I am considering using audio soundtracks training data for training a machine learning model. Under this consideration, these audio files are speech excerpts obtained from some TV programs posted on streaming platforms like Youtube. The trained model is able to output sounds quite similar (in terms of style, tonality, etc.) as the training data samples used during model training. By nature of the model, it is possible to produce quite similar results (but not exactly identical) as the training data samples used, when given the right prompt. But these "right prompts" are generally kept hidden from users.
Could anyone explain what are the copyright laws in these situations:
- The output of the trained-model will be used commercially on a website.
- Having a "donation" option to get some support for financing the service such as backend servers. Is this considered "non-commercial" usage and fair-use? Much thanks!
