Sebastian Posth is an entrepreneur and consultant specializing in digital innovation projects within the creative sector. He has a history of more than 20 years in e-book publishing and digital distribution, and he co-initiated the International Standard Content Code, ISCC. In a voluntary role, he is the founder and member of the ISCC Foundation’s Board of Directors and currently working on obtaining an ISO standard for ISCC. Sebastian is also founder of and the initiator of the EU-funded project.

The speakers focused on presenting existing standards, notably the protocol by the W3C Community Group, the International Standard Content Code (ISCC), an upcoming ISO standard (ISO/DIS 24138), and other tools made available by AI platforms to protect content from being used to train AI models without permission. Speakers also addressed common concerns, including whether the use of content protection measures can interfere with online discoverability of content.

All IPA webinars are available to members, and their members, upon request.
