Consultation on AI in EU
On 19 February 2020, European Commission launched the Consultation on AI and invited citizens and stakeholders to provide their comments on the White Paper on Artificial Intelligence until 14 June 2020.
Creative Commons organisation took part in the Consultation as well, by submitting their comment wherein they oppose premature copyright regulation of AI generated outputs, highlight the need for broad copyright exceptions and limitations to ensure open access, and emphasise the necessity for efficient Text and Data Mining (TDM) exception.
Dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič assisted in preparation of the Comment. The CC’s Comment in full is available here.
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.
The 43rd session of the WIPO Standing Committee on Copyright and Related Rights (SCCR/43) is being held in Geneva from March 13 to 17, 2023. The Intellectual Property Institute has a permanent observer status at WIPO since 2022 and is also a member of the Access to Knowledge Coalition (A2K coalition).
