About Seemantani Sharma (My views are my own and they should be yours too)

Nomadic IP Lawyer. Penchant for reading, critically thinking and writing (at times ranting) about IP. Awaiting for the Eureka moment for clearing my perpetual muddled academic interest - the global politics of IP or its economics or their confluence Aspire to enrol for a Ph.D in international and comparative IP law in the next five years or so.
