The law relating to the internet and online telecommunications is often referred to by the abbreviated form of “cyberlaw”. Many of the concepts that operate in cyberlaw cases are actually not that new. However, the manner in which they have been applied has changed due to the increasing prevalence of computers among the general population and how this new medium has impacted on everyday communication, business and entertainment.
Cyberlaw was once an exotic area of practice catering to a niche clientele. It is however becoming increasingly difficult to imagine an activity that does not somehow involve computer technology.
Some concepts in cyberlaw may still be relatively fresh and lack proper legal definition. This is testimony to how rapidly the field is expanding as the law tries to keep up with innovations and development. Nevertheless, the common law tradition allows the law to evolve as the context within which it exists changes with time. Our experienced IT lawyers have the skills necessary to help guide a client through the jungle of rules, regulation, principles, concepts and maxims.
In addition to assisting clients with cyberspace law issues that may arise, our experienced team of lawyers has also assisted clients with the development and production of marketing material and online content, through an application of cyberlaw and other legal principles. Our cyberlaw and marketing team can assist clients with a broad range of services, including the following services:
- Client Terms and Conditions
- Contractor Agreements
- Copyright and Pirating
- Cyberbullying and Harassment
- Defamation on the Internet
- Freedom of Information
- Hacking, Phishing & Phreaking
- Internet Fraud
- Privacy Policies
- Referrer Agreements
- Social Media Policies
- Spam Act
- Website Disclaimers
- Website Disclosure Policies
- Website Privacy Policies

Some of types of matters that we are able to handle include, for example, application of ancient copyright concepts to the web as well as web based entities, online fraud matters, unwanted and intrusive email and web (“pop up”) communications, instances of defamation and harassment on web based platforms, access to information held by public bodies, user privacy concerns, as well as unauthorised access to information stored on computers.
We can also assist clients who are establishing new businesses and requiring assistance with marketing documentation such as the drafting of Website Terms and Conditions, Disclaimers, Disclosure Policies, Compliance Policies, Privacy Statements. We can also generally review a client’s website and provide general legal advice on the extent to which the website complies with Australian law. Because we have assisted many clients with such matters, we are able to perform this work cost effectively and cost efficiently, usually at fixed fees.
Other matters may also arise under the rubric of cyberlaw. Many of these are far from trivial and should therefore not be taken lightly. Should anybody find themselves in a position where they think they may become a party to legal proceedings involving any of these concepts, it is strongly encouraged that legal advice be obtained as soon as possible. Time may be of the essence and delays may only exacerbate damage and amplify the seriousness of the matter.
If you believe that you need assistance with a potential cyberlaw or marketing law matter, feel free to contact our cyberlaw and marketing team and discuss your matter with our team, so that we can determine how we can be of assistance.
