This course will provide you with a better understanding about the current legal challenges regarding the use and distribution of open data. By the end of 2021, we expect to provide you with new reports and host a webinar to go further into detail about challenges related to Intellectual Property rights.
- Understand the shift between traditional IP licensing and more current subscription based models
- Gain insights on the impact of competition law on the lawfulness of exclusive licensing arrangements, and on sector specific arrangements
- Learn which issues should be double checked before combining data sets in a single project
This session offers a presentation and panel discussion on recent evolutions in relation to intellectual property rights (IPR), as described in the research paper “Data sharing as a service: Will data services remove intellectual property rights from the picture, and at what cost?”.
Two topics are singled out: the impact of the Open Data Directive on IPR and the shift from static data sharing to Data-as-a-Service.
The first hour is a presentation on the current landscape by Hans Graux. The second hour is a panel discussion led by Hans Graux, with Annette Hillebrand (expert advisor at WIK) and Ton Zijlstra (secretary to the Dutch government technical council at Geonovum).
