The European Visual Artists Manifesto on AI

    DACS, together with a number of Collective Management Organisations for visual artists, signed a manifesto, drafted by the European Visual Artists, outlining how to ensure that AI develops in a responsible and humane way.

    Some of the key points mentioned were: 
    - Copyright as a fundamental right to property as provided for by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the EU Charter of fundamental rights
    - Transparency in letting artists know if and how their works are used
    - The importance of prior consent and fair remuneration
    - The need to stop the expansion of copyright exceptions
    - Llicensing solutions offered by CMOs
