Ed Newton-Rex, the head of the team responsible for developing Stability AI’s AI music generator Stable Audio, has resigned from his post in protest over the company’s use of copyrighted material in training its AI models.

Stability AI is the company behind two of the most advanced tools in generative AI: Stable Audio, which generates music based on instructions provided by the user, and Stable Diffusion, which generates images in the same fashion. Stable Audio was trained on 19,500 hours of music from the content library AudioSparx, obtained through a data access agreement between the two parties.
