As technology continues to advance at an unprecedented pace, the music industry faces both exciting opportunities and overwhelming challenges.
While it is true that emerging technologies like AI hold immense potential for revolutionizing the world of music, we must ensure that they don’t undermine the hard work and creativity of composers and songwriters. Recently, concerns have been raised that some applications of AI could actually devalue the contributions of human music creators, which is a troubling trend.
Fortunately, organizations like ASCAP have been vigilant in ensuring that new technologies are properly licensed in order to protect the rights of creators.
ASCAP’s leadership is deeply committed to putting people first, and their collaborative approach has already yielded initial policies that prioritize the needs of music creators. It is clear that we must keep pushing for more transparent, ethical ways of implementing AI that work in tandem with creators, rather than against them.
By partnering with organizations like ASCAP and contacting elected officials, we can ensure that we maintain a thriving, innovative music industry that values human agency and ingenuity.
