Matheson’s technology and IP law blog

Welcome to Crossfire

This blog is dedicated to technology and IP law. As on-line commerce and activity comes to dominate our daily lives, the conflict between new technologies and the law, national law and the global internet and privacy and the public domain become more and more acute. Whilst the technology is fast moving, the law struggles to keep up and courts end up trying to fit square pegs into round holes in an attempt to fill in the gaps. This blog is our attempt to help to keep you aware of the many new developments in this area as they arise and to encourage a two way dialogue.  We value your comments and interaction and look forward to an insightful and lively debate.
