Intellectual Property and the Internet
CyberSpace, a/k/a the “information and e-commerce superhighway” profoundly affects our lives, how we communicate, entertain ourselves, distribute and store information, and conduct business. It is a virtual cornucopia where information and business opportunity flows unhindered across international boundaries, but is also a source of new and emerging legal issues confronting content creators, content distributors, users, consumers, and businesses. Whether starting a virtual business or extending a traditional bricks and mortar business, you are faced with a myriad of related legal issues and laws — e.g., business law, trademark law, copyright law, consumer protection law, state and federal regulations.
