Webinars on TDM successful!
On 12 and 15 March 2021, IPI successfully organised two webinars about data analytics (TDM). The two webinars were led by dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič, and saw more than 50 attendees.
At the webinars, dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič explained what data analytics or text and data mining (TDM) is, she presented the two new TDM exceptions in the new copyright EU Directive 2019/790, and identified future challenges for the Slovenian legislator that has to implement the Directive by June the latest.
IPI plans to organise more similar events in the future, with the intention of spreading awareness and knowledge on this important issue.
The webinars are supported by the US Embassy in Slovenia as a part of the NGO Small Grants Project.
