Statement from Sir Lucian Grainge, Chairman & CEO, Universal Music Group in support of the No Artificial Intelligence Fake Replicas And Unauthorized Duplications Act of 2024 (“No AI FRAUD Act”).

“Universal Music Group strongly supports the ‘No AI FRAUD Act’ because no one should be permitted to steal someone else’s image, likeness or voice. While we have an industry-leading track record of enabling AI in the service of artists and creativity, AI that uses their voice or identity without authorization is unacceptable and immoral. We call upon Congress to help put an end to nefarious deepfakes by enacting this federal right of publicity and ensuring that all Americans are protected from such harm.”

Sir Lucian Grainge, Chairman and CEO, Universal Music Group

This bipartisan legislation introduced by Representatives María Elvira Salazar (R-FL-27), Madeleine Dean (D-PA-4), Nathaniel Moran (R-TX-1), Joe Morelle (D-NY-25) and Rob Wittman (R-VA-1) aims to combat abusive AI deepfakes, voice clones, and exploitive digital human impersonations.
