Research interests

Aislinn's research focuses on the interaction of intellectual property law with culture, focusing on the protections or lack thereof which are available to media other than those traditionally covered by intellectual property provisions.
Her current research projects cover the existence of copyright in street art, and the legal mechanisms available for removal of private sexual images from online.
