Internet is for the people!
IPI and Communia prepared an overview of the articles of the Directive on copyright in the Digital Single Market in Slovene.
Communia analized nine different issues regulated by the Directive and not only the most problematic Articles 11 and 13. Good and bad solutions of the Directive are presented. Despite some good solutions, the overall assessment of the directive is negative and it will not make the internet work for people.
The analysis was made on the basis of the text of the Directive before it was conformed in the trilogue that was concluded in the evening of 13 February 2019. The final text is still not available in full. As soon as the text will be officially available, the changes will be visible on the assessments on the webpage of Communia.
As we have reported on 14 February 2019 the trilogue did not bring any fundamental improvements. After the conclusion of the trilogue, there was a very vigorous public response. One of the first to respond was the MEP Julia Reda. In Köln, more than a thousand people are striking against the Directive, especially its Article 13. Also, there is an internet petition against the introduction of filters that has collected more than 4.7 million signatures so far.
The 4th Open Knowledge Day took place on Tuesday 17 October 2023, with an accompanying workshop on 18 October 2023. This year it was organised by the Open Data and Intellectual Property Institute (ODIPI) and supported by Knowledge Rights 21 (KR21).
We invite you to the fourth Open Knowledge Day and the workshop, which will take place this year within the framework of the programme and with the support of Knowledge Rights 21. The event will bring together experts from different European countries to discuss two topics: the first part will deal with the legal basis for data analytics, which is a key part of machine learning and related artificial intelligence, and the general exception for research. In the second part, open science in theory and practice will be presented both in Slovenia and in some Western Balkan countries. Representatives of research and educational institutions from Slovenia and the Western Balkan countries, as well as interested members of the public, are invited to attend.
