On Friday, February 2, a U.K. House of Lords committee released a report urging ministers to protect those in creative industries from AI companies. The report called for a “suite of measures including a way for rightsholders to check training data for copyright breaches, investment in new datasets to encourage tech firms to pay for licensed content, and a requirement for tech firms to declare what their web crawlers are being used for.” The committee also called on lawmakers to promote open competition in the AI space so large players don’t become monopolies in the burgeoning industry.
