Conference on Copyright and Technology by NLU Jodhpur

The DIPP Chair on IPR, National Law University, Jodhpur, is organizing a conference on Issues in Copyright and Technology on April 8-9, 2017.

The organizers invite students, research scholars, faculty members and other professionals to submit papers on these issues. Authors of selected submissions will be invited to present their papers at National Law University, Jodhpur.

The rapid evolution of new technologies has raised serious questions on the utility and application of copyright laws. Many argue that copyright hinders development by limiting access to several important works and creations in the technological era.
