Artificial Intelligence (AI) is changing many things in our lives. Not all of things are good. Some of world's biggest record labels are suing two AI companies over possible copyright infringements. labels include Sony Music, Universal Music Group and Warner Records. They say two AI start-up companies called Suno and Udio are infringing their copyrighted music on " almost unimaginable scale". The labels say AI start-ups have created models to produce music that could "saturate market with machine-generated content". Lawyers for record labels say AI-generated music, "will directly compete with, cheapen and ultimately drown out genuine sound recordings". This could be disaster for artists.

Many AI companies say their software creates content that is protected under copyright law by "fair use doctrine". This is special rule that allows people to reuse copyrighted material legally. Fair use means people can reuse music and written articles for things like news reporting and comedy. Suno CEO Mikey Shulman defended his company. He said: "Our technology is transformative. It is designed to generate completely new output, not to memorize and regurgitate pre-existing content." However, record labels say start-ups have created songs that sound exactly like "Dancing Queen" by ABBA and "My Girl" by The Temptations. The labels want compensation of $150,000 per song from AI start-ups.
