Patent and Copyright Licensing

Patenting key AI technologies and only licensing them if they will be used safely sounds like a clever idea. Unfortunately with tens of thousands of AI researchers already out there, the odds of success seem small. Additionally it only buys you at best 20 years, the life of a patent.

On the other hand establishing a patent pool with a sticky license analogous to the GNU Copyleft might be more promising.
