Communications and Technology

The advancement of technology has changed the world. The Internet is ever present in people’s lives and cyberlaw is at the heart of many legal issues today.

Our range of services include advising clients and acting for them in relation to their rights and obligations under the Computer Crimes Act 1997, Digital Signature Act and Copyright Amendment Act 1997. Another important piece of legislation enacted is the Personal Data Protection Act 2010 (“PDPA”) which was introduced to strengthen consumer confidence in business transactions and e-commerce, given the increase in cases of credit card fraud, identity theft and the unauthorized selling of personal data.

Upon our client’s request, we will assess the facts and provide our legal opinion and suggestions on aspects of Computer Law such as cybercrime, integrity and security of information, computer privacy and confidentiality of information as well as the legal status of online transactions.

Further, our clients will receive guidance on how to avoid inadvertently making any unauthorized transmission of copyright works over the internet which amounts to an infringement of copyright. We also brief our clients on the risks of circumventing any effective technological measures aimed at restricting access to copyright works.
