Professor Shubha Ghosh Discusses the Music Industry’s Copyright Suit Against the Generative AI Company Anthropic

The music industry’s copyright lawsuit against generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) company Anthropic and its music lyrics chatbot “Claude” is noticeably different from an existing lawsuit from copyright holders against generative AI companies.

In the IPWatchdog article “Latest Copyright Suit against Generative AI Targets Anthropic’s ‘Claude’”, Crandall Melvin Professor Shubha Ghosh, director of the Syracuse Intellectual Property Law Institute says, “An important difference between the two lawsuits is that song lyrics are extensively licensed through existing websites while portions of fictions and non-fictions are readily available through sites modeled on the Google Book Project, which was found to not be infringing.”
