In this interview , Business Standard asked Conference Director Pavan Duggal about the various legal aspects of the highly successful Augmented Reality game Pokemon GO. He was quoted as under :-

“People get so engrossed in the game that they lose track of their actual world-surroundings. People have been walking into dark alleys or into traps and getting robbed. They have not been able to understand the thin line between virtual reality and the real world. It is possible that they’ll be subjected to loss and bodily injury if they are just going hunting for the Pokemon and are not mindful of the potholes on the road.”

“It is possible that a gamer could be intruding into properties belonging to the government or which fall under the classified category. Your location is already being shared while you play it, and if you are also beaming a location that could potentially be a government-classified property, it could have a ramification on national security or even national sovereignty – ultimately this game is run on servers located in the US and users shouldn’t commit acts that could jeopardise India’s sovereignty or national security.”

In this article on Pavan Duggal’s Blog, Pavan Duggal, Asia’s and India’s foremost expert and authority on Cyber law, writes his thoughts The Case For An International Convention On Cyber law as under:-

“Cyber-terror, cyber-radicalisation and cyber-extremism are rearing their ugly heads… It has been estimated that cybercrime will cost businesses more than $2 trillion by 2019.

The absence of any international treaty on cyberspace has encouraged different stakeholders to adopt various methodologies for the purposes of misusing the internet to further their vested interests. Consequently, the rules of the road are not very well defined.

Consequently, there is a pressing need to have in place an International Convention on Cyberlaw and Cyber-Security.” Read More

Prior to this, in July 2015, China passed another important legislation, the National Law on National Security.

“The year 2015 was nothing if not eventful, and while some developments generated plenty of sound and fury, others made a quieter impact. As I look back at legal developments, what stands out is how 2015 was a landmark year in the evolution of cyberlaw in India.

This was the year in which the Supreme Court delivered its landmark judgment in the case of Shreya Singhal vs. Union of India. The apex court had been called upon to examine the constitutional validity of Section 66A of the Information Technology Act, 2000 and its various parameters from the perspective of the various principles enshrined in the Indian Constitution.” Read more

This could mean getting a succession certificate from a court of competent jurisdiction which could be a time-consuming process,” explained Pavan Duggal, one of the nation’s top cyber law experts.

In this article, Pavan Duggal, Asia’s and India’s foremost expert and authority on Cyber law, shares his thoughts on the legalities concerning Digital Wills as under:-
