The family went to court after an AI-generated “interview” with Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher.

It is now clear that they have won and will receive compensation of 200,000 euros (2.3 million kroner), Reuters reported.

Schumacher suffered serious head injuries in a skiing accident in France at Christmas 2013, and has not appeared in public since. He is now 55 years old.

Anne Hoffmann, editor-in-chief of German weekly magazine Die Aktuelle, has been fired after she published an alleged interview with Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher, based on artificial intelligence.

“International Sensation” and “First Interview” were the headlines of Die Aktuelle on the front page with a photo of Michael Schumacher. Artificial intelligence (AI), or artificial intelligence in Norwegian, was used. This was in April 2023.

Schumacher's family immediately filed a lawsuit.

Now a family spokesperson confirms their victory in court.

Michael Schumacher's condition is unknown. His wife, Corinna, was always clear that it would not be made public. A number of media outlets reported that Schumacher resides on the family farm in Switzerland, where he is undergoing medical follow-up.

The title on the cover gave the impression that the interview was real, while the text itself explained that the answers were generated by artificial intelligence.

Son Mick Schumacher visited Formula 1, but is now a reserve driver.
