The UK Centre for Copyright and New Business Models in the Creative Economy (CREATe), which supports this event, has set-up a Copyright Evidence Wiki containing approximately 500 studies, which facilitates data mining and the creation of visualisations. This evidence could be complemented with industry data and reports, in order to achieve a greater transparency and awareness in the area of copyright.
The challenge is to create visualisations of copyright evidence based on the data sources available at the Copyright Evidence Wiki and other external resources and/or to enhance the Copyright Evidence Wiki to enable others to easily create visualisations of the data available.
Next week ++Read our position on copyright transform and our activities to achieve this. will launch www.copyrightexceptions.eu, a website documenting the way the 28 EU member states have implemented copyright exceptions and limitations. The information available via this website will also be made available as a dataset for the hackathon participants.
Kennisland is supporting this year’s EU hackathon in order to encourage the creation of a more substantial evidence base for modernising the EU copyright rules. We encourage anyone with an an interest in technology and copyright to participate.
The coding will take place from 15 November 8.00 till 16 November 12.00 at the Google offices, Chaussée d’Etterbeek 180, 1040 Brussels, Belgium.
