Support for Human Artistry Has Grown to More Than 40 Organizations


An ever-expanding list of more than 40 creative organizations, including music, sports and acting coalitions, has joined the Human Artistry Campaign to promote a list of principles for promoting artificial intelligence in the creative space.

The Human Artistry campaign, first announced at SXSW in Austin at an event dedicated to the potential of artificial intelligence and immersive technologies, outlined principles promoting best practices in the use of artificial intelligence in the creative space. These principles emphasize transparency and compliance with copyright and intellectual property law.

The core principles outlined by the coalition include that the use of copyrighted works for AI training requires authorization, licensing, and compliance with all state and federal laws.
“AI developers must ensure that any content used for educational purposes is approved and licensed by the copyright owner, including content previously used by any pre—trained AI they may implement,” the principles state. “AI should not be exempt from copyright law or other intellectual property laws and should comply with the basic principles of fair market competition and compensation. Creating special labels or legal loopholes for AI will damage creative livelihoods, damage authors’ brands, and limit incentives to create new works and invest in them.”

“Incredible music is created by individuals,” says NMPA President and CEO David Israelite. “As we face the growing possibilities of AI, we, as an industry, unite around the fact that human craftsmanship must be protected by strict copyright law and policy, and that AI tools are designed in a way that does not undermine the value of songwriters’ work.”

Now there are several more names on the list of those who support the Human Artistry Campaign than when the coalition first announced its debut at SXSW. The growing list of organizations currently exceeds 45.
