The European Court of Justice (CJEU) has finally (almost a year since the Advocate General opinion, on which IPI already reported) issued a ruling in joined cases C-682/18 (YouTube) and C-683/18 (Cyando), concerning platform liability for copyright-infringing user uploads under Art. 3(1) InfoSoc Directive. Even though the CJEU, in its ruling, refrained from engaging with the DSM Directive’s Article 17, the judgment is still highly significant, as it comms at a time when the fundamental rights compatibility of Art. 17 DSM Directive is in question, and very few Member States have implemented the DSM Directive, including Slovenia, where the public debate ended on 28th of June, 2021.
On 15th of July Advocate General Saugmandsgaard Øe has issued an Opinion on Case C-401/19, the Polish request to annul Article 17 of the DSM directive. Since the opinion provides an important clarification on user rights safeguards, COMMUNIA is organising a special lunch edition of COMMUNIA salon, on Wednesday, the 21st of July at 1300, on which these clarifications will be analysed.
On 20 July 2021, the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Slovenia will host a virtual conference focusing on the effective protection of fundamental rights in the regulation of artificial intelligence in Europe and beyond. The event will be moderated by Dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič, LL.M., LL.M., founder and head of the Institute for Intellectual Property, who is also the Co-Chair of the Data Governance Group at the Global Partnership for Artificial Intelligence (GPAI).
On the 5th of July 2021 dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič, LL.M., LL.M., who is also the head of the data governance group at the Global Partnership for Artificial Intelligence (GPAI), spoke on the radio show Studio at 5 p.m. on the topic of setting clear framework for the operation of artificial intelligence.
