National Seminar on Social Media, Information Technology and IPR

Media Law Center, Dr. Ram Manohar Lohiya National Law University is pleased to invite you to the National Seminar on Social Media, Information Technology and IPR

Date: 27th - 28th February, 2015
Venue: Dr. Ram Manohar Lohiya National Law University, Lucknow

The greatest gift to mankind from the scientific community has been the invention of information technology and the associated technologies in the last decade of the 20th century. This technology is of such monumental importance that it has been rightly termed as InfoTech revolution. It has put entire human civilization on a fast forward mode by making information, communication, entertainment possible through social media. Social media in particular has greatly impacted political dynamics on a global scale by enabling users to express themselves publicly in ways previously unavailable to them.

This very shift in communicative power has spawned greater efforts to restrict and control the use of the internet for information and communication on political, moral, cultural, security and other grounds. Social media is not only changing the way we communicate with friends but dramatically changing the way we work as well. Social networks like facebook, twitter and LinkedIn as well as blogs and wikis and other virtual communities offer new ways to engage customers and build stronger relationships. This effort of controlling the internet has led to legal and regulatory initiatives to mitigate risks associated with this new medium, ranging from privacy of users, Intellectual Property, national security, to frauds, pornography and hacking.

Well researched papers on the following themes are called for presentation in the technical sessions of the seminar. Every interested person is hereby invited to contribute papers for the proposed National Seminar.
