10th December 2023 – IFPI has today issued this statement about the EU AI Act trilogue agreement:
“The trilogue agreement for this important, first-of-its-kind legislation provides a constructive and encouraging framework.
“AI offers creators both opportunities and risks, and we believe there is a path to a mutually successful outcome for both the creative and technology communities. Success requires guardrails – public policies that enable and require responsible AI.
“While technical details are not yet finalised, this agreement makes clear that essential principles – such as meaningful transparency obligations and respect of EU copyright standards for any GPAI model that operates in the internal market – must be fully reflected in the final legislation and its concrete application if we are to achieve our mutual goals.
“We look forward to working with the EU co-legislators as the process continues at a technical level.”
