Human Artistry Campaign welcomes Joe Biden's AI executive order

The music industry-led Human Artistry Campaign has welcomed a wide-ranging executive order issued by US President Joe Biden yesterday that puts in place an assortment of measures in a bid to ensure the "safe, secure and trustworthy development and use of artificial intelligence".

Biden himself called the executive order "the most significant action any government anywhere in the world has ever taken on AI safety, security and trust".

It instructs various US government departments to step up their efforts in regulating different aspects of AI. Among many other things, it touches on the copyright and transparency concerns that have been raised by the creative industries.

For example, the Department Of Commerce is given the task of developing standards for watermarking and clearly labelling AI-generated content. And the US Copyright Office - which has already instigated a consultation on AI - will advise the President on "potential executive actions relating to copyright and AI", including in relation to "the scope of protection for works produced using AI and the treatment of copyrighted works in AI training".

Commenting on the executive order, the Human Artistry Campaign said yesterday: “The inclusion of copyright and intellectual property protection in the AI executive order reflects the importance of the creative community and IP-powered industries to America's economic and cultural leadership".

"On behalf of over 170 members spanning the creative and technology communities", it went on, "the Human Artistry Campaign applauds this effort to craft a responsible, ethical AI policy that will promote innovation and allow both AI and human creativity to strengthen each other and thrive".
