Universal Music Group and other music publishers have filed a lawsuit against artificial intelligence (AI) company Anthropic. The lawsuit claims that Anthropic’s AI model, Claude 2, distributes copyrighted lyrics without permission. The music publishers state that Claude 2 generates lyrics that are almost identical to popular songs like Katy Perry’s “Roar” and the Rolling Stones’ “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” They also allege that Claude 2 produces lyrics similar to existing songs even when not asked to recreate them. The complaint argues that Anthropic omits critical copyright management information and fails to implement effective measures to prevent copyright infringement. The plaintiffs argue that Anthropic used copyrighted material to train its language models. Copyright infringement has become a contentious issue in generative AI, with lawsuits filed against other platforms in relation to protected data and copyrighted art. Universal Music Group has expressed its intention to work with companies like Google on AI issues. Anthropic states that it takes trust and safety seriously and bases its principles on “constitutional AI,” which involves training AI systems to follow a set of rules. Amazon has invested $4 billion in Anthropic, and Google has also invested $300 million.
