IT and E Commerce
The expansion of electronic trading has brought a raft of new laws, governing distance contracts and web trading with businesses and consumers. Most businesses today rely on information technology such as PC software.
Every business should ensure that its web-based activities (ranging from a "brochure" website to an interactive site for trading) comply with new laws, and long-established laws protecting trade marks, and copyright in layout, logos, photos, and text. Domain names should not infringe existing trade marks. Prudent businesses will ensure that their use of software is set out in clear contracts.
We have experience of all types of IT and E-Commerce transactions. We also provide an "Escrow Service" whereby the source code of software is held to enable a user to maintain his essential software in circumstances when the owner is no longer able to do so.
