Imagine a world where you must seek permission from the government to own a potentially dangerous weapon - not a firearm, not an explosive, but a tool for writing. As bizarre as it sounds, this was the reality in Romania under President Nicolae Ceausescu's regime when the typewriter was classified as such a threat.
There is a tendency to desire to regulate and require licensure for just about everything. Even things like hair braiding and fortune telling can be require licensure in the US! https://www.lianeon.org/p/occupational-license-reform
I don't think there is any fundamental difference between requiring a license for a typewriter compared to hair braiding. Both are needless overreaches, born of irrational fear (and dont forget the money).
With regard to AI, I don't see how Congress, or any govt agency, would have the knowledge and skills necessary to regulate this emerging field without stifling it.
