I predict that there will be proprietary software in the next 7 years that gets "infected" by code because of a code generator that returns training data that was under GPL!

@jrt there is no such thing as "infection". Many license have limitations, e.g, attribution, including MIT and Apache, that can lead to copyright violation.

@federico3 ofc there is infection. If you have derivative work with proprietary bits you need to license the proprietary bits under a GPL compatible license. There was a whole drama about this with blender.

I don't consider this a negative aspect of the GPL.
