AI generates new Beatles music, music studios file copyright claimstext_fields
There is a set of new Beatles songs in circulation but the band members had nothing to do with it. Artificial Intelligence has created and reimagined some songs from the Beatles member's solo songs with some alterations. While fans are happy, music studios are not.
An AI creator Dae Lims has re-united the Fab Four on songs from their solo careers, re-imagined surviving member Paul McCartney's later works with his voice from younger days, and new creations.
Many fans found the songs to be beautiful and emotional. The enhanced audio quality and orchestral arrangement have made these songs an experience.
These are one of the many AI covers on the internet at the moment. Universal Music Group has already begun asserting copyright claims and some songs have already been taken down from streaming platforms.
The legal course to deal with this trend is not easy because AI creators can argue it falls under "fair use" citing a 2015 court ruling that said Google was permitted to archive the world's books because it wasn't competing with sellers and was displaying only snippets.
However, the US Supreme Court last month ruled that a Warhol print of the late pop star Prince violated the copyright of the photographer who took the original image.
