European Academics: Article 11 and 13 must go!
Before tomorrow’s plenary vote in the European Parliament on the Directive on copyright in the Digital Single Market, the European academics warn: “Articles 11 and 13 must go”!
The academics from the leading European research centres for intellectual property and technology law still oppose the Directive that, in their opinion, protect very narrow interests.
Even though there has been some improvement since the first open letter in February 2017 and the second open letter in April 2018, that were signed by more than 200 academics, Articles 11 and 13 (now 15 and 17) remain problematic and harmful. The academics are warning the MEPs not to adopt the Directive with such provisions.

The U.S. Copyright Office has once again denied the registration of an artwork created by artificial intelligence. Artist Jason M. Allen was unsuccessful in his second attempt to register the artwork “Theatre D’opera Spatial” as a copyrighted work because it contains more than a de minimis amount of content generated by artificial intelligence (AI).
