Legal Policy and Copyright Reform [clear filter]
Thursday, May 9
 

9:00am

How to win the (c) wars?
Many of us have been involved in advocating for commons-friendly copyright law reform in countries. There's been some progress, but many setbacks.

We're putting together a panel of people who have been in the trenches of copyright law reform from around the world to share their experiences, war stories, wins and losses and what strategies we need going forward, with an eye toward providing some thoughts or suggestions on what Creative Commons the org and network can do in this space.

After the expert panel discussion, we'll have opportunities for open conversation and reaction from other participants in the room.

We'll also get a report back from the CC Global Network copyright law reform survey to understand who is involved and on which issues.

At the end we will have the opportunity to preview other relevant summit sessions where this talk and action will be carried forward.

Traditional Knowledge and the Commons: What's Next?
The relationship of the Commons with Traditional Knowledge is an under-explored aspect of the Open Movement. It’s not clear how Traditional Knowledge can benefit from the Commons. These issues were discussed at the CC Global Summit in 2018. Since then, CC has released a White Paper, drawing feedback from various stakeholders around the world. The proposed panel aims to take this conversation forward. It will invite a diverse range of stakeholders to delve deeper into how the open movement can better serve communities of all kinds, especially Indigenous communities.

The State of Copyright Filtering
A wave of recent policy proposals would mandate online intermediaries to filter content for copyright infringement. The EU's recent Copyright Directive effectively requires online platforms to use filters in order to avoid liability for copyright infringement, and large rightsholders have advocated similar measures in the US. In this session, we'll discuss the recent policy proposals on filtering. We'll also discuss how large web platforms currently use copyright filters and their unintended consequences for legitimate speech online. In understanding the limitations of these tools, we can improve the debate around their use, particularly as lawmakers consider proposals to require web platforms to filter.

Mind the gap - Theory and practice of CC Attribution
Attribution is a core element of CC licencing. The attribution requirement has to be manageable so that it can provide legal certainty. Yet, experience shows that many users are overchallenged with its complexities and that the obligation is a source of manifold errors. Many cases are reported where minor formal mistakes, like e.g. a missing hyperlink to the license, were legally attacked in lawsuits or cease-and-desist proceedings. This needs to be counteracted. A preferred outcome would be to find examples of good and best practises that could serve as a basis to phrase official guidelines.

Right(s) balance: Open by default vs privacy by design
Fighting for greater transparency and protecting privacy are two sides of the same coin - both principles seek to prevent corruption, promote freedom of expression, and construct solid democratic institutions that have the interests of their citizens at heart. However, often the various camps advocating for these fundamental rights use different approaches. Currently, data rights-based legal frameworks are contradictory in principle -- while many Rights to Information (RTI) laws are moving towards promoting open data and transparency by default, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union introduces specific privacy by default and by design obligation. This was an issue that emerged during a global revision of the Open Data Charter principles, aiming to maintain these norms as the cutting-edge and highest normative standard in the field. 
The way governments and private companies are increasing the use of data-driven technology, and the extensive collection and use of personal data bring the discussion back to the forefront. Recent stories that uncovered how private data has been misused have further tipped the scale in favour of restricting access to information. To avoid back peddling on important strides in transparency reforms from rightfully concerned governments, the Open Data Charter and Open Knowledge International partnered to host this session seeking to build a shared framing that helps government officials navigate conflicting rights-based approaches to how data should be governed, clarifying what open by default means in practice.

Public Domain Awareness Project: enhancing use of CC’s Public Domain tools for GLAM institutions and re-users Part 1: Challenges to supporting a robust public domain in a complicated ecosystem
The aim of this workshop is to understand the current needs of GLAM institutions when marking works in the public domain, and their challenges when using CC’s Public Domain tools, especially with regards to: hybrid works (in the public domain in some jurisdiction(s) and under copyright in others); copyright clearance assessments that GLAM institutions undertake; and communicating re-use of public domain works to the general public. This workshop is timely given the need for institutions contributing to projects such as Europeana and DPLA to convey copyright and public domain information.

Public Domain Awareness Project: enhancing use of CC’s Public Domain tools for GLAM institutions and re-users Part 2: Exploring dependencies and legal/tech solutions for GLAM institutions and reusers
In this part of the session, we will split into four breakout groups: 
  • GLAM (Leads: Evelin Heidel --Scann--; Paul Keller; Roger Gillis)
  • Reusers (Leads: Sarah Pearson & Alex Stinson)
  • Legal (Leads: Diane Peters & Meredith Jacob)
  • Tech (Leads: Alden Page & Maarten Zeinstra)


Each group will workshop 3 groups of questions for 30 minutes (each) and report out following completion of each question (~ 5 mins per group). The questions for all groups will focus on the same challenge but from their respective focal points. For each of the three questions, the groups will be asked to consider the following aspects, plus any other points they consider important:

  • the nature of the challenges as framed
  • who experiences the challenges and who will benefit from a solution
  • what’s necessary to solve or ease the challenge for those audience(s), and who needs to be involved in crafting its solution
  • tangible action items and immediate next steps

Please see the agenda for the specific questions.

Open Data and Open Government Lightning Talks: Amanda Wakaruk, Huseyin Kebapci, Sailesh Patnaik
Lightning talk: Amanda Wakaruk
The closed door of open government: Creative Commons as a remedy for Crown copyright barriers
Open licensing of government publications is a laudable goal, but is rarely achieved in Canada. As a result, many government works have become inaccessible, or even been lost due to Crown copyright chill. This session will report on recent advocacy work to persuade Canada’s federal government to update an antiquated and undemocratic copyright provision. This includes parliamentary testimony provided by Creative Commons and other stakeholders.

