Tweet of the Day, Who Gets Sued? edition.

Because if this post is true, somebody’s getting sued.

Via @wastelandJD. If money is changing hands, then there is an established value for the product. IANAL, but I’m pretty sure that whoever generated that audio file did not acquire the rights for the songs that were scraped to make it*. Whoever sold it to Warner should be sue-able. Again, IANAL.

What a fascinating time to be alive.

*Assuming that the song was made via AI, that is. If that’s a real person, then this isn’t an “AI pop singer” at all.

  1. Unless part of the song is actually lifted (which is totally possible), it should be fine.
    All music is derivative.
    And pop music, especially so.

    The issue comes when they try to enforce the copyright against someone else.
