Internet law

As it is clear from the name itself, the Internet law regulates relations on the Internet, which can arise in almost any area and in any form. This can be like spreading false information about a product or service on various Internet resources, illegal use of domain names, illegal placement of intellectual property objects (music, etc.) on the network, copyright infringement, and much more.

  • Protection of honor, dignity and business reputation

  • Legal regulation of the website (processing of personal data, public offer, drafting the terms of the privacy policy and use of the website)

Internet law refers to the legislation and legal principles that exist regarding the use of the Internet in all forms.

Unlike other areas of law, Internet law cannot be defined as a concrete, stable and durable area of practice. Instead, it applies principles and incorporates rules from a number of different traditional areas, including contract law and intellectual property law, crime and other industries.

Internet law can include topics such as:

  • Creating links to web pages
  • Resolving conflicts over domain names
  • Use of trademarks on the Internet
  • ISP Management and Website Creation

Considering the fact that the Internet is developing at a fast pace, customary law or precedent is not enough to create legal regulation in this area. This means that there is a lot of ambiguity.

The Internet has allowed those who live in many repressive countries, where freedom of speech is not a right, to rely on the masking of anonymity provided by the Internet to make their voices heard. The flourishing of the Internet has been partially attributed to many political movements around the world seeking greater access and equality, such as the Arab Spring incidents.

Of course, this leads to an inevitable reaction in the form of Internet censorship. China is one of the most persistent in its efforts to filter out unwanted parts of the Internet from its citizens, but many other countries such as Singapore, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Tunisia have also participated in such censorship.

Other topics that have been influenced by the growth of the Internet or that seem to be around the corner include areas such as privacy, intelligence gathering, fraud, cyberbullying, and cyber terrorism. As technology advances, various legal issues will emerge related to these innovations.

As for Ukraine, at the moment there is no legislation that directly regulates legal relations on the Internet, it all comes down to the analogy of applying traditional legal norms only in the field of the Internet.
