INTERNET LAW

“As the most participatory form of mass speech yet developed, the Internet deserves the highest protection from government intrusion.”
– Judge Stewart Dalzell
 
At the internet’s inception, the bar for calling oneself an “internet lawyer” was, by today’s standards, low. As technology and the power of web design has accelerated, the law has kept up — barely. We, however, take pride on being on the edge of internet law and helping our clients navigate the uncertainty of emerging laws and precedent.

Many legal issues arise from using the internet in business. If you run a social networking site, an online dating site, or any other website that allows user-generated content, you may become a target for legal action or forced to comply with the DMCA. Although operators may be immunized by Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996, you may be a visible, easy target for someone with a grudge, regardless of how innocent you are. The ease of information sharing on the internet has made it that much easier for your copyrights and other intellectual property to be violated, or for others to profit off your labor by poaching related or similar domain names.

By working with us, you can be apprised of problems before they arise and run your business to avoid any legal issues. If legal problems do crop up, though, we will be able to represent you in UDRP proceedings, state court or Federal court to protect your assets by bringing claims against those who violate your rights or defending you from parties who claim you have violated theirs.
