  • Overview Who are we? The issue The Plazi workflow The legal aspects Synopsis
  • Extensive decentralized biodiversity infrastructure Plants 3,400 Herbaria worldwide 10,000 Associate curators and specialists 350,000,000 specimens in collections 180,000,000 specimens digitized 2,000,000,000 specimens including animals Source: gbif.org; http://sciweb.nybg.org/science2/IndexHerbariorum.asp
  • 200,000,000+ printed pages 1,900,000 species described 20,000,000+ species treatments 17,000 new species per year Biodiversity libraries BUT: The data are hidden Incomplete digitization Publications are unstructured Collections are incomplete Data are not linked Most data are not open
  • Names as information tags in life sciences Names Characteristics Publications GenesCollections Specimens Distribution

  • A global reference system for species related data Treatment: sections of publications documenting the features or distribution of a related group of organisms (called a “taxon”, plural “taxa”) in ways adhering to highly formalized conventions.

  • The real issue
  • Access to ant taxonomic publications through antbase.org /Smithsonian Institution, including currently the entire body of non-copyrighted publications since 1758 (>4,000 publications or The real issue: copyright
  • Restrictions to information exchange: - National security / data protection (n/a) - Copyright (only "works") - Database protection (only private commercial databases) - Data use agreements Copyright issues
  • Obstacles to Plazi workflow: - Scanning / reproduction of works - Scanning / reproduction of databases - Making available of works Copyright issues
  • Legal base for actual workflow - Legal license for internal use in organizations / institutions (Art. 19 CH-Copyright Act) - No database protection in CH - Legal license overrules data use agreements Copyright issues
  • Making available: - Only non copyrighted data (names, treatments, references, ... See http://plazi.org/?q=blue_list) - Works (original publications) restricted to internal use Copyright issues
  • Removing further hurdles to information exchange: - Suggest mandatory legal licenses for research purposes at EU-level - Explore application of extended collective licenses (Scandinavian countries) - Introduce extended collective licenses into CH-copyright law Copyright issues
