Rules and Tools: Exceptions and technologies in the DSM Directive

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 17 aprile 2021

Giovedì 22 aprile ore 16:00. Più strumenti digitali che regole (“More tools than rules”) è questo il titolo del seminario organizzato dal centro di ricerca Blockchain, artificial Intelligence and digital Innovation Law Lab (BILL) della Luiss School of Law, in collaborazione con l’Associazione Italiana Editori (AIE). Nel corso del webinar verrà affrontato in modo inedito il tema della Direttiva sul Diritto d’autore nel mercato unico digitale, con uno sguardo sulle opportunità di crescita e di innovazione che la Direttiva apre, accantonando – almeno per un momento – le contrapposizioni che hanno caratterizzato finora il dibattito. La Direttiva, infatti, chiama tutti a ricercare nuove soluzioni basate sulle tecnologie, in grado di conciliare valorizzazione del diritto d’autore e ampliamento degli accessi, tutela del pluralismo e della diversità culturale e globalizzazione digitale.Il punto di partenza è la creazione della European Copyright Infrastructure, di cui in Italia si è finora parlato troppo poco, nonostante sia oggi un elemento centrale della politica comunitaria, tanto da essere inserito tra le priorità del “Piano d’azione sulla proprietà intellettuale per sostenere la ripresa e la resilienza dell’Unione”. L’obiettivo dell’iniziativa comunitaria è ambizioso: creare un’infrastruttura composta da tecnologie, dati e servizi interoperabili che consenta alla gestione online dei diritti d’autore di operare con la stessa semplicità, efficacia e trasparenza con cui funziona Internet. Ad aprire i lavori, il prof. Antonio Nuzzo Direttore della Luiss School of Law e del Centro di Ricerca “BILL – Blockchain, artificial Intelligence and digital innovation Law Lab” dell’Ateneo a cui seguirà – dopo l’intervento di Vittorio Ragonese, consulente del ministero della cultura in materia di proprietà intellettuale, un panel coordinato dal prof. Paolo Marzano docente di Tutela della Proprietà Intellettuale alla Luiss Guido Carli e Partner di Legance Avvocati Associati, al quale prenderanno parte: Anna Vuopala del Ministero della cultura finlandese, che per prima ha promosso il tema nel Consiglio europeo; Piero Attanasio e Paola Mazzucchi di AIE che faranno il punto, rispettivamente, sul legame tra norme della Direttiva e Copyiright Infrastructure e sullo stato dell’arte e le prospettive future della ricerca e sviluppo in questo ambito; Sebastian Posth, fautore dell’International Standard Content Code (ISCC), un identificatore simile nelle funzionalità al Content-Id the YouTube ma proposto come standard aperto, che illustrerà le potenzialità di identificatori decentralizzati e blockchain; Michael Healy, direttore delle attività internazionali di CCC, la società di gestione collettiva statunitense delle opere letterarie, che racconterà come le tecnologie abilitino licenze e servizi innovativi.Le conclusioni saranno a cura del Presidente AIE Ricardo Franco Levi. La sessione introduttiva e le conclusioni si terranno in italiano. Il panel sarà in inglese.Per registrarsi al webinar: https://lsl.luiss.it/event/2021/04/22/rules-and-tools-exceptions-and-technologies-dsm-directive

Spread Betting Tools: Use an Economic Calendar to Plan Your Trades

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 11 Maggio 2012

London (PRNewswire) The financial markets can be an intimidating place for aspiring traders, with many often struggling to understand why the financial markets move the way they do, and what makes a good trading opportunity. Fortunately, financial spread betting provider Finspreads offers a free monthly economic calendar to help new traders learn the ropes of the financial markets without having to make costly mistakes first.
Here’s an overview of some key events that financial traders, including spread bettors, should keep an eye on before taking a position on the markets:
The Non-Farm Payrolls (NFPs) are a monthly figure released by the US Labor Department and indicate the number of paid employees working in the nation’s business and government establishments.The employment rate, another survey released along with the NFPs, indicates the number of unemployed people as a percentage of the US labour force.Both figures are released as part of a single report in the US on the third Friday of every month, and are considered a vital indicator used to measure the economic health of the US.
GDP or Gross Domestic Product measures the monetary value of all finished goods and services produced within a particular country, by both the private and public sectors, for a specific period of time.GDP figures are measure a country’s economic growth. A positive GDP reading indicates strong growth, and would therefore have a positive impact on the markets, while a negative reading often causes pessimism among investors, triggering a sell-off.
The CPI, or consumer price index, is one of the most popular indicators used to measure inflation in a country’s economy.

Reliable Stocks Ensure U.S. Position

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 2 ottobre 2010

In an interview with the Financial Times published Sept. 26, 2010, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack noted that recent global grain price increases do not indicate the world is looking at a repeat of the 2007-08 price hikes. Vilsack said part of the reason for the price spike was Russia’s ban on grain exports – but that global stocks are higher this year than two years ago and market prices would stabilize over time.  The grain stocks figure, at least from perspective of U.S. supplies, was backed up by U.S. Department of Agriculture’s stocks report issued Sept. 30 that showed increases compared to last year in stocks of U.S. corn, wheat and soybeans.  U.S. corn stocks of 1.71 billion bushels are up 2 percent from last year and roughly 300 million bushels more than what analysts estimated. “I believe what we’re seeing from a stocks figure supports the Secretary’s position and confirms that the United States is a reliable supplier of feed grains,” said Thomas C. Dorr, president and CEO of the U.S. Grains Council. The increase in prices is mostly due to perception, rather than the reality of the situation, he explained. “It is clear that food security and political stability are interconnected. Any upset in the global food supply chain provokes a worldwide response that goes well beyond the commodity market price.”  At a meeting in Rome last week, Jacques Diouf, director general of the United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organization, made a similar comment, noted that the jump in grain prices following Russia’s export ban may have been enhanced by the response of some countries and market speculation. Diouf also noted that there are adequate global supplies of grains and that this year’s global harvest may be the third highest in history.
The marketplace volatility also underscores the need for science and innovation in agriculture. It’s important to have access to all the tools available for securing stable supplies and prices in the future, said Dorr adding that agricultural biotechnology is one of our most important tools.
