AI & Synthetic Voices

As we move further into the next industrial revolution with the rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI), we have learned that this affects the voiceover world as well. Voices have been cloned and altered  for newly created projects without the original talent’s consent and knowledge and companies with nefarious practices will continue to exploit voices into the future. As a voice talent, it’s my job to protect myself and other voice actors from these practices. 

 

Here are my policies regarding that matter. These are non-negotiable.

  • Client expressly agrees not to utilize any portion of the recording or performance of Talent for purposes other than those specified in the initial Agreement between the parties including but not limited to creation of synthetic voices or for machine learning.

  • Specifically, Client shall not utilize any recording or performance of Talent to simulate Talent’s voice or likeness, or to create any synthesized or “digital double” voice or likeness of Talent. 

  • Client specifically agrees not to sell or transfer ownership of all or part of any of the recordings or performance of Talent to any third party without Talent’s knowledge and consent.

 

  • Client agrees not to enter into any agreements or contracts on behalf of Talent which utilizes all or any part of any of the recordings or performance of Talent without Talent’s knowledge and consent.

 

  • Client agrees that any recordings or performances stored in digital format will be reasonably stored so that unauthorized third parties may not gain access to the files containing Talent’s voice or likeness, and if such files are stored in “the cloud.” Client agrees to safeguard the same through encryption or other “up-to date” technological means.

 

Thank you for understanding. I appreciate it.
