As the daughter of a celebrated Dutch photographer, Maral van Brandwijk has been through the discussion of intellectual property, visual arts rights and copyright many, many times. So it should come as no surprise that her passion in law ultimately lies in visual arts rights. The rise of the internet has changed the world before our eyes. The greatest strength of this new medium, the ability to provide everyone with instantaneous access to virtually anything, is also the greatest threat it poses. And that makes Intellectual Property Law & Information/Communications Technology an unfamiliar (and sometimes unknown) dynamic field of law. Compared to the lightning speed at which new media and technologies emerge, the law is slow to respond. Within this grey area, Maral enjoys creating new links. Knowing rights, having rights, acquiring rights or granting rights are the things that Maral is right at home with.
