IT, E-Commerce and Media Law

IT law is one of the newest areas of legal expertise and, in these times of ever-increasing digitalization, it is becoming more and more important. It comprises a multitude of legal fields, from copyright law, trademark and domain law to data protection issues. In times like the present, in which the importance of social media is constantly increasing, media law is also gaining in significance.
