Abstract [en]

The article focuses on copyright as a possible andadditional form of intellectual property protection forengineered DNA sequences. In particular, recent progress in synthetic biology and bioengineering have triggered a resurgence of the debate on genetic copyright. Considering the evolving conception of copyright subject-matter, the current narrow patent-eligible protection over living organisms and the advance of emerging technosciences such as synthetic biology, the article looks with renewed interest at the debate on copyright law as an additional potential form of protection for engineered biological creations. The contribution of this investigation is to reveal that copyright seems not only flexible enough to handle contemporary technologies producing living organisms, but also socially preferable to patent protection for accessing and using essential public knowledge assets in the life sciences.

Abstract [en]

The paper considers the global impacts of digital communication technologies and how they can influence media pluralism and media freedom as well as the ways in which legal systems aim to support and protect them within the context of ongoing technological developments. In particular, it suggests that although new media may potentially help pluralism, there are also significant challenges to achieving effective freedom and pluralism through new media. The paper concludes by proposing recommendations on how the current legislation could be used, adapted or modified in order to encourage media freedom and pluralism also in the digital context.

Abstract [en]

The chapter considers the global impacts of digital communication technologiesand how they can influence media pluralism and media freedom as wellas the ways in which legal systems aim to support and protect them. Electroniccommunication and technical developments have in fact contributed to enormouschanges in daily life. They have also promoted important economic,social and cultural transformations. The new digital environment has becomean essential space used for various purposes not strictly informational. In addition,digital communication technologies are regarded as necessary instrumentsfor having full enjoyment of a series of rights, including the right toaccess knowledge and information, the right to communicate, the right to cultureand the right to participate in society. This new situation also implies thatall people should have access to these technological innovations at affordableconditions, and that any restrictions should be strictly limited and proportionate.As online networks are considered a particularly well-designed space forpluralism and cultural diversity, their freedom and openness should be protectedand enhanced. In particular, the principle of an open and unrestrictedInternet – as it was originally conceived – should be considered an essentialprecondition for any regulatory measure taken with regard to it.

Abstract [en]

Many studies suggest that geographical indications (GIs) and designations of origin (DOs) can contribute to the preservation and transfer of traditional knowledge and know-how. In particular, GIs and DOs have been identified as a potential tool to enhance local control over resources and promote the conservation of natural and cultural values. GIs and DOs do not only protect practices associated with food production, but they also make these knowledge and practice elements publicly available. In fact – contrary to other intellectual property rights – GOs allow for collective ownership. They are also associated both to cultural practices and geographic sites, thus supporting the values built on traditional knowledge. As a consequence, the legal recognition of GIs and GOs can provide an institutional tool for fostering knowledge-based products. In addition, the relevance of GOs for protecting traditional knowledge can be observed not only in advanced economies but also in developing countries. Starting from these considerations, the paper looks at the use of geographical indications and designations of origin for agricultural products and foodstuffs in an attempt to determine whether they are an effective instruments of community governance. The article analyzes concrete examples to illustrate how this particular intellectual property regime on “collective rights” can be used to protect traditional knowledge or to prevent its misappropriation. In particular, the investigation focuses on how knowledge embedded in geographical indicators may provide and enhance shared knowledge assets.

2016 (English)Book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The volume is devoted to the relevant problems in the legal sphere, created and generated by recent advances in science and technology. In particular, it investigates a series of cutting-edge contemporary and controversial case-studies where scientific and technological issues intersect with individual legal rights. The book addresses challenging topics at the intersection of communication technologies and biotech innovations such as freedom of expression, right to health, knowledge production, Internet content regulation, accessibility and freedom of scientific research.

Provides an up-to-date overview of current legal developments in the global regulation of innovative technologies ▶ Combines theoretical insights and comparative case-law research ▶ Suggests alternatives for governing access to new essential and scarce information resources ▶ Offers provocative parallels and analogies between the regulative rules of technologies for the biological and communicative fields
