When questioned in regards to the proposal on the press convention, Crabtree-Eire expressed his incredulity, stating:

“Yesterday, they offered us with this so-called ‘groundbreaking’ AI proposal. They prompt that our background performers ought to endure scanning, obtain fee for a single day’s work, and grant possession of that scan, their picture, and their likeness to the studios indefinitely. These studios would then have the appropriate to make the most of this digital illustration with none consent or compensation, on any future venture, for all eternity. In the event that they imagine this can be a groundbreaking proposal, I counsel they reevaluate their perspective.”

SAG-AFTRA President Fran Drescher emphasised the urgency of the state of affairs in her opening assertion, warning, “If we fail to take a agency stand now, we are going to all face dire penalties. Our very existence is at stake, as we danger being changed by machines.”
