Famous Musicians Want To Stop AI - Generated Music

Hundreds of musicians have joined with the Artist Rights Alliance (ARA) to condemn the excessive use of  Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the music industry. In an open letter organised by campaign group the Artists' Rights Alliance say AI will "infringe upon our rights and devalue the rights of human artists" if it is used irresponsibly.

American singer Billie Eilish, Katy Perry, Elvis Costello, and UK star Engelbert Humperdinck are among 200 artists calling for the "predatory" use of AI in the music industry to be stopped, due to concerns that this AI will replace human artists and ‘substantially dilute’ royalty pools.

They claim the way that artists' work is used to train some AI models and systems was "an assault on human creativity", and warned it was being used to "violate creators' rights, and destroy the music ecosystem".

Tom Kiehl, interim head of industry association UK Music, said he shared the concerns of artists who worry their work is being used to train AI without their permission. "This amounts to music laundering and any companies engaged in these practices must stop and take a more responsible approach to our music industry," he said. 

"Ensuring artists have given their consent and receive appropriate credit and compensation for the use of their work on AI systems must be the foundation to a more responsible approach."

Artists spanning creative disciplines and genres have spoken out about how AI is used in recent months, after a song which used AI to mimic the voices of Drake and The Weeknd went viral online.

Other artists have since spoken out about it, with Sting saying he believes musicians face "a battle" to defend their work against the rise of songs written by AI. "The building blocks of music belong to us, to human beings," he said.

But not all musicians oppose developments in or use of AI across the music industry, and electronic artist Grimes and DJ David Guetta are among those backing the use of such AI tools.

Other creative sectors have taken action in response to concerns about AI.

Last year, thousands of writers signed a letter written by the Authors Guild, which called on the likes of OpenAI, Alphabet and Meta to stop using their work to train AI models without “consent, credit or compensation”.

The New York Time is currently engaged is a high stakes  lawsuit against OpenAI and Microsoft, in a claim that AI chatbots made by these companies, including the popular ChatGPT, are trained on millions of articles published by the US media outlet.
