Webinar on data analytics (TDM) and copyright
On April 6, 2021, at 14.00, dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič, LL.M., LL.M. will deliver a lecture on data analytics (TDM) and copyright at the Faculty of Computer Science, University of Ljubljana.
At the webinar, two new exceptions and limitations on copyright for data and text mining, will be presented. The exceptions and limitations are determined by the new Directive on copyright and related rights in the Digital Single Market (DSM Directive), which should be implemented into national legal order by June 2021. The legal certainty of researchers and other data miners will depend on the quality of the implementation.
The lecture will be delivered by Dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič, LL.M. (Harvard), LL.M. (Torino), copyright expert and head of the Intellectual Property Institute.
For the webinar, the Institute for Intellectual Property received an NGO Small Grant from the US Embassy in Slovenia.
The webinar will take place on April 6, 2021 between 14:00 and 15:00.
“The privacy of individuals means limiting government or corporate power: the more someone knows about you, the more power they have over you, therefore it is not always worth selling it for a penny of apparent or real convenience,” pointed out dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič in an interview with Finance Manager.
In March, 2021, more than 250 organizations from all around the world, including the IPI, called on all WTO members to waive certain provisions of the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS), including copyright provisions, to more effectively prevent, contain and treat COVID-19. Calls for the suspension of certain TRIPS provisions due to COVID-19 have been successful. The US was the first to take an important step. When will the EU act properly?
Today we celebrate World Intellectual Property Day. The Intellectual Property Institute (IPI) celebrates it by publishing a collection of answer questions that we have received regarding copyright in education from the teachers for whom we have organized the project “Copyright in Education”.
On 23 April we celebrate the World Book and Copyright Day.
