Professor Estelle Derclaye spoke on the past and present of the database sui generis and on the Data Act at the annual conference of the ALAI in Estoril on 15 September. She started the panel on the database sui generis right and publisher’s right in which were also peaking Prof Stamatoudi (Nicosia) and Prof Azzi (Sorbonne) and was chaired by Prof Hugenholtz (Amsterdam). There were a lot of questions from the chair and the audience to all three speakers which generated an interesting debate especially as to whether there is any evidence that the database sui generis right and the publisher’s right are effective and on the future of article 35 of the data act which deals with the interface between the database sui generis right and art 4 and 5 of the data act which opens up machine-generated (IoT) data.
Meanwhile, Prof Derclaye couldn’t be at EPIP in Cambridge, which clashed with ALAI, but her co-author Guido Noto La Diega presented their paper on the database sui generis right and the date act in the fourth industrial revolution.
