Does free software benefit from ML models being derived works of training data?

Hi everyone! Hope you're all having a nice life! :)

While checking my feed, bumped into this, quite interesting article
An excerpt:
Github recently announced Copilot, a machine learning system that makes suggestions for you when you're writing code. It's apparently trained on all public code hosted on Github, which means there's a lot of free software in its training set. Github assert that the output of Copilot belongs to the user, although they admit that it may occasionally produce output that is identical to content from the training set.
