Nordic Copyright Symposium 2024 (26-27 September 2024)

If you are interested in copyright from an EU and Nordic perspective, then consider attending the Symposium organized by Dansk Selskab for Ophavsret in Copenhagen.

As explained by the organizers, the programme will attempt to answer the following questions:
  • How have the Nordic countries implemented the DSM Directive, including its Chapter 3 on contracts?
  • Can material created using AI be protected by copyright? And who holds the rights in that case?
  • When is text and data mining for AI development legally permitted under copyright law?
  • Does AI technology also entail copyright infringement apart from this? If so, how should we handle it?

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
