Governments planned to misuse CSAM scanning tech even before Apple's announcement https://9to5mac.com/2021/10/15/governments-planned-to-misuse-csam-scanning-tech/
@adam I hope they federate. Who cares if many of the instances block them, they should still federate.
(I also hope they abide by the Mastodon license.)
@stux seems like they’re maybe just trying to get them because some people were able to make accounts when it wasn’t meant to be publicly available yet. Is that the crux of the license violation claim or am I missing something?
@stux is there any precedent for this type of situation? Where the service/software isn’t meant to be publicly available yet? I would guess that, while in testing, they’re okay to not share the code as long as it’s released when the service is actually available to use.
I mean, if I make a modification to Mastodon and test it alongside friends for a few months before releasing the changes, would I be in violation of the license?
@firstname.lastname@example.org @ercanbrack from the Vice article: “Trump Media & Technology Group, the company behind Truth Social, did not respond to a request for comment.”
Have they issued a statement anywhere that you know of?
@ercanbrack yeah, for sure. I think everyone’s kind of jumping the gun on the legal issues, though. It’s not even launched yet. I would expect there’s some degree of grace period while it’s in testing, as long as they’re compliant at launch.
@ercanbrack do you know if they’ve made a statement about it at all? The Vice article says they requested comment and didn’t hear back, but I don’t know if they’ve issued a statement anywhere else.
