The No Artificial Intelligence Fake Replicas And Unauthorized Duplications Act, known as the "No AI FRAUD" Act, was officially introduced in the U.S. House on January 10.
This legislative proposal is designed to establish a comprehensive framework regulating the use of artificial intelligence in replicating voices and likenesses.
In support of the No AI FRAUD Act, the Human Artistry Campaign, a coalition of creative industry organizations, has taken a proactive stance.
The campaign boasts an impressive lineup of endorsements from nearly 300 prominent artists, songwriters, and actors such as 21 Savage, Cardi B & Offset, Chuck D, and Nicki Minaj.
The core message of the ad highlights the No AI FRAUD Act's role in defending the fundamental human right to one's voice and likeness.
The No AI FRAUD Act is not an isolated initiative. It draws inspiration from the Senate discussion draft Nurture Originals, Foster Art, and Keep Entertainment Safe Act ("NO FAKES" Act),
The Act was introduced by Representative María Elvira Salazar (R-FL), illustrating a bipartisan approach to tackling the issues surrounding AI voice cloning.
The No AI FRAUD Act empowers artists and U.S. citizens by providing them with the legal tools necessary to protect their rights and creative works.
Endorsements from entities like the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), Universal Music Group, National Music Publishers’ Association (NMPA)
A similar piece of legislation, the Ensuring Likeness Voice and Image Security (ELVIS) Act, was introduced in Tennessee.
