Objectives of the Seminar:
The Information Technology Act, 2000 is not to be read in isolation. lt has to be read and understood with other codes, acts, rules and regulations. The Information Technology Act is now in force and most of the rules and regulations prescribed under the act have already been notified, adjudicating officers are being appointed, the cyber appellate tribunal is now a reality. This seminar attempts to disseminate knowledge about the Information Technology law by highlighting the legislative spirits beyond the enactment of Information Technology Act, 2000. The Act though highly technical in some extent needs simple non-technical explanations. For this purpose line diagrams may be used to explain the complex technological concepts.
The seminar emphasis is on looking at the practical application of law rather than merely generating an academic interest in the subject of Information Technology. This seminar takes a look at global issues involved, whether it is the question of jurisdiction, the aspect of defamation, freedom of expression, electronic taxation, and Intellectual Property Rights. Moreover, these global issues have been discussed against the backdrop of emerging case law and enactments. The emphasis is more on deciphering the key legal issues and principles keeping in view the global context of internet.
Due to technological advancement of society, many issues arose in relation to the integrity and security of cyber space, information, privacy, intellectual property rights, electronic transactions, etc. In India the Information Technology Act, 2000 being the primary source of cyber law with its 2008 amended provisions is currently dealing with various issues relating to use and abuse of cyber technology. Additionally, laws such as Indian Penal Code, Indian Evidence Act, Indian Contract Act, Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) laws, banking laws, etc, complement the current Indian Cyber law framework.
Research and development in the area of cyber security is also of immense importance today and is the need of the day. Such research indeed must contribute and lead to further development of cyber laws and regulatory mechanisms of the country. Hence, the seminar will provide a platform for the scholars and researchers from the area of cyber security laws so as to facilitate deliberation and exchange of ideas amongst them about this crucial issue of concern.
Well researched papers on the main theme of the seminar are called for presentation in the technical sessions of the seminar. The sub-themes of the seminar (not limited to) are:
