Internet and Technology laws is a young and dynamic field of law that has probably formed and developed over the last decade more than any other legal field. If in the past, the publication of a ruling in the field caused a significant stir in the community of lawyers specializing in this field, currently hardly a day goes by without the courts releasing a ruling that touches upon issues of Internet and Technology laws.
Some of the issues in the field have already been regulated by legislation. The Computer Law that was enacted in 1995 defines and details computer crimes. The Electronic Signature Law from 2001 allows the execution of contracts and agreements using the internet network. The Copyright Law from 2007 included sections pertaining to protection of computer programs and Amendment number 40 to the Communications Law pertains to the prohibition against sending spam emails, text messages and IVRs.
However, there a constant gap remains between the legal world and the developing technology. Crucial legal issues, such as the liability of service suppliers and website managers to the wrongs and infringements committed by web surfers and the right to privacy on the internet, have yet to receive the legislator’s attention, and the courts often have to determine these matters by relying on foreign law.
