#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 .

@t0k while I strongly agree with your sentiment, I disagree with your conclusion: the fact is they could have done it just as easily (and cheaper!) by pulling code from CodeBerg, Gitlab, 0xacab, any other place where any code is publicly available.

The food for their AIs is right there for the taking, whether they own GitHub or not.
