EU’s chilling copyright crackdown an ‘attack on openness’

- February 14, 2019 in copyright, eu, Internet, News

EU negotiators have struck a deal over copyright reform that is an ‘attack on openness’, the new chief executive of Open Knowledge International has warned. Catherine Stihler, a former MEP and vice-chair of the European Parliament’s consumer protection committee, said the changes will restrict internet freedoms for millions of users. The agreement will require platforms such as Youtube, Twitter or Google News to take down user-generated content that could breach intellectual property and install filters to prevent people from uploading copyrighted material. That means memes, GIFs and music remixes may be taken down because the copyright does not belong to the uploader. It could also restrict the sharing of vital research and facts, allowing ‘fake news’ to spread. The proposed changes will now head to the European Parliament for a vote among all MEPs in March or April. Open Knowledge International is a non-profit organisation which fights for open data and helps groups access and use data to address social problems. Catherine Stihler, chief executive of Open Knowledge International, said:
“This deeply disappointing deal is an attack on openness. The copyright crackdown will lead to a chilling effect on freedom of speech across the EU. We want people to be empowered to build, share and reuse their own data and content freely and openly, and this move goes against that principle. It does not enhance citizens’ rights, and could lead to Europe becoming a more closed society – restricting how we share research that could lead to medical breakthroughs or how we share facts to combat the spread of ‘fake news’. I urge MEPs to vote down this proposal and fight for a future where our world is more open.”

Sweden needs better coordination, skills and concrete incentives to drive the work on open data forward

- February 12, 2019 in Open Data

The assessment of Sweden’s commitments in the framework of the Open Government Partnership (OGP)* has just been published. The assessment shows that Sweden’s third OGP action plan led to greater access to public service information. However, Alina Östling, the researcher who carried out the evaluation, underlines that future action plans could be more ambitious and be preceded by wider consultations with civil society during their development and implementation.
Sweden has faced issues with digital management and coordination for many years. A previous study by the Swedish National Financial Management Authority (ESV) found that progress towards digitization in the public sector varies significantly across different state and municipal organizations with a few excelling, while the majority lags behind. The government assignments given to the pilot agencies in the framework of the Digital First programme have led to some improvements in terms of access to information, as several agencies have released substantial amounts of open data. For example, in September 2017, the Swedish mapping, cadastral and land registration authority (Lantmäteriet) released open geographic data according to the CC0 license (meaning that all rights are waived), and the Environment Agency released data in July 2018 that should facilitate navigation in protected areas that are free to use in proprietary applications. However, Lantmäteriet suggests that important obstacles remain, including a fragmented and partly analogous information supply. This impedes access to information, leads to unnecessary duplication of work for stakeholders, and to uneven development and progress. Based on desk research and interviews with stakeholders, the OGP researcher recommends improving national coordination in access to basic public sector information and to invest in skills necessary for public sector digitization.
In terms of opening up Public Sector Information (PSI), the OGP assessment shows that it has become easier to re-use PSI. Sweden has increased both the number of PSI datasets published and the number of visitors on the national open data portal. According to the European Commission, Sweden has reached ‘portal maturity’ and is now an open data ‘fast-tracker’. The National Archives has further developed the national open data portal, and has almost tripled the number of datasets between July 2017 and August 2018 (from 494 to 1,432). The number of unique visitors per month has increased from 330 in 2016 to 2,000 in 2017, and the portal contains 90-99 percent of all openly licensed datasets.
However, despite good progress, the OGP report stresses that more needs to be done in order to increase the re-use of information, including more initiatives in the field of open data and a strategy that outlines the long-term priorities. Many authorities are still uncertain about how to facilitate opening data, and lack concrete incentives for driving the work forward. Progress has not been uniform across authorities and tends to concern only some spearheads in the public administration. The responsibility to promote PSI and open data, as well as to assist public agencies in publishing such data has recently been taken over by the new Agency for Digital Government (DIGG) and the progress of Sweden in the field of open data will largely depend on the strategy and performance of DIGG.

