A Proposal to leverage Article 17 to build a public repository of Public Domain and openly licensed works
Julia Reda (Gesellschaft für Freiheitsrechte) and Paul Keller (Open Future) have recently published a white paper, that proposes to build a public repository of Public Domain and openly licensed works, and to use Article 17 of the DSM Directive as leverage to create such a repository. The white paper was presented on Tuesday during the “Protecting Open Licenses in the EU Copyright Reform” session at the Creative Commons global summit.
The white paper proposes to use Article 17 of the DSM Directive as leverage to create a repository of Public Domain and openly licensed works. In the White paper the authors argue that, instead of building their own private repositories, service providers should, to perform their obligations under the DSM Directive, work together to build a shared public repository of Public Domain and openly licensed works.

We invite you to the fourth Open Knowledge Day and the workshop, which will take place this year within the framework of the programme and with the support of Knowledge Rights 21. The event will bring together experts from different European countries to discuss two topics: the first part will deal with the legal basis for data analytics, which is a key part of machine learning and related artificial intelligence, and the general exception for research. In the second part, open science in theory and practice will be presented both in Slovenia and in some Western Balkan countries. Representatives of research and educational institutions from Slovenia and the Western Balkan countries, as well as interested members of the public, are invited to attend.
