In fact, there is a realization that the Information Technology Act (2000) without having any provision for data protection and regulation increasingly renders the IT act inadequately in the fast-changing digital age. There is already a demand to have a new Digital India Act that will comprehensively cover all aspects of information technology. Nevertheless, it has to be recorded that IT and the digital revolution had promoted transparency in public life which naturally call for safeguards such as the right to privacy

Muralidharan R

I am an Advocate, Law Lecturer, Registered Patent Agent & Mediator, Trademark and Patent Attorney. I am the Principal of Manu Associates, a law firm based in Bangalore, and I regularly fulfil professional commitments in various cities. I hold degrees in both Biology and Chemistry (1976) and a Master’s Degree in International Law and Constitutional Law (1980).

During my final year of Law school, I had the honour of representing India in the Philip. C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition held in Washington D.C., USA (March 1979). Subsequently, I participated in a Program on Intellectual Property Law organized by the Washington Graduate School (USDA) in April 1988. I also attended the International Law Seminar organized by the International Law Commission at Palais De Nations, Geneva, Switzerland in 1991.

I was privileged to be one of the founding faculty members of the National Law School of India, Bangalore, where I worked as an Assistant Professor for four years. I continue to contribute as a guest faculty at NALSAR Hyderabad, IIM Bangalore, and NLSIU Bangalore. My articles have been published in both national and international journals, and I've played a significant role in enhancing awareness of Intellectual Property Rights and Cyber legal frameworks in India. I achieved this by being a Visiting Faculty in NALSAR PRO Patents, Cyber and Media Laws P.G. Diploma courses.

My involvement in legal circles includes being a Life member of the Indian Society of International Law, N. Delhi-1, and the Bangalore Advocates Association. Additionally, I am a Mediator at the Bangalore Mediation Centre, an initiative of the Karnataka High Court.

I regularly practice law in trial courts and various high courts, with some cases from the Karnataka and Madras High Courts being cited as binding precedents. I have also published research articles in reputable national and international journals, accessible through my blog: https://profmurali.blogspot.com/.

Participating as a Resource Person in Professional Improvement Programs on IP Law, Environmental Law, and International Trade Law is an important aspect of my engagement. I am actively committed to promoting IPR literacy in India, and I've organized skill development programs for law students, including moot court competitions in collaboration with Dr Ambedkar Govt Law College, Puducherry, where we've hosted the Tamil Moot Court Competitions for the past four years.

To further these initiatives, I recently commenced publishing courses on the online learning platform Udemy, aiming to enhance legal literacy among lawyers and individuals preparing for competitive examinations.
