If @GitHub (Microsoft) truly believes copilot isn't infringing on anyone's work, I want to offer them a chance to prove it: I'll donate $50k to a charity of their choice (or @EFF if we can't agree) if they release a Copilot version trained solely on Windows kernel source. 1/
Hi. I know you’re excited about copilot. GitHub scraped your code. And they plan to charge you for copilot after you help train it further. It’s truly disappointing to watch people cheer at having their work and time exploited by a company worth billions.

I can't pony up $50K but I will commit to $1337 if this happens before October 1 (or there is good faith actions that it will happen.).

If the terms were a wager (Microsoft pays me - or a charity - if they fail to deliver) I'd be in for $25k. That said, I suspect @MalwareJake's money is safe.
