Internet Lawyer: Internet Attorney: Internet Law Firm: An Internet Law Attorney Discusses Specialized Laws Governing the Internet

« Cohen v Facebook: Internet Class Action for Social Media Advertising | Main | An Internet Lawyer Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada »

March 01, 2011


It is funny going up against an old school attorney who barely understands the internet with an online issue. The laws governing the internet are one thing. Understanding the internet and how it works is another. If your lawyer does not understand both the law and the web, you are in serious trouble. It woudl be like hiring an attorney to assist you in a court case where they have no idea how the court system works.

One problem is that courts and judges treat issues arising on the internet law differently. There is so little case precedent, that outcomes can be inconsistent. It will take years before legal decisions are consistent enough to provide better certainty on outcomes in internet law cases.
