I’d love to see the copyright law evolve to accommodate some of this while still honoring living rights holders. You could imagine a system not unlike existing streaming services that would pay royalties out of some superfund that the model providers collect such that prompts using particular artists by name (e.g. “write me a song in the style of Taylor Swift”, etc) would pay at prompt time (like a stream) and embed a credit into the result in case the generated material goes on to commercial release and generates additional revenue. Also would provide some nuance for prompts that are not calling an artist out by name. Then the prompting becomes part of the art.
