• IT/digital media law is very relevant to every business today and conflicting regulation rather than lack of regulation is nowadays more often the problem when it comes to issues on the World Wide Web. It is crucial to be aware of all the prevailing (international) regulation when licensing software, creating a web-site or using a domain name, and often there is a great overlap with IP law in this area.
