World Book and Copyright Day
On 23 April we celebrate the World Book and Copyright Day.
Copyright is a system of legal rules whose primary goal is to encourage the creation of literary and artistic works. The rules should be designed to strike a delicate balance between different societal interests: to encourage authors to create and disseminate their creations, copyright gives them a set of ownership rights in their works, and on the other hand to promote public education, public information and creative exchanges invite various audiences and (later) authors to use existing works in all possible ways so that they do not interfere with the domain of the holders of exclusive copyrights.
The book Copyright in the Digital Age: Problems of Copyright Protection with Technological Measures, authored by dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič, LL.M., LL., M. is available in slovenian language under the CC BY-ND license.

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.
