Major record labels sue AI company behind ‘BBL Drizzy’

Major record labels are suing AI companies Suno and Udio for copyright infringement over music created using their AI tools.

: Major record labels have filed lawsuits against AI companies Suno and Udio for copyright infringement. The RIAA claims these companies used copyrighted songs without permission to develop their AI models. The legal actions highlight the growing tension between the music industry and AI technology providers.

Major record labels, including Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, and Warner Records, have initiated legal proceedings against AI companies Suno and Udio. They allege that these companies have engaged in widespread copyright infringement by using text prompts to create music tracks that mimic copyrighted songs.

The lawsuits, filed by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), seek damages of up to $150,000 per infringed work along with additional fees. The RIAA claims that both Suno and Udio have used copyrighted songs without proper authorization to train their AI models, resulting in outputs that closely resemble existing music.

This legal action underscores the growing conflict between the traditional music industry and emerging AI technologies. Suno and Udio's AI-generated music has drawn significant scrutiny, raising broader questions about how AI might impact the rights of musicians and the future landscape of the music industry.