Lightning talk: Huseyin Kebapci
Furthering the reuse of public knowledge: European Commission adopts CC
licenses

The European Commission has recently adopted CC-BY 4.0 and CC0 as its
standard open licences. Through its reuse policy, the Commission has already
been making its documents, publications, data and websites freely available to
the wider public. With CC licences, we can now create a reuse experience that is
less burdensome, more user-friendly and machine readable, all the while
improving legal clarity and downstream compatibility. The European Commission
is also launching a multi-language translation initiative to contribute to the
efforts of the Creative Commons community.

Lightning talk: Sailesh Patnaik
From a pilot project to policy level changes; Odisha Government adopting CC licenses
It all started in June 2017 where as a pilot project Odisha government released the website of Asian Athletic Championship under a Creative Commons license, showing the impact of their decision and with more pilot projects in the last one year, Odisha has agreed to have an Open content policy and adopt Creative Commons 4.0 license as a default license of their work.

The European Copyright Directive: Past, Present, Future
3 Years of EU Copyright Reform - The Good, the Bad and the Ugly presented by Paul Keller
European Copyright Directive Adopted - Now What? presented by Stephen Wyber

On 22 April 2019 the European Union's Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market was published in the official journal of the European Union. This moment concludes a 30 month long legislative fight about reforming the EU copyright system. It also marks the beginning of a two year period for the EU Member States to implement the new copyright rules into their national copyright laws. 

In the first part of this session, Paul Keller (COMMUNIA) will provide an overview of the EU copyright reform process. In the second part chaired by Stephen Wyber (IFLA), representatives from IFLA, COMMUNIA, Wikimedia, and Creative Commons will discuss the possibilities and strategies for positively influencing the national implementations of the directive.


The opening lecture ("5 Years of EU Copyright Reform - The Good, the Bad and the Ugly") will trace the copyright reform process back from its origins in 2014 until its conclusion earlier this year and evaluate the impact of the various measures adopted. It will evaluate where we have made progress, were we have suffered defeats and why we have ended up where we have ended up. This session draws on the experiences of COMMUNIA's five year long involvement in the copyright reform process. 

In the second part representatives from organisations promoting access to knowledge that have been closely engaged in the European copyright reform over the past years will discuss ways to positively influence the national implementations of the directive. This workshop will provide an opportunity for anyone interested in working on the implementation on the national levels to join this effort and to discuss strategy and the opportunities offered by the implementation on the national level.

This session highlights the importance of options for retaining copyright for authors especially in the context of new university and funder OA policies that require faculty to retain some rights to make works openly accessible. The session will explore considerations that went into updating the SPARC Canadian Author Addendum and CC’s newest addenda offerings. While the Addendum is an important tool for authors who wish to retain their rights, it is essential to contextualize this tool within the framework of options for retaining rights.

Strategies for defending the commons and the users (Roundtable: Sophie Bloemen, Alek Tarkowski; Lightning talks: Luis Roman Arciniega Gil, Helen Chuma-Okoro)
Strategies for defending the commons and the users (Roundtable: Sophie Bloemen, Alek Tarkowski; Lightning talks: Luis Roman Arciniega Gil, Helen Chuma-Okoro)

During the session, we will conduct a roundtable on strategies for defending the commons and the users, followed by two lightning talks on related topics.

In the first part, Sophie Bloemen and Alek Tarkowski will facilitate a roundtable discussion with all session participants on strategies for defending the commons and the users. The roundtable will build on the keynote talk given by Sophie on Thursday evening.

We will discuss the possibility of developing a framework for digital policies that is based around such concepts as the commons, decentralisation, self-determination and public provision of goods. We want to ask the question: is such a broad vision needed, and useful, for the Creative Commons and the free culture movement? As a starting point, we will take the experience of desgning "Shared Digital Europe", a new vision for digital policymaking in Europe. We believe that an alternative, high-level frame is needed to move us away from the market orthodoxy that dominates much of policy debates - not just in Europe, but all over the world.

The roundtable will be followed by two lightning talks.

Helen Chuma-Okoro will give a talk on "User-right approach to copyright law reform in Africa from the angle of access to learning material & right to education". This presentation argues for a strong user-rights philosophy and objective in copyright law reform as imperative to the achievement of public interest objectives, such as the right to education, which can be seriously affected by copyright standards that inhibit the access learning materials. The research will be useful to ongoing copyright reform processes. Additionally, it could motivate the necessary reforms where no such project is ongoing.

Luis Roman Arciniega Gil will give a talk "Towards the recognition of open public data as informational commons". Everyday new platforms providing different services are created and all of them have data at the core of its operating model. Considering open public data as a common good implies rethinking its legal nature and recognizing collective rights over such type of data to shape its institutional order and guarantee its protection.

Developing Projects for the Copyright Reform Platform
At previous summits we’ve worked on sharing information about copyright reform opportunities, wrote the rationale for the platform, and updated our goals and objectives with broad input from the community. This year we’d like to focus on bringing people together to dig into the development of collaborative projects in service of the platform goals and objectives.

One size fits no one: Building a strategy for advocacy in a global movement
In July 2018, Wikimedia movement launched 9 working groups that have been tasked with developing a strategy for the next 12 years. Advocacy is probably one of the topics that go the most beyond the movement itself and that touch on achieving change benefitting literally everyone. But is is possible to have a strategy that encompasses contexts that are open to citizen voice and those that are not? Can the variety of political and non-political methods form a cohesive tactics? Are we ready to charge free knowledge with the potential to change the world?
