Re: Are neural nets (the weights file) copyrightable?

If they had not also released their NNUE net, I think everybody would agree that there was no problem. I don't agree. Let's say you pick a videogame which loads some jpg images. You change some of the images with your owns and then you sell the modified videogame without permission. I consider that...

Re: Fat Fritz 2

So what has this to do with the matter of demanding source code? You buyed a package and it includes GPL software. It is your right to have the source code and the possibility to study, analyze or change it. They are violating your rights, and you can ask for a refund. You wrote: Customers can ask ...

Re: Fat Fritz 2

"if goods you bought turn out to be faulty or do not look or work as advertised" so anyone who thought of buying an original engine can ask for a refund. The keywords here are 'advertized' and 'thought'. Read at least 5 lines of the posted links: "If you bought a product or a service online or outs...

Re: Calling All Armchair GPL Lawyers

I don't think the decoding part is math. Your opinion doesn't match reality. There is a standard, google it. Also your entire point doesn't make any sense: it is a separate binary file, so it's not part of the software. I suppose that all the icons or the graphic art of videogames are not copyright...

Customers can ask all they want, and ChessBase can happily ignore their requests. Only the copyright holder has any legal standing in this. Could you please stop saying obviously wrong things and never provide any basis to support these claims? https://europa.eu/youreurope/citizens/consumers/shoppi...

Re: Calling All Armchair GPL Lawyers

MP3 players contain a complex decoding algorithm, which can be implemented in different ways in different players. I am not really into MP3, but I know it is not an exact representation of the original sound, like a .WAV file would be. The encoding part, when the parts to be discarded are chosen, i...

Re: Paradigm shift

If this were true, there would be a wonderful network that produces amazing results even when used in a dozen different engines. But since we have the opposite, a wonderful engine that produces amazing results with a dozen different networks, I do not understand on what basis your reasoning is based.

Re: Calling All Armchair GPL Lawyers

One can argue that the NNUE are a standard format to encode Chess knowledge, and that Stockfish is an engine to express that Chess knowledge in the form of Chess games. Like MP3 is a standard format for encoding sound, and an MP3 player is a software tool to express that sound through the speakers ...

Re: Calling All Armchair GPL Lawyers

Doesn't matter: "This License will therefore apply, along with any applicable section 7 additional terms, to the whole of the work , and all its parts". It is distributed as a part of a GPL program, therefore it is covered by GPL. But the way I see it the NN is not "part of the work". It is just da...
