FAQ

  • Will I be able to "opt-in" to AI datasets eventually?
    Yes, ultimately we believe it should be a choice given to each artist to decide where/when/how their images are used in AI. We have built our solution on DLT to ensure artists can monetize their work with complete transparency and clarity in the future.
  • How does Overlai protect my images from AI scraping?
    We use a combination of technologies to protect your images from AI scraping. The core of our protection starts with Distributed Ledger Technology, decentralized storage, automated dataset opt-outs and advanced invisible watermarks combined with our patented technology to disrupt AI datasets.
  • Why do you use Distributed Ledger Technology?
    Distributed Ledger Technology provides an immutable origination point for your photos. By combining this with decentralized storage and custom rights managed contracts, Overlai establishes a tamper resistant record of your photo and the rights that are granted (or in our case, not granted) to AI crawlers.
