The event is a Sub-Regional Consultation for European states from UNESCO electoral Group II and is, besides IRCAI, jointly organised by Slovenian Ministry of Education, Science and Sport of the Republic of Slovenia, the Slovenian National Commission for UNESCO and UNESCO HQ.
The Consultation will focus on the draft Recommendation on the Ethics of Al that points out numerous issues of use of AI and reflects different cultural values on this topic. The objective of the 3-day Consultation is to receive meaningful inputs from experts to improve the overall structure and draft text of the Recommendation, which is to be accepted at the 41st session of UNESCO’s General Conference in 2021. Dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič will take part as an expert from Slovenia.

The European Court of Justice (CJEU) has finally (almost a year since the Advocate General opinion, on which IPI already reported) issued a ruling in joined cases C-682/18 (YouTube) and C-683/18 (Cyando), concerning platform liability for copyright-infringing user uploads under Art. 3(1) InfoSoc Directive. Even though the CJEU, in its ruling, refrained from engaging with the DSM Directive’s Article 17, the judgment is still highly significant, as it comms at a time when the fundamental rights compatibility of Art. 17 DSM Directive is in question, and very few Member States have implemented the DSM Directive, including Slovenia, where the public debate ended on 28th of June, 2021.
On 15th of July Advocate General Saugmandsgaard Øe has issued an Opinion on Case C-401/19, the Polish request to annul Article 17 of the DSM directive. Since the opinion provides an important clarification on user rights safeguards, COMMUNIA is organising a special lunch edition of COMMUNIA salon, on Wednesday, the 21st of July at 1300, on which these clarifications will be analysed.
