Call for Editors by Journal of Innovation, Competition and Information Law [JICIL]: Apply by Jan 20

The Editorial Board of the Journal of Innovation, Competition and Information Law (JICIL) is now inviting applications from editors to contribute to the activities of the journal by being a member of the Editorial Board.

About the Journal

Journal of Innovation, Competition and Information Law (JICIL) is a peer-reviewed law journal aimed at understanding the nexus between the laws relating to Intellectual Property Rights, Antitrust and Information or Data, including personally identifiable information. This journal aims to make an effort in identifying the key areas of Intellectual Property and Competition Law that coincide or overlap each other and yet remain complementary.

There is huge scope for the application of Intellectual Property and Antitrust Laws in India and therefore, this journal seeks to delve into academic research so a legitimate contribution may be made to the practice and jurisprudence around these laws. Information Era, the codename for the Twenty-First Century, is indispensable to the growth and progress of a modern economy, particularly data-based economies.

Further, we may recognize that the basis of Intellectual Property happens to be application of the idea and exclusivity thereon while the object of Competition Law is also based on information, be it in the nature of trade secrets, protected information or through practical tools such as non-disclosure agreements. Information is the key to power in the 21st century and therefore it is important to recognize the same and in support of this theory, this journal extends the scope of examination and inquiry to Information Law.
