The 2 Problems Facing Linux (and Open Source) in 2020 | Bryan Lunduke on Patreon

1) Influence (and control) over Open Source institutions by organizations and companies who are, in most areas of their business, opposed to Open Source.

2) Influence (and control) of Open Source projects, institutions, and communities by those seeking to harm others.

What comes next?

If I had to make a prediction for 2020, based on the increasing activities over the last couple years… I would say that things will only accelerate and intensify with both of the issues I call out here.

    GitHub Copilot’s use of GPL code for training is not infringement; adopting a maximalist copyright stance will ultimately hurt the Free Software community

    GitHub Copilot is not infringing your copyright

    GitHub is currently causing a lot of commotion in the Free Software scene with its release of Copilot. Copilot is an artificial intelligence trained on publicly available source code and texts. It produces code suggestions to programmers in real time. Since Copilot also uses the numerous GitHub repositories under copyleft licences such as the GPL as training material, some commentators accuse GitHub of copyright infringement, because Copilot itself is not released under a copyleft licence, but is to be offered as a paid service after a test phase. The controversy touches on several thorny copyright issues at once. What is astonishing about the current debate is that the calls for the broadest possible interpretation of copyright are now coming from within the Free Software community.
