Filtered Futures: Filtering Fundamental Rights?
Communia and Gesellschaft für Freiheitsrecht are organising Filtered Futures, the conference on constraints that upload filters place on fundamental rights, after the CJEU ruling on Article 17 of the Copyright Directive. The event will take place on September 19th, 2022, at Robert-Bosch-Stiftung in Berlin.
The CJEU decision on Article 17 raises a number of important questions for the enforcement of copyright law and the compatibility of upload filters with fundamental rights even beyond copyright law. At the Filtered Futures conference, we will discuss these consequences with leading academics and key stakeholders. A preliminary conference programme is available here, and a more detailed version of the programme will follow in early September.
Registrations for attending the conference in person are now open. Participation is free of charge and a light lunch will be served. Please consider that participation is limited and that registrations will be considered on a first come, first serve basis.
On September 16, 2023, Dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič participated in the event @Re:Source MAH – the 10th International Conference on Histories of Media Art, Science and Technology. The program was divided into various categories (“tracks”), specifically focusing on the documentation and preservation of media arts; climate change; pioneers of media arts; and the history of media arts in museums.
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).
On Friday 23 June 2023, a webinar entitled “Copyright and Legal Basis for Generative Artificial Intelligence Training” was held as the inaugural event of an informal research network in the region in the field of copyright. Researchers from Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and North Macedonia participated in the event, which is part of the national Open Knowledge Day initiative and the national and regional coordination activities carried out by ODIPI under the auspices of Knowledge Rights 21.
