Human Artistry Campaign Advocates for AI Best Practices

More than 40 groups representing writers, artists, performers, and more have launched the Human Artistry Campaign, laying out seven principles that ensure artificial intelligence technologies can support, rather than replace or erode, "human artistry." Member groups include the Association of American Publishers and the Authors Guild. 

The Human Artistry Campaign's core principles are: 

  1. Technology has long empowered human expression, and AI will be no different.
  2. Human-created works will continue to play an essential role in our lives. 
  3. Use of copyrighted works, and use of the voices and likenesses of professional performers, requires authorization, licensing, and compliance with all relevant state and federal laws.
  4. Governments should not create new copyright or other IP exemptions that allow AI developers to exploit creators without permission or compensation.
  5. Copyright should only protect the unique value of human intellectual creativity.
  6. Trustworthiness and transparency are essential to the success of AI and protection of creators. 
  7. Creators’ interests must be represented in policymaking. 

Supporters can sign a petition to advance these principles here.
