Internet Lawyer

Internet Lawyer, E-Business and Internet Start Up Attorney

Starting an Internet business involves many of the same obstacles as starting a traditional, brick and mortar business. There are, however, many unique aspects for a web business start-up. Traditional brick and mortar businesses develop and maintain a website to promote their business and make their business easy to be found, whereas an Internet businesses’ very existence is totally dependent on its presence on the Internet.

Internet Law – Where the Internet and the Law Intersect

Jeffrey Williams’ Internet Law practice focuses on where the Internet and the Law intersect. Jeffrey has found that this “new breed” of legal challenges can rarely be fully resolved by using conventional legal procedures and status-quo answers. Your Internet business’ unique one-of-a-kind Internet legal issue cannot be effectively resolved using common legal approaches. Jeffrey seeks to build solid legal frameworks that will protect you and your Internet business from exposure to unnecessary risk and insure that you and your business is in compliance with the growing body of legislation, rules and regulations.

Software and Technology Licensing

These individually developed frameworks are your business’ online and policy agreements with your customers, vendors and providers. These agreements often take the form of Software and Internet licensing, website terms of service and Fair Use Law, website privacy policies and Online Agreements. These agreements are critical tools that your Internet business needs in order to effectively and efficiently conduct your online business affairs while legally protecting yourself and your Internet business.

Jeffrey Williams is particularly interested in Internet Commerce/E-Commerce, Website Terms of Service agreements (TOS), Copyright Law and Internet and Software Licensing.

  • Internet Commerce/E-Commerce. Internet business owners need to be proactive in protecting their business as well as themselves from liability. Internet business owners also need to protect their intellectual property rights. Too often, Internet businesses pirate, without realizing the rules and consequences, of using copyrighted material. Conversely, it’s imperative to protect your own unique online content.
  • Website Terms of Use. Insuring that your Internet business’ online content is protected can take numerous forms. One effective structure is using a Website Terms of Use structure. Requiring users to agree to your Website Terms of Use can extinguish potential legal liabilities. Jeffrey stays current on Internet legal developments that may impact your Internet business so that you can focus your energies on running your business.
  • Copyright  Law. There has been a lot of pressure upon the courts to widen “the public domain”. Practically speaking this would promptly draw copyrighted works out from the copyright umbrella and these works would become available, free of charge, to the online community. January 18, 2012 the Supreme Court reversed any progress that had been made widening “the public domain”. Most importantly the Court flatly declared that the public domain is not “a category of constitutional significance”. Having a skilled and informed Attorney becomes critical as the Internet community and Internet law are changing at warp speed. Jeffrey Williams stays aware of the current developments as well as the upcoming political struggles that will likely shape the ever-changing environment of Internet Law.
  • Internet and Software Licensing. Jeffrey Williams has broad experience in the area of Internet and Software Licensing. He is knowledgeable of the intricacies of Software license agreements, End user license agreements, Software development agreements and clickwrap licenses. Often referred to as “click-through agreements” or “clickwrap licenses”, these license agreements are beneficial for executing agreements that are connected to Software Licensing.
