A group of around 200 music artists, including Billie Eilish, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, Camila Cabello and many others, have signed an open letter to artificial intelligence (AI) developers and technology companies. The letter calls on them to refrain from using AI technology to violate or devalue the rights of human artists. The Artists’ Rights Alliance (ARA), a non-profit organization that advocates for artists’ rights, shared the letter with support from big names in the music industry.

The letter highlights two major trends involving the illegal use of songs by AI companies: the training and production of AI imitators and the dilution of royalty obligations through algorithms. Voice cloning is also mentioned as a threat, as AI technology can be used to transform songs into ones that sound like a human artist without being one. The unethical use of generative artificial intelligence to replace human artists will devalue the entire music ecosystem for both artists and fans.

Other signatories to the letter include Sam Smith, HIBE, Jon Bon Jovi, Norah Jones, Pearl Jam, REM, Chuck D and Kate Hudson. In October 2023, three major music labels sued an AI company for copyright infringement, further underscoring the importance of protecting artists’ rights in the digital age. Hollywood actors have also launched a strike in July 2023 to address concerns about the impact of artificial intelligence on their industry.
