EN: Existent policy enables the use of AI-generated media. Click here to access EN's guide on the use of media. EN will be conducting a community survey in order to get feedback from the community to inform their policies regarding the matter. A new policy may be proposed at the end of January 2023.


KO: Follows EN's Policy. Click here to access EN's guide on the use of media.


RU: There is no policy.


TH: There is no policy.


FR: There is no policy yet but the use of AI-generated media is discouraged due to its unclear status, pending clear legislation on the matter. It can be expected from both the European and French legislator to settle on a rather strict interpretation of moral rights that makes it hard for any AI content generation model to release its content under conditions that are compatible with the CC BY-SA 3.0 license.


IT: There is no policy but the use of AI-generated media is discouraged for the same reasons as FR.


ZH: There is no policy but the use of AI-generated media is discouraged.

« There is no specific policy for AI yet. But that kind of media [AI-generated media] is generally considered not compatible with CC by our staff and thus the usage is practically, if not forbidden, discouraged. »


PT: The usage of AI-generated media has been disallowed as per the results of a community vote.


DE: Existent policy completely forbids the usage of AI-generated media in all articles, including in translated articles.


ES: Existent policy completely forbids the usage of AI-generated media in all articles, including in translated articles.

« In Japan, there is no law recognizing "fair use", and there are no laws or precedents regarding the copyright of machine-generated content.

For several years, SCP-JP has banned the direct use of "AI/machine learning generated" media, including machine translation, and responded to individual cases.

In response to the prevalence of AI-generated media last year (as it is already 2023 in Japan), SCP-JP announced a "Provisional ban on the use of media generated by AI services":

SCP-JP also added the following sentence to the "Examples of prohibited media" section in the "Image Use Policy" page;
"Media generated using various AI-generated media services"