Building a more open world: thoughts from our new CEO Catherine Stihler

- February 11, 2019 in Featured, Open Knowledge International

This is my first week in my new role as Chief Executive of Open Knowledge International. Digital skills and data use have always been a personal passion, and I can’t wait to work alongside and meet so many talented people fighting for a more open world. It is a privilege to be part of an organisation that has set the global standard for genuinely free and open sharing of information, building on the vision of founder Dr Rufus Pollock who wants to create an open information age. There have been many gains in recent years that have made our society more open, with experts – be they scientists, entrepreneurs or campaigners – using data for the common good. But I join OKI at a time when openness is at risk. The acceptance of basic facts is under threat, with many expert views dismissed and a culture of ‘anti-intellectualism’ from those on the extremes of politics. Facts are simply branded ‘fake news’. The rise of the far right and the far left brings with it an authoritarian approach that could return us to a closed society. The way forward is to resuscitate the three foundations of tolerance, facts and ideas, to prevent the drift to the extremes. I want to help harness the power of open data and unleash its potential for the public good. In the last century, philosopher Karl Popper argued that openness to analysis and questioning would foster social and political progress. His vision can today be seen in the way that open data can enhance our 21st century life. There are cities in Europe using real-time sensor data to let motorists know the precise availability of parking spaces on streets and the location of buses in real-time. Open data can help the environment, by analysing usage trends in how we treat household waste, it can improve the health of a nation by predicting outbreaks of diseases, and it can allow authorities to respond to extreme weather events like snowstorms and floods in a more coordinated way. And it can benefit consumers as well. Last week at a technology conference in Edinburgh I met with a Scottish company called Get Market Fit, which has designed a free online tool called Think Check. It lets shoppers check whether a product or seller is all it seems and warn you if you’re being exposed to fakes, fraud or shopping scams. When open data becomes useful, usable and used – when it is accessible and meaningful and can help someone solve a problem – that’s when it becomes open knowledge. And it is not just about making our lives easier. Open knowledge can make powerful institutions more accountable, and vital research information can help us tackle challenges such as poverty, disease and climate change. If we know how governments spend our money — both their plans and the reality — they are more accountable to citizens. The poet Robert Frost, who spoke at President John F Kennedy’s inauguration, wrote about a man who said ‘good fences make good neighbours’. But the truth is that good neighbours don’t put up fences – they share knowledge across an open space. It is incumbent on us all to become good neighbours so that we can build a more open world.

Vaalivahti käynnistyy – tule osaksi joukkoa, joka tuo vaalimainokset ensi kertaa näkyviin

- February 10, 2019 in Featured, Open Democracy

Millaisilla viesteillä eduskuntavaaleissa 2019 vaikutetaan äänestäjiin? Liittyykö sosiaalisen median käytön kasvuun kärjistettyjen tai kielteisten viestien yleistyminen? Ovatko uudenlaiset ilmiöt, kuten viestien kohdentaminen henkilötiedon avulla tai politiikan ulkopuolisten toimijoiden informaatiovaikuttaminen rantautumassa Suomeen?

Näihin kysymyksiin vastaaminen on entistä vaikeampaa, koska kansalaisten tiedon hankinta ja sitä myöten myös poliittinen viestintä siirtyy kasvavassa määrin digitaalisille alustoille ja sosiaaliseen mediaan.

Vaalivahti-hanke pyrkii muuttamaan tilanteen. Se kutsuu äänestäjät joukkoistamaan vaalimainosten keräämisen vuoden 2019 vaaleissa Suomessa. Tulokset julkaistaan avoimena datana. Hanke käynnistyy 10. helmikuuta ja jatkuu eurovaalien yli. Sinäkin voit osallistua osoitteessa vaalivahti.fi.

