PIJIP organises a meeting on the protection of users’ rights against contractual override
On 18 May 2023, a meeting on the protection of user rights against contract override will be held in Washington DC.
The event will focus the discussion around three issues:
Why have some jurisdictions adopted protection against contractual override and others have not?
What effects has contract override protection had on licensors and licensees in jurisdictions where it has been adopted?
In jurisdictions where the protection against contract override has not been adopted, such as the United States, are there alternative legal theories that could have the same effect?
As a member of PIJIP, Maja Bogataj Jančič will present the legislative mechanisms of protection of users’ rights in the Slovenian legal framework. The event will feature presentations by a number of experts on national legal regimes in the EU, the US and elsewhere.
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 program was divided into various categories (“tracks”), specifically focusing on the documentation and preservation of media arts; climate change; pioneers of media arts; and the history of media arts in museums.
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.
