Re: So much for copyright!

If it is being used for training there is no copyright issue. Copyright prevents someone else from reproducing the same content, or enough of it it in an identical form that they can't claim "fair use". Using it for "AI training" is basically the same as if a person reads it and remembers it. An author can't prevent me from telling people about their book or article I read!
