Manatt Entertainment Leader Jordan Bromley and Partners Nathaniel Bach and Sarah Moses were featured in Insider following their recent webinar, “Keeping it Real: Fake Drake and the Legal Implications of AI-Created Music,” in which they explored the implications surrounding the use of generative artificial intelligence (AI) in the production of copyrighted music. The article, “The AI playbook music lawyers are creating to protect artists, from pressuring streamers like Spotify to invoking the right of publicity,” highlighted the speakers’ strategies for how to protect clients, such as using existing technology to detect and enforce copyright protections. It went on to provide four key takeaways on the legal and business challenges of AI in music, including:
- Understanding AI training models will be important for enforcing copyright law
- Right of publicity may play an important role in AI legal cases
- Streaming platforms like Spotify and YouTube will play a big role in AI's future
