Commission consults on the opportunities for TV and film in the online age
In July, the European Commission has published a Green Paper on the initiative of Internal Market Commissioner Michel Barnier.
The Green Paper concerns the effects of the digital technology on the production, marketing and distribution of audio-visual works. It serves as the basis for a debate on whether and how the regulatory framework needs to be adapted to allow European industry to develop new business models, creators to find new distribution channels and European consumers to have better access to content throughout Europe. The document of the Commission was published in the context of the European 2020 Strategy, the Strategy of the European Commission for Intellectual Property Rights and the European Digital Agenda.
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.
