The Songwriters Guild of America thanks Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Josh Hawley (R-MO) for introducing the, “No Section 230 Immunity for AI Act.” The bill would clarify that Section 230 immunity will not apply to claims based on generative AI. This will ensure that consumers have the tools and freedom they need to individually protect themselves and their children from harmful content produced by the latest advancements in AI technology. The bill would also allow authors and other creators to sue companies in federal or state court for harm by generative AI models.
