The rapid development of the Internet has created new business
opportunities together with additional legal risks. Creating or revising
a website that has already been launched can create a host of potential
legal issues. Different websites offer diverse and widespread content
through text, photos, group discussions, user comments and forms of advertising
(e.g. text, pop-up and banner ads), and may offer a variety of content
such as portals, search engines, auction sites or retail sites. Every
website will have unique variables and will raise different legal issues.
At Ellen B. Shankman & Associates, we help ensure that the relevant
issues are considered in such areas as copyright, trademark, right of
publicity, defamation, privacy and false advertising, and we assist in
litigation strategy when problems arise. Our unparalleled experience in
Israel with Internet issues and domain strategies allows us to counsel
clients on the creation and implementation of domain name strategy. We
also advise on regulatory and marketplace changes and we represent clients
in domain name disputes.
