Poorna Mysoor is a Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellow at the Law Faculty, an academic member of the Oxford Intellectual Property Research Centre and an extraordinary JRF at Queen’s College, Oxford. Poorna’s research explores how the structure of tangible property can be transposed to copyright to achieve a balance between ownership and user rights. Poorna completed her DPhil at the Law Faculty at Oxford in 2017 on implied licences in copyright law supervised by Professor Graeme Dinwoodie. Over the last few years, Poorna has taught several core private law subjects such as Land Law, Contract Law and Tort Law at various colleges in Oxford and Copyright Law at the Law Faculty. Before embarking on her DPhil, Poorna practised intellectual property law in Hong Kong and was a litigator in India.
