IPI has a renovated website – with less colours and more content!
On ipi.si you will find a short introduction to all areas, in which IPI operates, the different projects, we are involved in, as well as a special section dedicated to legislative changes of copyright law. Through our new website, we will regularly keep you up-to-date about the novelties in the field of intellectual property law, especially copyright law and the areas connected to our work.
One of the things that remains unchanged is our logo. It was inspired by the perpetual motion machine – a machine that constantly rotates without any energy source – or rather a sketch of the machine as drawn by Leonardo da Vinci: an inventor, sculptor, architect, writer, musician and scientists who personalizes intellectual property law; its fields and objects of protection.
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.
