captive insU.S. Captive Insurance Law

In 2002, the Internal Revenue Service issued three Revenue Rulings: 2002-89, 2002-90 and 2002-91. The three rulings were published at the end of a series of cases where the IRS argued that a captive insurance company--an insurance company owned by the insured--was not a legitimate insurance company, thereby making the insured's payments to the insurance company non-deductible for income tax reasons. Although the IRS was initially victorious, rulings adverse to the IRS began with the Humana decision in 1989 and continued through the end of the 1990s.

Patentable subject matters include compositions of matter, processes or procedures, articles of manufacture, machines, and any improvement of these categories. With the advent of the Internet, new items have been added to the U.S. patentable subject matter list such as online software and Internet business models. This article introduces the U.S., EU, and international approach on patentable inventions. The USCS §101 defines the patentable inventions under the U.S. law. It states that "whoever invents or discovers any new and useful process, machine, manufacture, or composition of matter, or any new and useful improvement thereof, may obtain a patent therefor, subject to the conditions and requirements of this title [35 USCS §§ 1 et seq.]"

To fight Internet piracy, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) concluded two copyright treaties in Geneva in 1996: the WIPO Copyright Treaty (WCT) and the WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty (WPPT), collectively known as the "WIPO Internet Treaties" which entered into force in 2002. The WIPO Internet Treaties set out the minimum standard of intellectual property protection with respect to the delivery of copyrighted works on the Internet. This summary will address the following questions, what copyright and related rights are protected on the Internet under the WIPO Internet Treaties, what is the purpose of the WIPO Internet Treaties, and what are the two technological adjuncts to the rights required by the WIPO Internet treaties.
internet advertisingInternet Advertising Law

The Internet is becoming a more and more popular medium for marketing. Nowadays, most companies are using the Internet to sell and advertise their products and services. The Internet permits low-cost advertising, worldwide reach, and the possibility of interactive communications with potential customers. All of these are advantages of online marketing. At the same time, online marketing has some disadvantages of its own. Before the Internet was invented, the printing industry was the most popular marketing medium. Print marketing mainly includes brochures, product catalogs, direct postal mail, product packaging, and trade journals, newspapers and magazines.

can you patent thisCan You Patent This?

Intellectual Property offers inventors quite a few ways to protect their inventions like copyrights and patents, among others. Traditionally, patent applications were related to complex mechanical, chemical, or pharmaceutical processes. With the advent of the Internet, and especially after a land marking case in the United States in 1998, an increasing number of patents have been issued to software and Internet companies that have devised new ways of doing business. Business method patents are very lucrative for Internet companies because they can stop other companies from using the patented business method for approximately 17 years. Besides, the company that owns the patent can exploit it by licensing the new method.
domain name law and disputesDomain Name Law & Disputes

It is fair to say that a domain name is a business' name and address on the Internet. Companies usually register a domain name similar or identical to their corporate name or protected trademark, or both; this facilitates their customers' search for the company. Domain name disputes arise when two parties want the same domain name. Often, this domain name is identical or confusingly similar to a trademark. Initially, these domain name-trademark disputes were solved by applying traditional domestic trademark laws. Yet the globalization of the economy and the international exposure given by the Internet, triggered the enactment of international rules to solve domain name disputes between multi-jurisdictional parties.

Internet Governance is a well-debated but unresolved issue. No government, domestic, or international organization, has been able to delimit its parameters despite rational pro and con arguments. It is fair to say that, currently, the Internet is governed by the famous French phrase: lessee faire le se passé (Let it be, let it ensue). Nevertheless, governments under their legislative and policing powers, have been prompted to regulate those specific Internet-related issues that deserve immediate intervention, imperative aspects of the Internet like the telecommunication regulations, the data retention mandate for certain cases, like Internet gambling, Child Pornography, Online Marketing, Privacy and Data Protection among others.
