Hi all. We’ll use this thread to compile any BRIA-related questions you might have, and I’ll keep this post updated with answers when they are available. I’ll start with a list that may address some of your initial questions:
Who is BRIA AI?
BRIA AI is a visual generative AI company that offers visual generative AI trained foundation models, source code, APIs, and development productivity tools.
What does this partnership mean for you as a part of our Author community?
Once the model is commercialized and generates content using items provided by Envato as part of its training, it is intended that the model will facilitate attribution of this use to Envato, and provide revenue for part of that content creation. In turn, Envato intends to share this revenue with the author(s) of the item(s) that are attributed as part of the training.
Why have we chosen to partner with BRIA AI?
We strongly believe that there is a need for AI tools that appropriately recognize and compensate the creators of content that is attributed to and trained on. Our shared vision with BRIA AI paves the way for a collaboration that aligns our ethical standards and creates new revenue streams for our community.
What’s happened so far?
Current work has been focused on building viable, responsible AI models that can serve the diverse needs of creative customers. To date, this has involved training BRIA AI’s text-to-image models using high quality photo and still images from stock video items, with appropriate rights. The launch of these models will make them accessible to developers and businesses – opening up the potential for commercial use.
How will I know if my items are used and when would I see income from this?
Once the model is commercialized and is generating content using items provided by Envato as part of its training, it is intended that it will attribute this use to Envato and in turn facilitate a mechanism for Envato to provide revenue for part of that content creation. In turn, Envato intends to share this revenue with the author(s) of the item(s) that are attributed as part of the training of the content created. If you are one of these authors, you will begin to see revenue from this source listed under “Other Royalties” on your monthly earnings statement. As the revenue will be based on commercial use, we cannot provide an exact timeline–it could be any time from now into the future.
Which items are included in this partnership?
Our contribution to BRIA’s training data consists of visual content drawn from Envato Elements. These are a combination of photos, still images (taken from stock video) and graphics.
Will all items that have been provided to BRIA AI generate revenue for the author?
Only if your item is used in generating a final product that is monetized. You would then receive a proportionate compensation.
Will this partnership involve any other item types?
At this point the partnership with BRIA AI is specific to photos, still images (taken from stock video) and graphics.
Can I sell AI-generated items through Envato?
Not at this stage - our AI-generated Content Policy for Market and Elements still restricts the use of AI-generated assets to item preview purposes only, and they must not be included in the download file. As the field of AI-generated content is rapidly changing, these guidelines may also be updated over time.
