anyone out there working on variations of copyleft-ish licenses that include provisions for machine learning models trained on the content in question? (i'd personally like to have, e.g., MIT and CC-BY licenses that include a clause like "any model trained on this must also include the attribution")
@aparrish I work on copyright as my job. I highly recommend you read my blog post on GitHub Copilot I wrote some weeks ago (link below!)
@aparrish I'd say licenses already cover that by referring to copying the source or any part of a work of yours.
OK, this isn't legal advice (IANAL and such...) but what I would suggest you to do is to explicitly add in the "training a model" reference to cover your bases. The worst it could happen, IMO, is that it'd be redundant with the general need to attribute your work by using parts of it.
