Elon Musk Drops Lawsuit Against OpenAI Over Alleged Abandonment of Original Mission

Elon has infinity money to sue people, and yet he somehow manages to pick the stupidest possible targets and then lose.


Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk on Tuesday moved to dismiss his lawsuit accusing ChatGPT maker OpenAI and its CEO Sam Altman of abandoning the startup’s original mission of developing artificial intelligence for the benefit of humanity and not for profit.

Attorneys for Musk asked the California state court to dismiss the lawsuit, originally filed in February, without giving a reason for the move, according to a filing in San Francisco Superior Court.

Um, maybe because it didn’t make any sense?

A Superior Court judge there was prepared to hear OpenAI’s bid to dismiss the lawsuit at a hearing scheduled for Wednesday.

OpenAI and an attorney for Musk did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Musk dismissed his case without prejudice, which means he could refile it at another time.

The lawsuit said Altman and OpenAI co-founder Greg Brockman approached Musk to make an open source, non-profit company, but the startup established in 2015 is now focused on making money.

Yeah, well, if he hadn’t sold his entire stake in the company, then he would have grounds upon which to act. As it is, he was suing a company for doing something he disagrees with.

This is like if I sued McDonald’s because I think McMuffins should have two slices of cheese instead of one. You can’t sue companies because they make business decisions you don’t like.

Why doesn’t he file a lawsuit relating to the Civil Rights Act?

Do you have to fire white people to replace them with illegal immigrants?

The Supreme Court has never ruled on that.

In terms of AI, he should be suing the government for trying to regulate it. Instead, he’s out there saying it should be regulated because he thinks Terminator is real.

What a fat, gay retard.

He is right about Apple integrating ChatGPT into their operating system.

Though that seems unlikely to actually happen.

The US government uses Apple phones, so they have to have a certain level of security. Installing ChatGPT into the operating system would be completely insane.
