EU legislates disclosure of copyright data used to train AI

"Interesting that it is "conservative wishes" and "leftist fantasies". And to be honest, neither have much relevance here."

I assumed it meant wishes of the lamp-dwelling genie, close your eyes and wish variety, which are traditionally pretty close to fantasy.

Despite my dislike of both surveillance and regulation, I think this could actually be a good thing. I say could, because politicians are not known for getting things right, but it's a good idea, at least.

If it goes to plan, all the arty types who don't want their work included in training data will be able to say so, and presumably be able to have it removed. Then they can stop complaining and go back to their easels, typewriters etc while the rest of the world moves on. Win win.
