Valve does not approve of Steam games that use copyright-infringing AI artwork


On Thursday, several outlets reported on a June Reddit post from user potterharry97 saying Steam would no longer publish games with AI generated content. Another game developer wrote later in the month a similar message. Valve says that’s not quite right.

In a statement emailed to The edge, Valve PR representative Kaci Boyle said the company’s goal is “not to discourage the use of [AI] on steam; instead, we are working on how to integrate it into our already existing assessment policy.” She continued that the company’s current review process takes into account current copyright laws and that “while developers can use these AI technologies in their work … they cannot infringe on existing copyrights.”

Boyle added that Steam will refund app submission credits to all developers whose games have been rejected due to AI copyright issues as the company refines its review process. It made the same offer to Potterharry97.

Valves developer submission rules do not allow “content that you do not own or to which you do not have appropriate rights”. Potterharry97 included the disclaimer in their post, stating that their game “contains art assets generated by artificial intelligence that appear to rely on copyrighted material owned by third parties.”
