Netflix Demands to Copyright Voice of Popular Celebs and it Has Internet Rattled

One of the world’s most famous streaming services, Netflix has created a buzz among internet users with its recent demand to copyright the voices of popular celebrities. The news has left people rattled and questioning the company’s motives. With the rise of deep fake technology, many are concerned that this move may have bad consequences.

With this move, Netflix will be able to create content using artificial intelligence. This could possibly be one of the biggest changes that the entertainment industry will witness. However, celebrities should be worried about their jobs as artificial intelligence can do the job of an actor.

Netflix demanded to copyright voices of popular celebrities


Netflix hit the headlines when it announced its intention to copyright the voices of popular celebrities in its shows and movies. This move would give the company exclusive rights to use the voices in any form of media, including commercials and other promotional material.

As per the contract, Netflix will use an actor’s voice “by all technologies and processes now known or hereafter developed throughout the universe and in perpetuity.” The celebrities in question would not be able to use their own voices for commercial purposes without Netflix’s permission, essentially making their voices the property of the streaming giant.

This move may have some advantages, fans will be able to see their favorite deceased artist on screen once again. With the help of AI, it is very easy to recreate a deceased person’s voice.

But this is not seen as a positive move as many are concerned about the future of entertainment. As technology continues to advance, it’s likely that we will see more attempts to manipulate audio and video content using AI.

Celebrities will soon have trouble finding work as AI will be able to do everything they do in less time. The move could lead to new regulations and laws limiting the use of deep fake technology and other forms of audio and video manipulation. It could also lead to changes in the way that celebrities negotiate contracts with studios and networks, with a greater focus on protecting their own rights and interests.
