GPAI Summit 2022
Dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič is the co-president of the GPAI Data Governance Working Group (DGWG). On Monday, 21. 11. 2022, DGWG is organising three sessions at the GPAI Summit: Unlocking Data’s Potential: Improving Pandemic Resilience via PET (Privacy-enhancing technologies), Can AI be rights-preserving, ethical and still unjust? (Data Justice Project), Data Governance Working Group Public Session.
DGWG has made great advances on Privacy-Enhancing Technologies, Data Justice and Data Institutions. The work is now available on GPAI Website. The Working Group’s headline report provides a high-level overview of the DGWG working progress, including the new projects planned for 2023 (on the role of government as a provider of data, and co-generated data rights).
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).
