About the Moot

Technological advancements have often posed various challenges to the law which the latter is frequently struggling with. One such prominent and important area in which this struggle has manifested itself is the emergence and popularity of OTT Platforms. OTT platforms have spread their wings to encompass all genres of entertainment, that provide various interesting and appealing entertainment for all generations. In 2020, the worldwide COVID Pandemic resulted in an exponential increase in the subscription and demand for OTT Platforms. They proved to be the most popular and best mode of entertainment for everyone during the pandemic period.

The School of Law, Bennett University is conducting its third National Moot Court Competition from February 5 to 7, 2021 which revolves around this theme of law and technology focusing on the Regulatory Concerns Regarding OTT Platforms.
