It's The End Of Music As We Know It, and AI Don't Mind Featured

Written by

The Recording Industry is up in arms again, this time, alleging that two companies using AI to generate music, are illegally using copyrighted material.

The lawsuit was filed in federal court this week in Boston, by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), representing record labels including Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music Group and Warner Records, against Suno AI and Udio AI.

This lawsuit is just the latest in a series of AI-related legal actions, such as that of a group of eight newspapers suing Open AI, the maker of Chat GPT, and Microsoft for allegedly "purloining millions" of copyrighted news articles, prominent authors, such as John Grisham and Elin Hilderbrand suing Open AI and Meta, and even last year's big actors strike in Hollywood, that was related in part to concerns about generative AI eliminating their jobs.

With all that in play, I thought it would be a good idea to bring in a technology expert who can provide some insight into how AI is not only affecting the lives and livelihoods of musicians, but also; how it could affect creators of all types.

So, let's get into it now, with former CNET Editor and current CBS News Contributor, Ian Sherr. He's our special guest on This Week in Tech with Jeanne Destro.
