Poorvika Chandanam

Founding Editor

I am a final year law student pursuing BBA LLB (Hons.) at School of Law, Christ (Deemed to be University), Bengaluru. Being an artist, poet, and a social entrepreneur [Managing Trustee at the folk arts organisation-Janapada Kala Sinchana (R.)],  Intellectual property law is something I truly connect with. My interest in the subject increased after working part-time at BananaIP, Bengaluru. My immense passion in the field of art and culture and the constant proximity with artists made me realize the need to create awareness about Intellectual property law within the art community and also the general public. Further, the dynamic nature of Intellectual Property Law fascinates and challenges me. Hence, this initiative!

Co-founder & Editor-in-Chief

I am a final year law student from School of Law, Christ (Deemed to be University). I have always been interested in research, especially in the area of Intellectual Property Rights. My journey to accumulate more knowledge in this field has led me to pursue numerous courses from internationally accredited universities, such as Harvard University, Hong Kong University, University of California, Berkeley, etc. Further, an internship with Intepat IP has added immense practicality to my otherwise theoretical knowledge on IP.  My adoration for research has motivated me to spread awareness and advance quality research culture through this initiative!

Contributing Editor

I'm a final year law student pursuing BLS LLB from Dr DY Patil College of Law (Mumbai University). Being someone who loves to read, listen to music and has also dabbled a bit in creative writing, I believe that now more than ever, the world needs more creators. The interaction of technology, human creativity & law in IP fascinates me. I have also completed additional certification courses to learn more about this dynamic field. I believe the importance of IP Laws is all set to grow further. However, there is an increasing need to enhance their reach. By being a part of IP Matters, I wish to play my role in doing the same.

I am a third year law student at National law University Delhi. I have a keen interest in Intellectual property law, and I am quite passionate about learning about rights given to people over the creation of their minds. I am a student fellow at the Centre for innovation and intellectual property rights. Working here helped to develop a keen interest in ‘open science’. I am interested to know to what extent copyright law and procedural hindrances have restricted open access movement. Working at IP Matters I look forward to explore the less discussed area about interplay between human rights and Intellectual property law.

I am a fourth-year law student pursuing BA LLB (Hons.) at School of Law, Christ (Deemed to be University), Bangalore. I have always been interested in pursuing a career in media and entertainment law due to which I initially started exploring Intellectual Property Rights. My fascination with the subject is at its peak while analysing its application with other subjects such as IPR and Artificial Intelligence or IPR in OTT platforms, etc. My interest in the music industry and culture has been the biggest motivator for me to continue pursuing the subject and turn all stones in understanding the application of this particular field of law.
