In the United States, Tennessee Governor Bill Lee signed a law aimed at protecting artists, including musicians, from unauthorized use of their works by artificial intelligence, reports Reuters.

It is the Ensuring Likeness Voice and Image Security Act (ELVIS).

In a statement, the state governor’s office explained that the document updates the law on the protection of personal rights to include the protection of the voices of songwriters, performers, and music industry professionals from misuse by artificial intelligence.

According to the governor’s office, Tennessee’s music industry supports more than 61,617 jobs across the state.

It is known that revolutionary achievements in the field of generative artificial intelligence have raised concerns, including in the music industry. Many experts argue that AI exacerbates legal and ethical issues.

One such example is the song Heart on My Sleeve by artificial intelligence. It appeared last year and increased anxiety in the music world.
