Every now and then The 1709 Blog team gets a refresh!
We are delighted to announce that for the next 6 months we will be joined by a new intern, Akshat Agrawal (Jindal Global Law School, India).
Here's Akshat's profile and experience in his own words.
I am Akshat Agrawal and I am currently pursuing my undergraduate BA LLB degree from Jindal Global Law School, India. I am in my penultimate year.
I was a part of the team that represented Jindal at the Oxford IP moot 2018, and am the coach for the team representing in 2019.
My core research interests lie in substantive copyright law and the core concepts which drive the threshold of copyrightability. Most of my research has been with respect to copyrightability of unconventional works, and the interface of tech and copyright (AI!!)
I am a huge advocate of author's rights, specifically singers mainly because of being from a musical background and the ground level issues we face.
P.S. My artist name is 'raagasforsolace'. Check my music out.
