1 Web 2.0, IPR and You Naomi Korn & Dr Neil Witt 02/06/

2 About Us Our remit: to develop IPR related resources and guidance to support JISC funded projects and programme managers in the users and innovations programme in their engagement with Web2.0 Our aim: To make the information relevant to you and to your project, by making it practical, pragmatic and timely Our team: Naomi Korn, Dr Charlotte Waelde, Professor Charles Oppenheim, Dr Neil Witt, Emanuella Giavarra, Derek Stephens, Rob Stillwell

3 Some key facts Most emerging technologies will involve: –Developing new content and technology and/or –Deploying/ adapting pre-existing content and technology Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Protect creations of the mind Reward human innovation, inventions and creativity Are pretty extensive Behave just like property Relate to analogue and digital stuff Easier to infringe in an electronic environment Comprise of automatic rights and monopoly rights Licences are tools to facilitate IP transactions Many different types of licences (transactional, open, blanket etc)

4 IPR Family… Consists of rights granted automatically, and monopoly rights 02/06/20154

5 The problems…. Multiple layers of rights = Multiple rights holders = multiple rights to infringe/permission to be sought Difficulties in enforcing any infringements that might occur Users of Web 2.0 services believing that copyright is irrelevant Misunderstanding about open source licences Risks that large corporations exploit rights in Web2.0 (trademarks; patents etc) Lack of clarity about ownership in collaborations Many rights holders unknown or cannot be traced Users of your project deliverables may also be rights holders of stuff they are contributing Cultural perceptions of users Copyright not the only rights issues IPR not the only legal issues Compatibility between rights in and rights out

6 About IPR.. Copyright – automatic right protecting creative works Patents* – registration required for innovative ideas Trademarks* – registration required for signs/symbols distinguishing specific product or service Registered Designs* – registration protecting specific designs Databases - collection of independent works, data and other material arranged in a systematic/methodical way or accessible by electronic or other means * MONOPOLY RIGHTS can be infringed inadvertently!

7 The problem…layers of rights

8 And…..what can go wrong? Infringement of copyright: –Debatable originality in pure data – but other works will be protected –Communicating works to the public –Removal of rights management info and TPMs? –Permitting more rights than you have permission to grant –Not clearing third party content (images; user generated content etc) –Liability of Internet Service Providers Breach of contract: –With JISC (and other funding parties) –With each other (Consortium Agreements) –With non staff (students; freelancers etc) –With employers –With third parties with whom you have established relationships (CLA Licence etc) Sustainability –Not tying up rights so that enabled to use them in the future –Not protecting rights sufficiently (i.e. Database Rights that might arise) –Lack of strategy to explore commercial opportunities Legal and non legal ramifications

9 What does this mean for you.. Potentially many layers of rights Permissions need to be sought and rights cleared You are subject to JISC’s t&c’s: – You own the rights in your project deliverables – You ensure that all rights are cleared – Content delivered under Open Access principles – Software delivered under Open Source principles You will be subject to Consortium Agreements You will be: Developers of content and technology = Owners of your own IP Deploying/ adapting others content & technology = Users of third party IP If you get your rights sorted, possibilities of future sustainability opportunities can be explored!

10 Getting started……. Answers to the questions below will form the basis from which you could go on to map copyright on to your activities. Now tell us how you think about your project. The Technology Am I developing a new technology? Am I developing an existing technology? Am I deploying an existing technology? The Content Which team members are involved in developing content (and technologies) Am I using content generated by a third party not a member of the team? Technology and Content How do I want my technology and content to be made available to users (over the short and longer term)?
