"Is the work produced by a machine learning system, or even the machine learning system itself, a derivative work of the inputs to the model? (...) if the answer is “no”, GitHub Copilot can be used as a means of washing the GPL off of code you want to use without obeying its license. But, what if the answer is “yes”?"

Greenwashing is very much a thing in corporate sustainability.

Is this the start of 'codewashing'?

@Erik The part about GitHub possibly being in violation actually discourages me. It means that Microsoft will fight all the more vehemently for Copilot to not be in violation with the GPL.
