Dear Ruben Safir,

Microsoft GitHub's announcement of an AI-driven Service as a Software
Substitute (SaaSS)

program called Copilot -- which uses machine learning to autocomplete
code (even very large portions of code) for developers as they write
software -- immediately raised serious questions for the free software
movement and our ability to safeguard user and developer freedom. We
felt these questions needed to be addressed, as a variety of serious
implications were foreseen for the free software community and
developers who use GitHub. These inquiries -- and others possibly yet to
be discovered -- needed to be reviewed in depth.

In our call for papers
,
we set forth several areas of interest. Most of these areas centered
around copyright law, questions of ownership for AI-generated code, and
legal impacts for GitHub authors who use a GNU
or other copyleft license(s) for their
works. We are pleased to announce the community-provided research into
these areas, and much more.

First, we want to thank everyone who participated by sending in their
papers. We received a healthy response of twenty-two papers from members
of the community. The papers weighed-in on the multiple areas of
interest we had indicated in our announcement. Using an anonymous review
process, we concluded there were five papers that would be best suited
to inform the community and foster critical conversations to help guide
our actions in the search for solutions.

These five submissions are not ranked, and we decided it best to just
let the papers speak for themselves. The papers contain opinions with
which the Free Software Foundation (FSF) may or may not agree, and any
views expressed by the authors do not necessarily represent the FSF.
They were selected because we thought they advanced discussion of
important questions, and did so clearly. To that end, the FSF is not
providing any summaries of the papers or elaborating on our developing
positions until we can learn further, through the community, how best to
view the situation.

The following papers were selected (alphabetical by title):


Copilot, copying, commons, community, culture

* Robert F.J. Seddon, Honorary Fellow, University of Durham
* PDF


* HTML


* CC BY-ND 4.0


Copyright implications of the use of code repositories to train a
machine learning model

* John A. Rothchild, Professor of Law, Wayne State University and
Daniel H. Rothchild, PhD candidate, University of California, Berkeley
* PDF


* HTML


* CC BY 4.0


If software is my copilot, who programmed my software?

* Bradley M. Kuhn, Policy Fellow, Software Freedom Conservancy
* PDF


* HTML


* CC BY-ND 4.0


Interpreting docstrings without common sense

* Darren Abramson, Associate Professor, Dalhousie University and Ali
Emami, assistant professor, Brock University
* PDF


* HTML


* CC BY-ND 4.0


On the nature of AI code copilots

* Stuart Fitzpatrick, Doctoral Candidate, Western Sydney University
* PDF

* HTML


* CC BY-SA 4.0


What's next?

If this subject is of interest to you, we recommend you read this
selection of papers and share your thoughts and feedback. Several of the
authors have agreed to participate in follow-up discussions which will
be held via IRC , LibrePlanet
Wiki , and
LibrePlanet Discuss mailing list
.
Listed below is the schedule and details for these discussions.


Live events

FSF is planning a series of (now confirmed) live events aimed to
generate discussion around the findings. Please consider joining the
following events:

* 13:00 EST (19:00 UTC) Thursday, March 3, IRC (|#fsf|), Q&A with
Robert F.J Seddon

* 13:00 EST (19:00 UTC) Monday, March 7, IRC (|#fsf|), general
discussion




Discussion on pages

Whether or not you are able to attend any of the live events, we
encourage you to contribute to the discussion on the wiki and mailing
list. As stakeholders in free software, the preservation of user freedom
and copyleft, we would like to engage the community in any possible
actions that must be taken.

Thank you!
