Suno and Udio Face Copyright Lawsuit – AI Music in Hot Water

suno and udio face copyright lawsuit

AI music generators Suno and Udio are facing lawsuits from major record labels alleging copyright infringement.

The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), which represents the interests of the recording industry, filed lawsuits against both companies in June 2024.

The lawsuits claim that Suno and Udio trained their AI models on a massive dataset of copyrighted music without permission. This, the RIAA argues, infringes on the rights of artists and record labels. The labels are seeking compensation of up to $150,000 per infringed track.

Suno and Udio have defended themselves by saying that their technology creates original music and doesn’t simply copy existing songs. Suno’s CEO Mikey Shulman claims they tried to have a “good faith discussion” with the labels, but to no avail.

This lawsuit marks a significant challenge to the development of AI music generation technology. The outcome of this case could set a precedent for how AI can be used to create music in the future.
