Internet Law is a developing area of law that incorporates many traditional legal fields (e.g., Intellectual Property Law, Contracts, Corporate Law) in addressing the needs arising out of the spread of the Internet.  Common legal issues arising in this field include disputes over domain names, preventing the transmission of copyrighted works, protecting intellectual property in electronic format, thwarting cyber-terrorism, and many more.  The world is becoming an increasingly connected place, and legal opportunities will continue to increase and present themselves in the coming years.
