IT Law: German Information Technology Law

The world of information technology (IT) is continually and rapidly changing. Therefore, it’s no surprise that so many people find it challenging to keep up. Moreover, laws and legal terms in this world of IT can be intricate and difficult to follow; from copyright issues and domain name disputes to what constitutes a cyber-crime and how the area of e-commerce is regulated. Cyber-crime is an area of crime that is becoming more and more prevalent as can be seen by research concerning the year 2017 conducted by US IT security giants Norton (Symantic). According to the research, the cost of cybercrime to people in Germany that year was approximately €2.2 billion/$2.6 billion!
