Information Technologies

If our society were to be described in any way, it would be as the “Information Society”. The boost suffered for information technologies (IT) in the last decades has been overwhelming and affects every single aspect of our daily routine.

Massive deployment of the Internet is already a reality and IP in all its aspects is likewise affected. In these terms the digital environment has become a new scenario for IP enforcement. The new international dimension pictured by worldwide availability of online content imposes new challenges for IP attorneys and end users.

Internet has created a complete parallel world that imposes new peculiarities to be taken into account for the proper defence of IP rights. IT technologies have boosted new business models based on online exploitation of IP rights. On the other side of the coin, the Internet also provides potential IP rights infringers with plenty of new ways in which to operate in detriment of the legitimate right holders.
