Internet Law

At the Crossroads of Internet Law and IP

We are Geeks and today, that is a good thing.  In today’s technological environment, businesses communicate and operate online through computers using email.  As a result, individuals and companies are constantly at risk of attack.  Sometimes you need an Internet Lawyer to help.  An internet lawyer is someone who understands Internet law.


Internet law covers a lot of territory. Internet law—also referred to as Cyber Law—covers issues related to the Internet, software, and technology. Many of these issues crossover into traditional IP areas such as trademark law, copyright infringement, patent law and defamation.

We can help where Internet Law and Intellectual Property intersect

The number of Cyber attacks are increasing daily – from influencing major elections to crippling businesses overnight, the role and number of online attacks effecting our daily lives is increasing.  In fact, billionaire investor Warren Buffett claims that cyber attacks are the biggest threat to mankind and that they are bigger than threats from nuclear weapons.

Microsoft claims that the potential cost of cyber attacks across the globe is 500 billion with a data breach against an average business costing 3.8 million dollars.

Many of these attacks come in many forms including viruses, loss of data, trade secrets, illegal downloading or copying of content, internet defamation, counterfeiting of products or identity, cybersquatting, website and social media issues including SEO influencer campaigns, cyber attacks, trademark dilution and computer hacking.
