Free DALL-E from Microsoft, with a catch

As part of Office 365, Microsoft released Designer – basically, a service to generate images using DALL-E.

The catch is that while OpenAI doesn’t claim any rights for your images, Microsoft states, that:

“By using the Service, posting, uploading, inputting, providing or submitting content you are granting Microsoft, its affiliated companies and necessary sublicensees permission to use your content in connection with the operation of their Internet businesses (including, without limitation, all Microsoft Services), including, without limitation, the license rights to: copy, distribute, transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, reproduce, edit, translate and reformat your content; and the right to sublicense such rights to any supplier of the Services.

No compensation will be paid with respect to the use of your content, as provided herein. Microsoft is under no obligation to post or use any content you may provide, and Microsoft may remove any content at any time in its sole discretion.”

Microsoft wouldn’t be Microsoft, if it wouldn’t claim rights for what you already paid.
