Two thousand Eighty-Four by Copyright Reform

In 2016 the European Commission announced it proposal for a Copyright Reform, a reform we were all expecting to come, but could not foresee the controversies that would arise. Copyright law in the EU has long been recognised as obsolete, due to its failure to provide for technology neutral provisions that respond to the demands of the digital era. Among the controversial provisions of the new law lie two Articles known as 11 and 13 (currently 15 and 17 of the final text. The first introduces a neighbouring right for news publishers (a.k.a. link tax), while the second annuls the current regime of intermediary liability, raises the barriers of liability for internet platforms and suggests a damaging for the internet-as-we-know-it system of a priori censorship (a.k.a upload filters, censorship machines). This law passed the EU legislative procedure and has entered the step of its "national implementation". This means that we still have a chance to get informed and act! How's that? Join the presentation and we'll discuss it all step-by-step.

This presentation-talk would like to clarify to the audience the EU legislative procedure, summarise the developments as regards the Copyright Reform and ultimately, raise awareness and interest for the upcoming national implementation of a rather controversial piece of legislation. The structure of the presentation will be as follows: 1. Legislative Procedure - who is in charge, how do the European Institutions cooperate, how do they make decisions 2. Copyright Reform - from birth till... now. 3. What is wrong with copyright? Can we still do something about it? Yes? What? 4. Questions and time for discussion.

Was hat sich für uns durch die DSGVO geändert, was müssen wir nun beachten? Ein Mittelmaß zwischen absoluter Panik und Entspannung wäre doch toll.

Creating documentation is often boring and needs a lot of copy&paste to update the different output formats. I'll show you my workflow creating textbased documentation with asciidoctor and convert it through a pipeline to html, pdf and some more formats.

IPLD -- "InterPlanetary Linked Data" -- is a data format with a canonical hashing scheme. With canonical hashing, we get immutable linking; and with this, we aim to build libraries and tools for decentralizing anything and everything. We need foundations for building whole ecosystems that are immune to "Error 451": IPLD is a mechanism for getting there.
