Seminar No. Time Type
E-Commerce Law 22 1:15 - 2:45 pm Law & Ethics

While the Internet creates business opportunities, it also exposes individuals or firms doing business on the Internet to risks. One risk is being sued in a jurisdiction other than where they live. This seminar will cover the tests that Courts in other jurisdictions have imposed to determine whether they have jurisdiction, the measures to avoid or reduce the risks and whether there are new types of claims against professionals as a result of doing business on the Internet. Secondly, Web sites may contain trademarks and copyrighted information and individuals may possess electronic files which contain proprietary information - both of which are susceptible to theft or damage. This section will explore the individual or firms rights in the event of the above.
