Maybe it is time for a #floss license that forbids automatic analysis of code.

Problematic for linting and similar tools, but I bet there's a way around that. Something like "if the data retrieved from an automatic analysis is stored, that's for bidden" or something like that.

@musicmatze Hmm, I think prohibiting certain use cases (like analysis) is hard to get right. I.e. I think something like this would often lead you to restrict things you actually want to allow or allow things you really want to restrict.

Maybe a copyright reform is needed that defines how the copyright of input data affects the copyright of machine-generated outputs? Though that also opens a whole other can of worms ...

@musicmatze If we ever get to the point where machines can generate content on a human level, basically the whole concept of copyright breaks down. Just like the concept of capitalism will, if a large part of the labor force can be replaced by machines without simultaneously generating sufficient replacement jobs.

@musicmatze Given that we don't reach a plateau w.r.t AI research soon, I think it's going to be interesting to see how our legal systems/our societies will adapt to advances in AI that raise similar issues.
