Technology Law and Legal Definition

The advance of technology has led to the formulation of new legal concepts and the expansion of traditional legal concepts, such as copyright, patent, and trademark law. The growth of commerce on the Internet has created a need for application of sales and marketing law to electronic transactions and establishment of business entities in cyberspace. Many issues such as privacy, unfair competition, and trademark/copyright infringement continue to be interpreted by courts and governing bodies. Some of the technology-related agreements relate to web site creation and hosting, software licensing, advertising in cyberspace, domain name registration, and many others.
