Vivan Sharan comments on India's proposed e-commerce policy, Forbes, February 2019

Vivan Sharan, partner at Koan Advisory, a consultancy that works with several foreign technology companies that are operating in India, says the policy does "a poor job" at understanding what drives innovation and value in the digital world.
"Innovation stems from the provision of incentives, the basic premise of the many intellectual property frameworks," he says. "If the state takes away such incentives by labeling itself the self-declared ‘trustee’ of all data generated domestically, which seems to be a central premise of the draft policy, it does no service to the growth of a digital India."
