**VALVE ACKNOWLEDGES AI-GENERATED CONTENT ON STEAM**
In a recent article, it was reported that Valve, the company behind the popular gaming platform Steam, would no longer be publishing games with AI-generated content. However, Valve has clarified that this information is not entirely accurate.
According to a statement from Valve PR representative Kaci Boyle, the company’s goal is not to discourage the use of AI on Steam. Instead, they are working on integrating AI into their existing review policies. Boyle emphasized that the company’s review process takes into account current copyright laws, and developers using AI technologies must ensure that they do not infringe on existing copyrights.
To refine their review process, Valve is offering refunds for app-submission credits to developers whose games were rejected over AI copyright issues. This refund offer was also extended to the user “potterharry97,” who initially raised concerns about the use of AI on Steam.
Valve’s developer submission rules explicitly state that content must not be used without proper ownership or adequate rights. The rejection message received by “potterharry97” specified that their game contained art assets generated by AI that relied on copyrighted material owned by third parties.
It is worth noting that AI-generated content has become increasingly prevalent in the gaming industry. However, the issue of copyright infringement remains a concern, and Valve is taking steps to address this within their review system.
