“NEW TECHNOLOGIES AND LAW” WORKSHOP ITM & GEDAI

“NEW TECHNOLOGIES AND LAW – challenges to the current regularory models

WORKSHOP ITM & GEDAI

January 16th – 19th, 2019

University of Münster

 

The Institute for Information, Telecommunication and Media Law (ITM) from the Universität Münster (Germany) and the Study Group on Copyright and Industrial Rights (GEDAI) from the Federal University of Paraná (Brazil) are holding the WORKSHOP ITM & GEDAI between the 16th and the 19th of January, 2019. The event will count on the presence of researchers from both groups discussing the topic “New technologies and law – challenges to the current regularory models”.

In the context of rapid and growing development of new information and communication technologies, society and the digital economy present increasingly new and more complex challenges to the current legal, and regulatory models in general. Such challenges are dominant in the developed societies of western countries and defy old paradigms that still insist on dominating in times of transformation and paradigmatic transition, thus making the protection of the most varied human and fundamental rights vulnerable.

Challenges and innovations are brought to the attention of international organizations such as the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the World Economic Forum, the United Nations, as well as trade blocks such as the European Union, who have sought to follow the transformation of this new paradigm and propose alternatives to deal with the new framework.

The society and the digital economy, based on data, algorithms and codes (both open and closed) place intellectual property as an issue that will permeate the various areas of study, relating in different ways with different types of rights.

Within this context, the Workshop was conceived as a democratic environment for the exchange of knowledge among the researchers of the study groups involved, presenting itself as a proposal to contribute to the debates related to the new model of society and economy.

It ought to be a space that is open to new ideas and debates on the proposed themes, in which researchers can share and be presented to different lines of thought.

The objective of the Workshop will be to study the Information Society while perceiving the evolution of the new Technologies and their impacts on the Legal System, mainly in relation to the intellectual property rights, in order to:

  • study the Information Society and its new disruptive technologies, such as the innovation coming from blockchain technology and the Internet of Things;
  • analyze the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which protects people by establishing the adequate ways of handling personal data as a fundamental right compared to the Brazilian legislation;
  • analyze the international system for the protection of Intellectual Property rights and compare the legal systems of Germany, Brazil and the United States;
  • reflect on the regulation of intellectual property rights in the face of the challenges to the Information Society and the digital economy as to its impacts on the protection of other fundamental rights;
  • evaluate the consequences of the current technological revolution and the advent of digital culture on the regulation of intellectual rights; and
  • examine the regulatory challenges in Digital Society and Economy in the face of algorithmic behavior.

The Workshop will be held in English and is structured in three (3) thematic axes:
