Again if Reddit trained their own AI on user's data or gave that data to openAI as part of contract then you would have the point. But this is not what happened. OpenAI did not ask anyone. They run data crawling scripts and stole data without asking. It is nothing like what Reddit is doing. You did not sign anything off to OpenAI.

Your claim is that OpenAI has negotiated usage rights from every single site it’s gotten data from? Do you have any evidence for this?
