It is our contention that the internet (a/k/a “world-wide-web) is the way of the future. Now, smart devices are taking off more than ever. The progression of the smart phone in a mere ten years has been a modern miracle. The internet touches our lives in ways we could never imagine, and will continue to change the future in many ways. However, with the future and a constantly evolving internet, comes along uncertainties, and a need to use it in a secure and efficient way. With that need, comes an area that could be described as Internet Law or Cyberspace Law, which is a category of law with attorneys who use the rules in new ways to address the issues.
Internet and Cyberspace laws are terms that encapsulate the legal issues related to use of communicative, transactional, and distributive aspects of computer information systems and technologies. In general, the internet comprises of commercial, educational, governmental, and international networks, all of which use the same set of communication protocols.
It is less a distinct field of law in the way that property or contract is, as it is a domain covering many rules and regulations. It is constantly evolving as individuals press the limits of the law, and law makers and judicial officers do their best to adapt. While this may overlap with facets of law, such as venue, jurisdiction, choice of laws, however, it expands much wider. Instead of a person looking into your backyard or hopping the fence, it involves drones and web cameras. Instead of individuals shouting defaming statements on the street, they publish them on Twitter or other forums. Indeed, the internet has created exclusive issues (e.g., cloud computing, crowdfunding, cyberpiracy, cyberfraud, cybersecurity, e-commerce, e-discovery, online privacy, net neutrality, spam) as well as extensive complications with free speech, intellectual property, and technological innovation.
