#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 .
@pbx 2/2) I don't have a citation because I'm not citing anybody. Maybe I should rephrase to "That's the M$ way to circumvent copyright law." Since I'm not aware of any precedence case.
However, I must assume that the AI does some sort of statistical and context-aware copy-paste. It can by no way be compared to what a human brain would do.
Then when you process code with a compiler, the binary output is also protected by copyright. That can be compared to what copylot is doing.
