The theme for this year’s workshop is ‘Indian Copyright Law: A Social Perspective‘. The workshop has been organised keeping in mind the impending Copyright (Amendment) Act, 2010, with a view towards discussing the current challenges posed to Indian Copyright law in the digital age, and to answer the important question – should India borrow from the Western legislative and judicial practices and learn from their experience, or evolve its own jurisprudence keeping in mind our special needs and national aspirations?
The program includes lectures, invited talks, case studies, student presentations, discussions and field exposure. The workshop is open to all L.L.B law students nominated by their respective colleges. Registration ends on 30th January, 2011.
