Computer & Internet Law

When technological creativity meets legal creativity.

New media channels, mobile technologies and the internet allow companies and individuals to have their voices heard in the global discussion more than ever. The publication and distribution of our messages have never been faster or so efficient. This fast and borderless exposure entails exceptional opportunities for growth and innovation. However, more and more businesses are learning that this exposure might also carry a hefty price tag. In recent years, many companies, large and small, experienced the burden of responsibility resulting from unexpected risks in the digital sphere. Here are a few recent examples:

European court: Google must grant the right to be forgotten.

Internet privacy? Research reveals how easy it is to track internet users.

Stole his spouse's Facebook account and was found guilty of a crime.

220m shekel claim against the founders of Waze: sold maps they did not own.
