There are some non-technical issues with copilot as well. For example, the basic code snippets to train the AI were drawn from github projects. If you ask copilot to add something to your code - what's the license for that snippet? The repo it came from may very well be aGPL licensed while you're working on commercial closed-source software.

Also, the FAQ already discloses that a commercial version of copilot may come in the future. I wouldn't get too used to it. Just yet.
