Webinar: Intellectual property rights in linguistic data

Publication Date: 2024-05-08

The first webinar after the summer break will be on Intellectual property rights in linguistic data and is organised within the CLARIN-CH Working Group Management of Sensitive and Personal data, Ethical and Legal issues for linguistic data.

The webinar will briefly address intellectual property issues, particularly copyright concerns, that may arise when using language data in research. We will explore key questions, including:

  • What is “text and data mining”, and how do regulations differ between Switzerland and EU?
  • Does copyright protection extend to training AI or to AI-generated results?
  • What should researchers keep in mind regarding copyright law when using social media as research data?
  • Can data available on social media be considered open research data?
  • How are trade secrets handled in this context?

These topics, along with others brought by the participants, will be discussed during the session.
