Internet Law 101 From A New Jersey Internet Lawyer

Internet law, or cyberlaw, is a relatively new field of practice that addresses all of the challenges and issues that arise as a result of the use of the Internet.  The laws cover a wide range of practice areas, including online business disputes, cybersquatting, domain name disputes, decency in communications, defamation, and many more. Internet law is in a constant state of change as technology demands.  Where most areas of the law are based upon precedent, Internet law is still being created as conflicts arise. Though the law that is being developed does rely upon existing case history for its framework, the lack of extended history means that in order to provide clients with knowledgeable legal counsel, a New Jersey Internet lawyer must be vigilant about staying up-to-date.  At Cohen, Fineman, LLC, we are New Jersey Internet lawyers who work hard to stay informed on rulings as well as on new technology as it develops in order to be able to provide the best possible legal advice.
