FICCI Frames kicks off legal clinics with Lee & Thompson

Gordon Williams was invited to address the inaugural legal clinic at FICCI Frames, one of the leading media and entertainment industry conferences.

The clinic – which took place this year in Mumbai – was focused on the complex issue of media rights and Gordon offered insight into the procedure of website blocking in the UK which provides a legal remedy for rights owners against on-line copyright infringers. He also talked about how it relates to the complexities around the legal enforcement of rights across jurisdictions.

Joining this prestigious panel were senior legal figures Sujeet Jain, group general counsel of India’s fastest-growing entertainment network Viacom18, and the noted independent IP lawyer, Jagdish Sagar.  Chairing the clinic was the managing partner of major Indian IP practice Saikrishna & Associates, Saikrishna Rajagopal.

The FICCI Frames conference is run in collaboration with the International Association of Entertainment Lawyers (IAEL).
