What is internet law? Great question. The answer of course is different depending on who you speak with. An internet law attorney deals with special laws governing the internet every day, and also has to navigate the back-end DNS system, ICANN, WHOIS and other data systems which can help any client with an issues arising online on the web.

The better question is why should you hire an attorney who specializes in internet law. Having dealt with attorneys who know a lot about, for instance, trade marks, but know little about how the internet works, it is always better to find an attorney who knows both about the substantive law and the back-end technology of the internet.
