Written by a team of experts from 36 Commercial, this new title describes the developing substance of cyber litigation setting out the position as regards:
- disputes where the subject matter is data or a database
- where the subject matter is software/programming and connected IP issues
- regulatory implications and e-contracts
- internet of things
It looks at the most common causes of action in cyber litigation, including cybercrime, IP (breach of copyright, trade mark infringement etc.), data protection breaches (eg DPA, GDPR); conflict of laws considerations; alternatives to litigation, such as, the NCA Prevent scheme and situations where arbitration/mediation are mandated. It identifies the pitfalls that those working in this arena need to look out for and address in order not to become involved in litigation as well as advice for those who do find themselves involved in cyber litigation.