 

 

Kun puolueet julkistavat vaalijulisteensa tai mainostavat sanomalehdissä, ovat viestit ja vaalilupaukset laajalti tiedossa ja tarkasteltavissa. Sen sijaan sosiaalisen median kautta tapahtuva viestintä kohdistuu usein yksinomaan ehdokkaiden omille kannattajille sekä saman henkisille ihmisille. Digitaalisten alustojen kautta politiikasta oppiva saattaa nähdä juuri hänelle räätälöityjä viestejä, jotka näkevät vain samoista asioista kiinnostuneet. Siksi kukin sosiaalisesta mediasta tietoja hakeva voi saada erilaisen vaikutelman ehdokkaista, ja kokonaiskuvan saaminen vaihtoehdoista on vaikeaa. Samalla poliittisten viestien tarkastelu, niiden haastaminen ja julkinen keskustelu niiden laadusta ei ole mahdollista, sillä viestit näkyvät vain kohderyhmille.

Etenkin Yhdysvalloissa ja Iso-Britanniassa sosiaalisen median vastuuton ja joskus jopa laiton käyttö vaalikampanjoissa on synnyttänyt skandaaleja ja asettanut vaalituloksia kyseenalaiseksi. Julkisessa keskustelussa aiheesta on laajasti hyväksytty, että poliittisen mainonnan ja viestinnän tulisi olla tarkasteltavissa ja läpinäkyvää julkisen keskustelun laadun ja reilun vaalikamppailun takaamiseksi. Kolme merkittävintä digitaalista alustayritystä: Google, Facebook ja Twitter ovatkin hyväksyneet tämän periaatteen, ja ovat alkaneet julkaista avointa tietokantaa poliittisesta mainonnasta läpinäkyvyyden nimissä.

Kolmen alustayrityksen järjestelyt läpinäkyvyyden takaamiseksi tulevat kattamaan myös Euroopan, mutta tämän aikataulusta ei ole varmuutta. Siksi kansalaisyhteiskunnan, tutkijoiden ja journalistien on työskenneltävä sen eteen, että vuoden 2019 eduskuntavaalien digitaalisia kampanjoita voidaan tarkastella julkisesti. Tiedon kerääminen kohdennetusta verkkoviestinnästä on mahdollista joukkoistamisen eli äänestäjien osallistumisen avulla. Joukkoistamiseen perustuvia hankkeita on jo toteutettu Yhdysvalloissa, Iso-BritanniassaSaksassa sekä Ruotsissa näyttävästi.

Vaalivahti-hankkeen tavoitteena on tuottaa avoin tietokanta digitaalisesta poliittisesta viestinnästä Facebook-alustalla vaalien alla. Hankkeen tavoitteena on saada 1000 Suomessa asuvaa liittämään selaimiinsa ohjelmisto, joka kerää tietoa heihin kohdistuvasta mainonnasta, anonyymissä muodossa. Syntyvän tietokannan pohjalta on mahdollista saada yleiskuva erilaisille kohderyhmille kohdistetuista poliittisista viesteistä. Näin muodostuva tietokanta tarjotaan vaalien alla avoimesti äänestäjien, journalistien ja tutkijoiden käyttöön ja tallennetaan myöhemmin arkistoksi.

 

Vaalivahti tulee käyttämään hyväkseen Iso-Britanniassa kehitettyä WhoTargets.me-ohjelmistoa. Voit osallistua hankkeeseen jo nyt asentamalla laajennuksen selaimeesi. Samalla sinulle annetaan henkilökohtaista tietoa siitä, miten oma poliittinen ”kuplasi” eroaa muiden Suomen kansalaisten kuplasta. Voit lukea hankkeesta lisää vaalivahti.fi-sivulla.

Open Knowledge Finland on saanut hankkeen toteuttamiseen tukea Kordelinin Säätiöltä, Helsingin Sanomain Säätiöltä sekä FUUGin Säätiöltä.
