Episode 2 with Ryan Kairalla: Melodies in the Machine: Legal Landmines of AI-Generated Music

On episode 2 of The Cyber PR Music Podcast AI Season we dive into the world of AI-Generated content and creativity.

The music industry is facing a new challenge that requires attention from lawyers and lawmakers to create new laws that fit the existing landscape and address the rise of AI. However, the potential of AI in the music industry is enormous, allowing artists to create work more easily and more effectively.

First, we discuss the legal challenges surrounding AI-generated content after the much covered AI debacle with fake Drake and The Weeknd, causing DSPs to take down the song. Then, we explore how AI, specifically Chat GPT, can help creators with the tedious and less enjoyable parts of content creation, such as writing blog posts or generating musical ideas.

Ryan emphasizes how AI can help save time and allow for more human-oriented creativity, but we must ensure human involvement to prevent AI from pushing fans away. We also discuss AI collabs with artists and the importance of being transparent with fans about AI’s use in the creative process. Tune in to discover the exciting possibilities of AI in the music industry from the perspective of an entertainment attorney.
