GUARDIANS OF DIGITAL RIGHTS
Digital Rights Lawyers Initiative is a network of lawyers across the Globe who practice in the broad sphere of digital rights including the litigious and non-litigious matters surrounding digital rights. Digital Rights are simply rights exercisable in the digital space. These rights include online expression, association, assembly, social and economic rights, data protection and privacy etc.
In the real sense, there is almost nothing done exclusively offline again in this present age. Indeed, the whole sphere of human life has now been migrated online. From communication to financial transactions to trade to journalism and even justice system, every one of these activities has become digitally exercisable.
No doubt, the presence of a right denotes possibility of infringement of same, hence, it is in contemplation of the infringements of many of the varying digital rights that the Digital Rights Lawyers Initiative was birthed to facilitate protection and promotion of digital rights across the length and breadth of the Globe. More importantly, to train and deepen lawyers’ skills in the area of digital rights across board.
