OpenAI has filed a motion to dismiss Elon Musk's lawsuit, Bloomberg reports. OpenAI says Musk's claim that the company abandoned its altruistic principles in favor of profits is "revisionist history." OpenAI claims that Musk wants to use OpenAI's success for his own competing AI company, XAI. In his lawsuit, Musk quotes from OpenAI's founding charter, in which the company promises to make its products open source for the benefit of the general public. OpenAI counters that it never promised not to monetize its technology. The charter also states that the open-source clause does not apply in principle, but only when open source is actually useful, which OpenAI says must be constantly discussed. The partnership with Microsoft does not violate any agreements. A hearing on the dismissal of the lawsuit is scheduled for April 24, Bloomberg reports.
