Open Future Salon #2 Launch of Paradox of Open: responses
Open Future EU is hosting an Open Future Salon #2 Launch of Paradox of Open: responses on 30. 11. 2022 at 17:00. At the Salon, a collection of essays in response to the Paradox of Open by Paul Keller and Alek Tarkowski will be launched.
The essays tackle the paradox from multiple perspectives, looking at such issues as risks of underestimating openness, public memory, creative communities, social justice in the context of open, web3, and the legacy – and continuation – of the copyright wars. Guest speakers will be Prof. James Boyle, a leading scholar working on issues related to the Public Domain, and Anna Mazgal, Senior Policy Advisor at Wikimedia Europe and an advocate for openness and digital rights. Both of them are contributors to the collection.
You can register here for the online event.
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.
Dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič, a renowned expert in copyright law, has joined the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University, where she will serve as an affiliate researcher for the next two years.
