THE INDUSTRY

Our Cyber and Internet practice group has accumulated decades of experience counselling clients on the law as applied to the Internet and cyberspace. Our attorneys thoroughly grasp new Internet-driven technologies and have conquered precedent-setting legal work on Internet-related issues. Representative topics we have handled in this domain include:

  • Liability of online platforms for defamatory speech, infringing material or privacy-invading content available through them.
  • Application of the laws governing circumvention of Technological Protection Measures (TPMs), to the Internet.
  • Application of the Israeli penal code to online gambling sites.
  • Guidance on websites’ compliance with the US Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and its regulatory rules.
  • Legal best practices for online distribution of software and their automatic installers.
  • Surreptitious access to Internet subscribers’ emails, by investigative authorities.
  • Application of the Israeli legal framework governing the use of encryption, to online activities.

Additionally, in recent years, regulatory agencies are becoming more attuned to cyber and cyber-security, issuing various guidelines in this realm. The legal framework governing the use of IT systems at businesses is also significantly adjusting to cyber and cyber-security. Pearl Cohen’s seasoned Cyber and Internet practice group fuses intimate knowledge of cyber law and cybersecurity regulations with deep technical and business understanding of cyber-oriented companies. We counsel clients on all legal aspects of their cyber operations and cyber-defense activities and guide them on the measures they need to take in order to comply with the legal standards applicable to their activities in cyberspace.
