So much business is transacted online that having a separate category dedicated to “Internet & eCommerce” seems unnecessary, but there are special rules and regulations that apply to the Internet and business activities that take place online that greatly impact the way businesses must conduct themselves in an online environment. Some of these laws that routinely require the assistance of an Internet lawyer include:

  • Collection and use of personally identifiable information
  • The formation of contracts in an online environment
  • The use and protection of copyrights and trademarks on the Internet
  • Offering of sweepstakes, contests, raffles and online auctions
  • The use of trademarks in domain names
  • The use of trademarks in meta tags
  • Trademark and copyright usage on websites
  • Copyright and trademark usage on social media, such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Pinterest
