Artificial Intelligence: Creator or Tool of Creation?
You are invited to the discussion Artificial Intelligence: Creator or Tool of Creation?, which will take place as part of the exhibition Live, Laugh, Love, on February 8th, at 5 pm in the Kresija Gallery. Designer Emil Kozole and dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič, LL.M., LL.M., will explain how they see the development of artificial intelligence in the future and how this development will or should be followed by legal regulation. Welcome!
Emil Kozole is a designer who researches socio-political topics such as digital identity, online surveillance and new technologies. At the event, he will present the mechanisms of creation that led to the creation of the work “Syndicate for the Rights of Artificial Intelligence”, in which he analyzes past achievements in the field of human rights and explores what it will look like when A.I. began by fighting for their own emancipatory rights.
Dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič, LLM., LL.M. will briefly present the main challenges that artificial intelligence poses to traditional concepts in copyright law: whether works independently generated by AI can be protected by copyright. Is it enough for protection that the result generated by a machine looks the same as a creation created by man? Does the AI even need a reward or incentive to create? Can AI be considered as an “author” who creates “original” works?
The event is an accompanying program of the exhibition Live, Laugh, Love, which is on view at the Kresija Gallery until 20 February.

The Internet Archive will file an appeal against an unfair decision that ignores the value of the libraries’ work
The Internet Archive is a non-profit organization that maintains the Open Library, a digital library index, and is dedicated to preserving knowledge. As many of the works in the Internet Archive are under copyright, the Archive uses a system of controlled digital lending based on digital rights management to prevent unauthorized downloading or copying of copyrighted books. In March 2020, due to the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the Internet Archive established the National Emergency Library, eliminating the waiting lists used in the Open Library and expanding access to books for all readers. In June 2020, the Emergency National Library faced a lawsuit from four book publishers and was ultimately closed.
The 43rd session of the WIPO Standing Committee on Copyright and Related Rights (hereinafter SCCR) made substantial progress on the issues advocated by the A2K Coalition (Access to Knowledge Coalition), which IPI is a member of. This year’s session was the most productive on the issues of exceptions and limitations. James Love (Knowledge Ecology International), a long-time observer at WIPO, described the outcome and the impact of the public interest community as the strongest since the conclusion of the Marrakech Treaty, which brought global copyright exceptions for the benefit of the blind and visually impaired.
Today, March 17, 2023, a symposium on law in the information society is taking place in the golden lecture hall of the Faculty of Law in Ljubljana. Dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič will present copyright aspects of artificial intelligence at the symposium.
The third day of the 43rd session of the WIPO Standing Committee on Copyright and Related Rights is intended for discussion on the topic of exceptions and limitations to copyright, especially in connection with the right to research.
