Before launching your e-commerce site it is recommended that you contact an IT attorney to discuss the legal issues that can impact on you via the website.
Websites can be the subject of legal disputes and many of them have been scrutinised by the courts for many years in relation to a range of different legal issues. For example, websites can be the subject of copyright claims, allegations of misleading and deceptive conduct and breaches of consumer law. Having an IT attorney check the website and explain to you how to reduce your commercial risk through your website can be very valuable.
If you are considering launching an e-commerce site, please feel free to contact one of our IT attorney by telephone or through this website and we will be happy to discuss your legal issues with you, with a view to resolving them efficiently and effectively.
A good IT lawyer should also be able to review marketing content that you plan to use on your e-commerce website to ensure that it complies with applicable law and does not result in claims for misrepresentation, among other things.
If you are launching an e-commerce site that is a software as a service platform, there are further legal issues that should be addressed by your IT lawyer, such as the subscription to the platform by customers, ownership of intellectual property, limitation of liability, ownership of data and other important legal issues.
There are many other legal considerations that need to be addressed when launching an online platform that only an experienced IT attorney can effectively address.
