As much of the potential legislation around AI requires reviews of models, groups have begun offering certification programs to AI companies to show how their work doesn’t violate copyright.
Its first accreditation, which it calls the Licensed Model certification, will be awarded to companies that license protected data to train its models. Fairly Trained claims it will not issue the certification to developers that rely on the fair use argument to train models.
Fairly Trained said in a blog post that it has already certified nine generative AI companies that work in image, music, and voice generation. These include Beatoven.ai, Boomy, BRIA.ai, Endel, LifeScore, Rightsify, SOMMS.AI, Soundful, and Tuney.
Some proposed legislation currently making its way through Congress would require AI companies to disclose where they got their training data. The information will let copyright holders know if their work was used without permission.
