    So how can anyone own the copyright on music that was generated by a computer?

      I imagine it's the same as any computer assisted art form. Anyone could generate a poem from a random list of words, doing no actual work themselves (other than curation?). But since they'd be the one who published it, they'd get the copyright.

      Until someone designs an AI that's smart enough to compose music and convince the world it should count as a sapient being and win the lawsuit to secure the rights to the song and convince the world not to destroy it out of fear of a full-blown T2: Judgement Day scenario, that's not going to change.

      And let's face it, securing the rights to a pop song is a pretty dumb reason to risk outing yourself as a technological singularity.

    AI can only learn from what is fed to it (at least for now). If you want to beat it, you need to be creative and come up with something new (you know, like an actual artist). If your "talent" is reciting clichés through autotune, then yeah, you should be afraid. The masses that consume your crap don't care much where the crap is coming from.

    So will machines soon be composing symphonies, hit singles and bespoke soundtracks?

    As soon as 2012. This is half spin selling their newest research that is tied with their companies. Some previous reading for anyone looking for a starting point.
