Read the full statement (my emphasis):

Works of art created by Al and its place in the convention hall (art street art gallery). Our staff has been watching the discussion and has determined that based on the current nature of the practice and the lack of attention paid to artists, we can not honestly allow this type of product to be in our premises.

We at Animé Los Angeles do not condone or accept any art form created by Al that is used in our promotional materials and also does not sell in our gallery or artist Alley.

If any form of Al created work that is sold is determined to be like that by our staff, it will be considered a form of counterfeit / illegal goods and will be subject to removal.

Regarding our brand, we strongly defend the work that our contributing artists create and recognize the value they bring to our identity and venue. Whatever you see on our website, our promotional pieces or our products are (and always are) created by artists we have contacted to work directly with. Anything created by Al is unofficial and not endorsed by Animé Los Angeles staff.

For the purposes of this policy, Animé Los Angeles considers any work created by an Al-program that uses sources that the artist does not own or possess as copyright infringement. If in the future such software is created that allows the source of certain images that the artist has, it will be the artist’s responsibility to provide evidence that the pieces were not created from the stolen images. That no.

We stand firm on this issue and will strengthen it while following the discussions here.

Now that the show has drawn the line on the sand, and with the impact of AI art on communities and industries, it will be interesting to see how other events unfold in the coming months.
