Software, internet & e-commerce

Internet law

Over the past twenty years, the Internet has profoundly and definitively changed our society. Yet it remains a very recent and in a way immature medium. This is reflected, among other things, in the great legal uncertainty in some matters and the speed with which things evolve.

Questions about privacy and social media, about whether or not to legally download, cloud computing and domain name grabbing provide a lot of hot legal issues. Sirius Legal not only closely monitors these evolutions, but also puts them into practice.

We closely follow new phenomena such as the Internet of Things, the use of drones, new forms of online marketing such as marketing automation, voice assistants and the like. When the EU is working on geo-blocking rules or on new privacy and data protection rules under the GDPR and ePrivacy regulation, Sirius Legal is the first to pick this up.
