Translation inherently triggers questions about intellectual property rights and data protection laws. As the translation ecosystem is complex, it is not easy to draw simple conclusions on who is responsible for what and which use cases are legitimate or not. Expert advice is required.
Therefore, TAUS in collaboration with Baker McKenzie Law Firm produced this white paper as a blue print for the translation industry.
In this white paper, the following topics are addressed
Distinction between translation data and language data
Defining a typical translation supply chain with legal rights
Copyright on language data
Copyright on individual segments
Copyright in practice
Applying GDPR to data
