Legal Issues Seminar-General IP (LIS-GIP) On ‘Whether Digital Identities Are Accorded Protection Under Law?’

Featuring: Shilpa Margaret Kurian

A ‘Legal Issues Seminar-General IP’ (LIS-GIP) was conducted by Shilpa Margaret Kurian, Trainee Associate, on ‘Whether Digital Identities are Accorded Protection under Law?’. The seminar explored the concepts of digital identity and privacy, and the discussion saw how digital identities can be protected under the IP regime. Reliance was placed on relevant legal provisions under the Copyright Act, 1957 as well as on judicial pronouncements to understand the protection that can be accorded to digital identities. The session concluded with some interesting questions and dialogue among the team regarding the right to identity and right to publicity, as well as on the issues of infringement of identities in the case of street photography.
