What’s up? Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Music Group, and others filed lawsuits against AI music generation companies Suno and Udio.

Want the details? Suno and Udio recently released AI systems that enable users to generate songs from text prompts. Coordinated by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), the lawsuits were filed in U.S. federal courts in Massachusetts and New York. The music labels allege that these AI services require copying vast amounts of copyrighted sound recordings to train their models. The lawsuits seek to halt the alleged infringements and secure damages. Representatives for Suno and Udio have not yet commented.

“Unlicensed services like Suno and Udio that claim it’s ‘fair’ to copy an artist’s life’s work and exploit it for their own profit without consent or pay set back the promise of genuinely innovative AI for us all.”

-Mitch Glazier, Chairman and CEO, Recording Industry Association of America

Why is this significant? These lawsuits underscore the copyright issues surrounding training data for AI models. To understand more about this issue, read our long-form article which outlines these copyright concerns.

Once again, we may have found ourselves in too deep with deepfakes. 👀

What’s happening? In February, Meta announced it would begin labeling photos created with AI tools on its social networks. However, it has recently been tagging authentic photos as “Made with AI.”

Want some examples? The Kolkata Knight Riders, a cricket team, recently won the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 cricket tournament. The team’s social media page posted a picture of the players holding up their championship trophy. This photo was deemed by Meta as “Made with AI.” This is just one example of many that are emerging across Meta’s platforms. Artists and photographers, in particular, are becoming incredibly frustrated with Meta as their work is being flagged as “Made with AI.” One upset artist stated, “Nobody understands how to avoid it.”

What is Meta doing about it? This issue underscores how complicated AI content detection truly is and the predicament we find ourselves in, especially as our social media channels get continually flooded with AI images, text, and videos. In response to the instances of mislabeling images, Meta has issued a statement of apology and commitment to improving its system, but at the end of the day, it might be broken beyond repair.

“Our intent has always been to help people know when they see content that has been made with AI. We are taking into account recent feedback and continue to evaluate our approach so that our labels reflect the amount of AI used in an image.”



I got an email yesterday that showed me how to read maps backwards. Turns out, it was just “spam.” 🗺️

What’s going on? Google is beginning to roll out some of its new Gemini features in Gmail, but only to paid users.

What are the new features? A newly introduced Gemini side panel on Gmail will offer the ability to summarize email threads and draft new emails. Powered by Gemini 1.5 Pro, it offers “proactive prompts” and also allows for “freeform questions,” helping users interact with emails seamlessly. Google is also rolling out Gemini-powered features to the side panel in Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Drive. These will make the platforms much easier to use, as they will offer features that anticipate the needs of the user, provide valuable insights, and respond to natural language prompts. For now, these features will only be available to paid Gemini and Workspace users, but within the next year, these updates should be freely available to the public.
