A Collaboration of 200 Artists including Billie Eilish and Nicki Minaj Speak Out Against AI’s Threat

On Tuesday, more than 200 musical artists, including Billie Eilish, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, Camila Cabello and many others, published an open letter urging technology companies to refrain from using AI to infringe on the rights of human artists. The letter was supported by the Artist Rights Alliance (ARA), a non-profit organization that advocates for artists’ rights.

The artists are calling on digital music platforms and music-based services to pledge not to develop or deploy AI music generation technology that undermines the human artistry of songwriters and artists or denies them fair compensation for their work. They are also concerned about two trends involving the illicit use of songs by AI companies: training and producing AI copycats, and diluting royalty obligations through algorithms.

Voice cloning is also a major concern as AI technology can be used to transform songs into ones that sound like a human artist without actually being one. The letter emphasizes that the unethical use of generative AI to replace human artists will devalue the entire musical ecosystem for both artists and fans.

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