Communications, Media, Internet and Privacy Law News

Technology presents unique challenges in the legal industry today. The National Law Review features news to help navigate the ever-evolving issues that arise because of changes in technology. We cover the latest legal news in communications and media, including Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) enforcement actions.  We have articles on telecommunications, email access, social media, cyberterrorism and cybercrime, and TCPA class actions and compliance.

The rapidly changing status of the internet is host to many new concepts and issues including the internet of things, domain name registrations (generic top-level domain names, “gTLDs”), as well as privacy issues such as data protection and cybersecurity. We report on these issues in a variety of jurisdictions covering topics such as Canadian Anti-Spam laws, EU Safe Harbor and Privacy Shield compliance. Privacy law issues span many legal industries, in particular the health care industry, where HIPAA issues, Ransomware, and telemedicine are on the rise.
