World Intellectual Property Day
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”.
IPI is a consulting, research and educational institution. The main area that IPI deals with is copyright. In the field of copyright, IPI organized and participated in various projects: we co-organized the Open Knowledge Day 2021, conducted Webinars on data analytics, with the support of the US Embassy within the NGO Small Grants project, and we are participating in the Communia Copyright Education project (CR4EDU) and in developing guidelines for Text and Data Mining. We also expanded the work circle to the field of data management and artificial intelligence, as dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič, LL.M., LL.M. participates in the Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence initiative and co-chairs the data governance group.
One of the many is the project “Copyright in Education”, which IPI is conducting in cooperation with ARNES. As part of this project, in February 2021, ARNES organized an online event “Remote Education and Copyright” for educators, at which dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič presented the basics of copyright and the challenges posed by remote education to more than 850 participants. Based on the questions asked during and after the event, IPI prepared a set of questions and answers to them.
Said questions and answers are made public on the IPI website today, and you are invited to read them!
Invitation to the event “Get to Know – Support for Introducing Principles of Open Science in Slovenia”
Discussion on the Slovenian aspects of introducing the principles of open science will take place at the 1st national event of the project “GET TO KNOW – Support in Introducing Principles of Open Science in Slovenia”, which will be held on Thursday, October 5, 2023, from 9:00 to 15:00 in the atrium of ZRC SAZU, Novi trg 2, 1000 Ljubljana.
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.
