gives an idea why 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 forbid this practice? (I don't think so)

That's the M$ way to break copyright law.

It's time for alternatives like @codeberg .


@t0k I don't think that the licence chosen by the developer has anything to do with that as I'm quite sure there's some clause in Github's Terms of Use allowing something like that.

@pixelcode I'm afraid of that too. Would be good to find out actually.
The question is: What is stronger in court? The abusive Terms of Use backed by $$ or peoples intellectual property rights?

@t0k When creating a GitHub account the user accepts those terms so Microsoft would most likely win 😐
