A little more than two months since the estate of the comedy genius took the creators of an AI generated special that uses Carlin’s style and voice to court, the parties have settled. “Defendants are hereby PERMANENTLY RESTRAINED AND ENJOINED FROM uploading, posting or broadcasting the Dudesy Special on the Dudesy Podcast, or in any content posted to any website, account or platform (including, without limitation, YouTube and social media websites) controlled by Defendants,” a proposed injunction order submitted Tuesday in federal court from both sides says. “Defendants are hereby PERMANENTLY RESTRAINED AND ENJOINED FROM using George Carlin’s image, voice or likeness on the Dudesy Podcast, or in any content posted to any website, account or platform (including, without limitation, YouTube and social media websites) controlled by Defendants without the express written approval of the Plaintiffs,” the filing adds against defendants Will Sasso and Chad Kultgen.

In point of fact, Sasso and Kultgen took down the offending digital special on January 31, six days after the Carlin estate sued them.
