Here's the scenario, according to Mike Masnick: "there will be one (possibly two) giant entities who will be designated as the 'collection society' with whom AI companies will have to negotiate or to just purchase a 'training license'... but, given the enormity of the amount of content, and the structure of this kind of thing, the cost will be extremely high for the AI companies, meaning that only the biggest of big tech will be able to afford it." For my own part, I find it funny seeing the very same people who have been so supportive of open access being at the same time allowing AI projects to use that content. The only way we get open AI is to have open content.
