Our Select Committee continues to think & consider deeply about users' rights in the advent of AI Programming Assistance Software, such as machine learning models trained on large codebases. More in the recent committee minutes: lists.copyleft.org/pipermail/a

Does "Copilot" claim ownership of its contributed code to Github/Microsoft? Or is it regarded as "public domain"/"non-copyleft+free"?

ISTM that the process of AI generation might be regarded as diluting, in the same way that a person who "learns programming" does not have their output bound by the license of the code examples they learned from.

Yet unlike the student programmer, the AI is not a legal person to whom a new copyright would adhere.

@conservancy

"Perhaps that which cannot be easily attributed to a single source should be regarded as public property" is a sound principle for such things.

There is a similar debate around AI generated art (MidJourney, Craiyon...) currently, which I think raises the same issues of authorship and license.
