      Usually the 10 page agreement that nobody reads will include terms that allow them to do whatever they want.

      You do consent by mindlessly ticking off that box at the registration process.

        This is materially different I would argue

        Though yes I understand that TOS that nobody reads has every content saying they can do whatever they want.

          You agree to allow them to use your data for open ended purposes.

          It shady, but legal

      These are the questions we need to keep putting out there so the law can finally catch up to the monotony of license agreements and terms.

      It shouldn’t be acceptable to present a layman with a 10 page legal jargon document for them to agree to and call it binding.

      I think it does. I was able to check the opt out setting from the app and it was already on. I don’t remember turning it on, so it might be default? I did update the app prior, so you might need to do that first.

        It defaults to opt-out ONLY if you have already told it to prevent other forms of scraping, such as search engines. Otherwise you are opted in by default.

      Simply ask an AI to generate that text.

      This will create a feedback loop that might result in a model collapse.

    We were never the customer, we were always the product.
