Open science and copyright, lecture by dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič
Today, 20 April 2023, Dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič will give a lecture on Open Science and Copyright, organised by the University of Maribor.
Open science is one of the strategic goals of the Republic of Slovenia. To achieve this goal successfully, a number of legal obstacles will have to be overcome and legal incentives put in place. One of the main building blocks of open science is an appropriate copyright regime.
The lecture will last 90 minutes and will be held remotely. Read more here.
On September 16, 2023, Dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič participated in the event @Re:Source MAH – the 10th International Conference on Histories of Media Art, Science and Technology.

The U.S. Copyright Office has once again denied the registration of an artwork created by artificial intelligence. Artist Jason M. Allen was unsuccessful in his second attempt to register the artwork “Theatre D’opera Spatial” as a copyrighted work because it contains more than a de minimis amount of content generated by artificial intelligence (AI).
On Friday 23 June 2023, a webinar entitled “Copyright and Legal Basis for Generative Artificial Intelligence Training” was held as the inaugural event of an informal research network in the region in the field of copyright. Researchers from Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and North Macedonia participated in the event, which is part of the national Open Knowledge Day initiative and the national and regional coordination activities carried out by ODIPI under the auspices of Knowledge Rights 21.
