A balanced non-panicky take on copyright and LLMs. Love how it calls The NY Times out for what I’ve always known: the only artists afraid of AI are deeply insecure of their own self-worth:

Let me let you in on a little secret: if you think that generative AI can do serious journalism better than a massive organization with a huge number of reporters, then, um, you deserve to go out of business. For all the puffery about the amazing work of the NY Times, this seems to suggest that it can easily be replaced by an auto-complete machine.
