Record Labels Rightly Sue Abusive AI Music Generators

However else one opines on the merits or perils of artificial intelligence (AI), everyone of good faith can agree that it mustn't become a tool for brazen copyright infringement.  Artists who pour their (sometimes literal) blood, sweat and tears into their creative works shouldn't have those works stolen and exploited by AI bots.

A South Dakota man is suing his former employer claiming he was forced to wear an offensive name tag at work.

Caleb Larson says when he arrived at work at Pizza Ranch in Watertown, South Dakota, without his name tag, the owner gave him a name tag that read "braindead." Fearing he might lose his job, Larson says he wore the name tag throughout his shift. Restaurant owner Ross Olson admits giving Larson the name tag, but maintains that Larson never wore it.
