Förderjahr 2021 / Projekt Call #16 / ProjektID: 5763 / Projekt: DALICC
In this tutorial we give an in-depth introduction into the Open DALICC framework, current implementation projects and the open developer program accompanying the DALICC community initiative.
From September 13 - 15, 2022 the 19th international Conference on Semantics Systems (SEMANTiCS) takes place in Vienna. One of the special topics of this year's edition will be legaltech.
Modern IT applications increasingly retrieve, store and process data from a variety of sources to create derivative works. This can raise questions about the compatibility of components provided under various licenses and the application`s compliance with existing law. Ensuring legal compatibility within ICT-enabled, interconnected service systems is a time consuming, costly and complex undertaking, and hard to handle for non-legal and legal professionals alike. To tackle these problems, we developed the DALICC, a semantic web enabled software framework that allows to represent software and data licenses in a well-structured, machine-readable form and use this information for purposes such as moderated composition of custom licenses, facetted license search and compatibility checks between licenses.
DALICC is the one-stop-shop for managing and clearing of licenses for the purpose of digital asset management. It supports legal experts, innovation managers and application developers in the legally secure reutilization of third-party digital sources. The DALICC framework supports the automated clearance of rights, thus significantly reducing the costs of rights clearance in the creation of derivative works and opening up opportunities for a legally secure exploitation of third-party digital assets. In essence, DALICC helps to determine which assets can be shared with whom, under which conditions, thus lowering the costs of rights clearance and stimulating the data economy.
The DALICC framework, its technical components and its datasets are available via GitHub (https://github.com/dalicc) and provided under open licenses (MIT / CC-BY / CC-BY-ND) for sharing and reuse.
Who should participate?
This tutorial is dedicated to people interested in LegalTech and compliance management from the scientific and industry domain alike. License issues affect almost anybody involved in either creating or administering software or data-related products and services. This involves developers, data engineers, library people, legal personnel, sales personnel and many more. Participants of this tutorial will learn about use cases, the solutions that DALICC can provide to specific problems and provides a platform to exchange ideas and start collaboration to develop the framework further – even beyond the narrow scope of license clearance.
