Removing traces of plagiarism through AI

Fatwaa ID: 2357

Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu.

I have a question regarding selling writings rewritten by A.I.

I saw a YouTube video which showed you can take articles from Google News and use an A.I which rewrites that article and removes traces of plagiarism which then you can sell to other websites which pay you money for each articles. I wanted to ask if this is permissible in Islam?

Thank you.

Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu.

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

We understand that the AI in question takes the content and the information from the article and rewrites it in its own words. This is permissible. You may sell the new work. The revenue generated from this will be permissible.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
