    IMO it’s one thing if you posted things publicly on the internet and it’s getting scraped, in the same way a human would find it.

    But it’s disgusting when all these companies retroactively update their TOS, or force you into zero privacy to continue using their service.

        They were already doing this but now they’re beginning to become afraid of the legal ramifications. Using data like this hasn’t gotten so close to redistribution of Common Law copyrighted work .

        If someone can provide evidence of an AI regurgitating their work verbatim or with no alterations they can be in serious legal trouble. We all have this right, but they have the right to sign a contract with us outlining the terms of the copyright and or granting them a perpetual license to the work. Just remember any work you do for your company isn’t yours but the companies as per the work for hire doctrine.

            Na, just saying in case someone didn’t know. It’s the same with anything. Just don’t use company resources to make a product. That day you end up in court it won’t end well.

      This is the entire issue for me.

      Privatizing what is otherwise public content, and then privatizing the models that are trained on that content and making me pay for having it regurgitated back at me.

      I think AI would be really cool, IF:

      • it wasn’t being shoved into every goddamn thing
      • it wasn’t being used as justification to cut jobs
      • it was a open source project and wasn’t being gatekept by capitalist interests

      How is the latter example different? You think they weren’t scraping your posts this whole time??? Just because they’re telling you now due to ai doesn’t mean they werent scraping B4.
