is not used for training AI?
ArtStation has released an update to our platform and terms of service where projects tagged using “NoAI” will automatically be assigned an HTML “NoAI” meta tag. This will explicitly disallow the use of the content by AI systems and mark the project so that they know they are not allowed to use it.
What can I do if I don’t want to see AI artwork on the trending wall?
We’ve enhanced filtering capabilities across ArtStation by adding the ability to hide artwork created with AI on the homepage galleries, search, and marketplaces, making it easier to discover and connect with the content and creators most relevant to you.
Read more on how to use the new filtering options here.
Will ArtStation be banning AI artwork? / Is AI artwork allowed on ArtStation?
ArtStation’s content guidelines do not prohibit the use of AI in the process of artwork being posted. ArtStation is a portfolio platform designed to elevate and celebrate originality powered by a community of artists. The works on your portfolio should be work that you created and we encourage you to be transparent in the process. Please only publish work that either you own or that you have permission to publish. You can read more about our content guidelines here.
We believe that your projects are your own, and you have the right to control how they are used.
What if sellers do not correctly identify their products as CreatedWithAI?
ArtStation now requires CreatedWithAI tagging on all content distributed through the ArtStation Marketplace that was created using generative AI programs, as per our Terms of Service. Product tagging helps provide accurate product information and maintain the integrity of our marketplace. Any products that do not comply with the Terms of Service may be delisted from the platform.
Will my homepage filter preferences be saved if I close my browser?
Yes, any homepage filter preferences saved when you are signed in will persist across other browsers and devices.
Does ArtStation have business deals with AI art generators?
No. As part of our Terms of Service, all of the artwork you post on ArtStation belongs to you. We will not sell or license your artwork to other companies.
Epic does not make any agreements with companies allowing them to scrape content on our website. Any use of ArtStation content that is not consistent with our terms of service may be an infringement on the rights of ArtStation users.
What recourse do I have if someone uses my work without my permission?
We take copyright infringement seriously and it is our goal to provide a professional environment for artists to show their work.
If you are the copyright holder or authorized to act on behalf of the owner of a copyright that was allegedly infringed, please follow the steps on this page: https://www.artstation.com/dmca
Why are all projects not tagged with “NoAI” by default? / Does that mean if I don’t use the tag, I am allowing it?
We believe artists should be free to decide how their art is used, and simultaneously we don't want to become a gatekeeper with site terms that stifle AI research and commercialization when it respects artists' choices and copyright law.
We want to give artists more control over their publicly posted work. If you do not use the tag, you are neither allowing nor disallowing the use of your project for AI. Choosing not to use the tag leaves copyright law to govern whether or not the artwork was fairly used. AI’s use and its place in copyright law is new and unsettled, leaving open many questions about copyright law’s enforceability against use of work in AI. Adding the “NoAI” tag empowers you to clarify that regardless of the state of copyright law, use of your work in AI is not permitted.
