About Idealaw

Idealaw is an IT news, IT law analysis and information site for people in the Australian IT, gaming and online industries.

Technology changes fast (as you well know) – a good idea today can become a billion dollar company in under 5 years. IT law has no choice but to adapt, and it is increasingly difficult to know where you stand legally, particularly when the internet is involved.

Idealaw was previously a specialist IT law firm, but has now changed its form to become a hub for IT news, lT law analysis and information for people working in the IT sector.

Idealaw’s editorial team are legal consultants to the IT Industry and practice across different law firms. Our contributors are not your traditional lawyers:  They know IT and the online world inside and out.

They intimately know the law relating to the internet, e-commerce, technology, and intellectual property – and how it relates to your business.

They keep pace with all of the IT cases and changes to Australian technology-related laws. They also know that technology and e-commerce travels across lines on a map – so also keep across international changes.

Idealaw’s goal is to explain the legal aspects of IT clearly, simply and with a minimum of jargon.
