'A FRAND Regime for Dominant Digital Platforms' and 'Evaluating the EC Private Data Sharing Principles: Setting a Mantra for Artificial Intelligence Nirvana?', papers commissioned by 4iP Council, appear in the latest issue of the Journal of Intellectual Property, Information Technology and Electronic Commerce Law (JIPITEC).

JIPITEC is celebrating "10 Years of JIPITEC" with its 28th issue. This includes two papers commissioned by 4iP Council.

A FRAND Regime for Dominant Digital Platforms by Mathew Heim and Dr. Igor Nikolic

This study explores how European policy and legislation has traditionally applied the ‘fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory’ or FRAND regime in order to ensure access to critical goods or services. This regime provides inspiration in the on-going debate around dominant digital platforms. Mathew Heim is the founder of Tanfield Chambers and Dr. Igor Nikolic is a researcher at University College London.

Evaluating the EC Private Data Sharing Principles: Setting a Mantra for Artificial Intelligence Nirvana? by Dr. Begoña Gonzalez Otero.

This article talks to recent European Commission communications on data trading and artificial intelligence with a focus on the Commission's “Guidance on Sharing Private Sector Data in the European Economy” which came with a working document: “Guidance on Sharing Private Sector Data in the European Data Economy”. Do these principles set a viable legal framework for data sharing or this public policy tool is merely a naïve expectation? Moreover, would these principles set a successful path toward a thriving European AI advancement? The author tries to sketch some answers to these and related questions. Dr. Begoña Gonzalez Otero, IP Researcher and Consultant
