Global digital music service provider, Spotify, has announced plans to take actions against AI-Generated music with fake streams.
This streaming platform disclosed this on it’s official Twitter handle on Tuesday.
Spotify recently took action against AI-generated music with unauthorised plays, focusing on tracks made by Boomy, a programme that employs artificial intelligence to construct complete songs.
Recently, the topic of AI-generated music has gathered steam after well-known producer Timbaland posted a tune on his social media accounts that he made utilising AI-generated vocals from the late Notorious B.I.G. Even though it was done using AI technology, he expressed his enthusiasm over getting to work with Biggie.
Spotify stated, “Artificial streaming is a longstanding, industry-wide issue that we are working to stamp out across our service.
“When we identify or are alerted to potential cases of stream manipulation, we mitigate their impact by taking action that may include the removal of streaming numbers and the withholding of royalties.
“This allows us to protect royalty payouts for honest, hardworking artists.”
The removal of songs created by AI that had phoney streams by Spotify is a strong indication that the service is committed to tackling the problem of artificial streaming.
