Abandoning GitHub

I do not agree with GitHub's unauthorized and unlicensed use of copyrighted source code as training data for their ML-powered GitHub Copilot product. This product injects source code derived from copyrighted sources into the software of their customers without informing them of the license of the original source code. This significantly eases unauthorized and unlicensed use of a copyright holder's work.

I consider this a severe attack on the rights of copyright holders so therefore I cannot continue to rely on GitHub's services.

I now host all my public programming work at https://thelig.ht/code/.
