SNG has a strong practice in the area of Media and Information Technology Laws (Information Technology Act, 2002, IT Act). The Media industry has witnessed a sea change owing to the shift in focus on “content”. India has, in parallel, witnessed domestic and international collaborations, and mergers and acquisitions in this space. In addition to local laws applicable to production houses, artists and intermediaries, SNG has also worked with multinationals who are active in this area of practice.
The IT Act has opened up new dimensions for Contracts, and also from the perspective of the Evidence Act. SNG has worked closely with Banks, NBFCs and corporate houses on e-contracts, digital signatures, e-signatures, KYC regulations, sharing and storage of confidential data in India and abroad, and the regulations connected therewith.
