#Github #Copilot gives an idea why #Microsoft paid so much for Github. They were after data: Tons of food for their AI, millions of contributors that now 'work' for MS for free.
You publish your code under GPLv3, even AGPLv3? So what? The AI learns from your code and uses it to generate code that is possibly proprietary. Does #GPL forbid this practice? (I don't think so)
That's the M$ way to break copyright law.
It's time for alternatives like @codeberg .
I’m not a lawyer and I don’t have confidence over my legal understanding of the matter, so I’m just gonna leave these here as some extra argument and discussion on the topic:
@kirschwipfel @Mehrad Yeah true for GPL... Depends on the trigger condition though. For instance AGPL triggers on a user interaction already. I think technically would be possible to create a copyleft licence different from the GPL family which triggers earlier. But that slowly goes out of my area of expertise.
