The Artists Rights Alliance, with support from artists like Katy Perry, Billie Eilish and Nicki Minaj, has issued an open letter urging digital music developers to refrain from using artificial intelligence to undermine human artists’ rights. AI-generated musical works without permission threaten artists’ livelihoods and diminish the music ecosystem. Some technology platforms employ AI to imitate human artists and produce music without their knowledge or consent. Other notable signatories to the letter include Sam Smith, Jon Bon Jovi, Camila Cabello and Pearl Jam. While recognizing AI’s potential for creativity, artists seek to prevent its misuse in music creation.
