FL cyber attorneyWith a rapidly changing economic landscape comes new opportunities. Unfortunately, new challenges and conflicts are also inevitable. Cyber law is defined as any law that relates to the internet and internet-related technologies. With the increase in internet use for both businesses and everyday citizens, conflicts involving the internet have risen astronomically over the past few decades. Whether you are a business owner that is either just starting their business or just transitioning into the world of cyber marketing, or a civilian being harassed on the Internet, a cyber law attorney can help resolve any conflict you may be facing. Below we will examine just a few of the ways in which a cyber law attorney can assist you.

Assisting Your Business

In the world of business, the rise in internet use has drastically changed the way in which corporations operate. Today many consumers shop primarily via the web, making the need for a strong cyber presence essentially paramount to the company’s success. Unfortunately with the rise in internet technology, there has come a rise in conflicts. Domain and copyright disputes are incredibly common for companies looking to move into internet sales. Due to the newer nature of most cyber-related agreements, some companies will look to use unclear language to get other parties to agree to unfair or unlawful online contracts. The rise in technology has also changed the way in which information is stored and lead to new ways in which corporations can steal information from other businesses, leading to a rise in intellectual property disputes. If a conflict with your business arises, you need to speak with a skilled attorney immediately.

Personal Conflicts

Unfortunately, people in the world of cyber marketing are not the only ones that face internet-related conflicts. Many everyday civilizations are harassed on the internet and have no idea where to turn after the altercation. Both cyberstalking and cyberbullying can impact a person’s emotional and psychological health. Cyberstalking is simply when one uses the internet to stalk or harass another party. This harassment could come in the forms of identity theft, sexual solicitations, or threats. Cyberbullying is incredibly common among the youth of America, and the emotional ramifications of cyberbullying are well documented. If you or a family member are being harassed on the internet, it is time to seek out professional help.

b2ap3_thumbnail_attorney.jpgCyber law cases are unique, from the proceedings to the violations. Due to the nuanced nature of many cyber law cases, even the most minor violations can represent the difference between a case being lost or won. This is especially true as it pertains to electronic discovery. Electronic discovery simply refers to discoveries made in a legal proceeding (such as a government investigation or simple litigation), in which the information is in digital form. Because of the intangible nature of electronic discovery, it is treated much differently than paper evidence. The most common forms of electronic discovery include emails, various file types, and other types of electronic documents. Below we will discuss the way in which a skilled attorney can assist you during the electronic discovery process.

How a Cyber Law Expert Can Help

In cases involving electronic discovery, the presence of a quality legal professional can make or break your case. First and foremost, a skilled attorney will go through an extensive research process, examining documents, emails, and any form of electronic discovery that could benefit or harm your case. A knowledgeable attorney will also be cognizant of the role that megadata can play in the electronic discovery process. For instance, the dates and times at which a document was filed can be critically important in a trademark, copyright, or domain name case.

A competent attorney will also ensure that all relevant electronic discovery has been properly collected and preserved. Proving that an opposing side has destroyed relevant information can be a direct violation of the preservation process in all electronic discovery processes. A party could also be in violation if they do not transfer the information to their legal counsel as the information was found. Failure to recognize and identify these violations could result in a lost case.
