The No AI FRAUD Act
The No AI Fake Replicas & Unauthorized Duplications Act is a landmark piece of bipartisan legislation establishing safeguards to protect against generative AI abuses that stem from the unauthorized copying of a person’s individuality and result in deepfakes, voice clones, and non-consensual impersonations.

“The most unique and foundational aspects of any person’s individuality should never be misappropriated or used without consent. We applaud Representatives Salazar and Dean’s forward-thinking No AI FRAUD Act as a massive step forward in protecting people, culture and art – while also urging other policymakers to follow their lead to shield us all from voice, image and likeness manipulation.
Timely action is critical as irresponsible AI platforms are being used to launch deepfake and voice impersonation models depicting individuals doing and saying things they never have or would. This not only has the potential to harm these artists, their livelihoods and reputations, but also degrades societal trust. There has never been a more important time for our leaders to demand responsible and ethical AI that works for people – not against them.”

The No AI FRAUD Act is a meaningful step towards building a safe, responsible, and ethical AI ecosystem, and the RIAA applauds Representatives Salazar, Dean, Moran, Morelle, and Wittman for leading in this important area. To be clear, we embrace the use of AI to offer artists and fans new creative tools that support human creativity. But putting in place guardrails like the No AI FRAUD Act is a necessary step to protect individual rights, preserve and promote the creative arts, and ensure the integrity and trustworthiness of generative AI. As decades of innovation have shown, when Congress establishes strong IP rights that foster market-led solutions, it results in both driving innovation and supporting human expression and partnerships that create American culture.

Artists spend years, sometimes decades, meticulously crafting a brand with their labels to connect with fans. Permitting AI firms to profit from imitated artist voices undermines the core principle of copyright: to reward the risk-takers who promote the progress of the arts. This proposal is timely and addresses a significant void

“AI will unequivocally play a role in shaping the future of the music industry, and it is of the utmost importance that we work together to protect the rights of music creators everywhere as the technology develops. I applaud this effort by members of Congress to support the creative community.”
CEO, Latin Recording Academy
“Without smart regulation, AI technology poses risks to individuals and intellectual property rights. We applaud the introduction of the No AI FRAUD Act. It’s essential for the public to get involved and advocate. Let’s ensure AI technology remains a tool for humans and not a means of human exploitation.”
National President, SAG-AFTRA
The music industry is the tip of the spear in the fight against unauthorized generative AI. Every day, music artists are being exploited as their creative works are harvested, manipulated, and repackaged without consent, credit, or compensation. The No AI FRAUD Act will create a federal property right for likeness and voice while providing real penalties for companies and individuals who attempt to steal and profit off the intellectual property of music creators.

Artists’ voices and likenesses are the foundations of their careers. The ability to protect these fundamental elements of individuality is crucial to artists’ livelihoods and the integrity of their work, and we thank Representatives Salazar, Dean, Moran, Morelle, and Wittman for taking the threat that generative AI clones and deepfakes pose seriously and working to protect the human beings behind the music and art we love.
Executive Director, Artist Rights Alliance
As AI rapidly evolves and impacts our creative spaces, it’s crucial that Congress recognizes human creativity as the center of the musical process. We are grateful to Reps. Salazar, Dean, Moran, Morelle, and Wittman for working to protect the voice and visual likeness of artists, performers, and songwriters from being replicated and exploited without consent. We look forward to working alongside our nation's leaders to ensure that music can continue to thrive in this new era of technological advancement.

“AI deepfakes and voice cloning threaten the integrity of all music. Music creators face enough forces working to devalue their work – technology that steals their voice and likeness should not be one of them.”

“While AI holds great potential for the creation of music, it also poses significant risks. BMI applauds the bipartisan sponsors of the No AI FRAUD Act for recognizing the possible harm unauthorized AI deepfakes and clones can cause to songwriters, composers, and artists. Music creators and the value of their work must be protected, and this legislation is an important step toward safeguarding their essential contributions to the industry.”
