There has been some movement in the Generative AI space as it relates to developer productivity tools. In particular, GitHub Copilot is the subject of a class action lawsuit alleging copyright violations.

This site describes what is at issue in the case. This page covers a lot of the “why” behind it.

Note that the FTC is getting involved, and commented that it is seeing unfair competition in addition to copyright issues from big tech implementations of GenAI. Even more interesting is that they indicate that they will use their existing regulatory authority to reign it in.
