The House of Representatives wants faster action against music theft by artificial intelligence applications

Noos News

A majority of MPs want the Cabinet to take further action against the use of Dutch artists’ voices and texts by artificial intelligence. This is clear from the survey advertisement About this issue.

Artists are very concerned about AI (artificial intelligence) providers who can create songs in the artist’s voice and in the same style without the artist’s permission. Anyone using an AI app like Suno or Udio can create a song using existing artists’ voices in half a minute.

Herman van Veen tells the newspaper that he is very worried about this and fears that it is already too late. “I’m afraid AI is smarter than us.” According to Van Veen, “The time has come to put legislation and regulations on the ground like lightning, and at that time I even sang in… Hilversum III “But everyone has their own voice.” The truth will remain.

Not the end of time

National Security Council Rep. Jesse Six Dykstra agrees that the House is relatively late in taking action against these AI models, but “we are not on the cutting edge.” In the Radio NOS 1 News Dijkstra says it’s a bad idea to “use their music without permission and/or compensation to the artist.”

Previously, members of the Dawn Brothers band from Rotterdam said they were concerned about the rise of artificial intelligence:

Artificial intelligence creates music within a minute and that’s what this band is all about

The Digital Services Law came into force last summer. This law should limit the power of major internet companies and require platforms to intervene in illegal content. Until this law is translated into national legislation, artists cannot take a stance against AI applications.

Minister of Digital Affairs

GroenLinks-Pvda believes that there is still “very little interest in digital matters”. In the announcement, MP Barbara Katman called for a Minister of Digital Affairs to be appointed to address problems in this area. National Security Council member Dykstra also calls for a future secretary with specialized knowledge. He added: “Whether he is a minister or a minister of state, these are matters now on the formation table.”

GroenLinks-PvdA and the NSC are not alone in their belief that legislation should be accelerated. Many other parties join this, such as VVD, SP, Volt, SGP and BBB. “The Netherlands is very slow and artists suffer from this,” Sandra Beckerman (SP) told AD.
