By now you've probably seen the viral Pixar AI pet posters that have been taking the internet by storm, using Microsoft's Bing Image Creator to make faux movie posters starring our furry friends. The trend has become so popular that it's recently caught the eye of Disney, for all the wrong reasons.

The problem is that Bing's AI-generated images are a little too good, causing the House of Mouse to raise copyright concerns – but Microsoft has found a way to keep the trend alive.  (If you love Pixar's iconic art style, check out our collection of the best character design books for more inspiration).
