Media and Entertainment

The Indian media and entertainment industry is experiencing a significant renaissance, driven by the emergence of OTT platforms, digital channels, and social media. With a wide range of activities and global reach, the industry encompasses various stakeholders whose interests must be protected. This dynamic landscape brings together concepts from contract law, privacy rights, intellectual property law and various other laws.
