TikTok and UMG in a Dispute Over AI-Generated Music:

Background: TikTok has been using artificial intelligence (AI) to generate music for its users, based on their preferences and tastes.

However, this has sparked a legal conflict with Universal Music Group (UMG), the world’s largest music company, which claims that TikTok is infringing on its copyrights.

UMG’s lawsuit: UMG filed a lawsuit against TikTok and its parent company, ByteDance, in a federal court in Los Angeles on January 31, 2024.

UMG alleges that TikTok is using its songs and lyrics to train its AI models, without obtaining proper licenses or paying fair royalties.

TikTok’s defense: TikTok denies any wrongdoing and argues that its AI-generated music is a form of fair use, as it is transformative and does not compete with the original works.

Implications: The lawsuit could have significant implications for the future of music and AI, as it raises questions about the ownership, creativity, and value of AI-generated content.

Google is Rolling Out New AI Feature for Android:

Background: Google has introduced a new feature for Pixel 8 and 8 Pro users called Circle to Search, which allows them to search anything on their phone screen without switching apps.

How it works: To use Circle to Search, users just need to long press the Pixel home button or navigation bar and select images, text, or videos in whatever way comes naturally to them — like circling, highlighting, scribbling, or tapping. They will then get more information from Search, right where they are.

Benefits: Circle to Search is powered by Google’s AI, which helps users find relevant and useful information in a fast and easy way.

Users can also use multisearch, which combines images and text queries, to ask more complex questions about what they see on their screen.

Availability: Circle to Search is launching globally on select premium Android smartphones on January 31, starting with the Pixel 8, the Pixel 8 Pro, and the new Samsung Galaxy S24 series.

Shopify Launched ‘Magic’ AI Image Editor:

Shopify, the leading e-commerce platform, has launched a new AI-powered image editor that can transform any product photo into a professional-looking one.

The image editor is part of Shopify’s Magic suite of generative AI tools that aim to help merchants create and optimize their online stores.

How it works: The image editor uses generative AI to fill in the missing or unwanted parts of an image, such as the background, the lighting, or the shadows.

Merchants can simply select a theme or a color for their image, and the editor will automatically adjust the photo to match their preferences.

Why it matters: Product images are one of the most important factors for attracting and converting customers online.

Many merchants struggle with taking or editing high-quality product photos, especially if they have large or diverse catalogs.

Shopify’s image editor can help them save time and money, and create consistent and appealing product images across their store.

  2. Access GPTs in the menu bar on the left side of the app — the four currently available are Designer, Vacation Planner, Cooking Assistant, and Fitness Trainer.

  3. Enable plugins by clicking the three-dot options icon at the top right and selecting ‘Plugins’ — you can choose up to three at a time to activate.
