ICT Law is a distinct field of law

There is no single body of law which can be called ICT law. It is a distinct field of law that comprises elements of various branches of the law, originating under various acts or statutes of Parliament and the common law, like:
  • contract law
  • consumer protection law
  • criminal law
  • patent law
  • copyright law
  • trade mark law
  • intellectual property law
  • banking law
  • privacy and data protection law
  • freedom of expression law
  • tax law
  • telecommunications law
  • work or labour law
  • the law of evidence
It includes contentious and non-contentious matters. And also civil and criminal matters. It is for these reasons that we sometimes tell people that we are experts in all those areas of law that apply to business or government that is conducted in an electronic environment – electronic law.
