Is your company/client website legal? Do you know what information you are required by law to put on it? What if your domain name is too close to someone else's? What if someone is diverting people from your website to theirs? What are the laws on copying material from websites? What can you do with people's personal data sent to your website? This report deals with all the practical legal issues which arise with websites - both those sites which sell goods or services and those which advertise.

This Report aims to provide the reader with a full description of the areas of law which apply to websites. Most companies in the UK have a website and many do not comply with the legislation. The EU has been largely responsible for most of the legal rules which apply, from legislation on distance selling to electronic commerce and data protection with the latest changes taking effect on 13 June 2014. What is lacking is a coherent statute containing all relevant laws. Instead, businesses need to know about sale of goods law, laws relating to advertising, data protection legislation and even disability laws. This Report summarises the main legislation and provides practical guidance on how to ensure your website is legally compliant. There are over 100 countries in the world and in most of them there is Internet access. It will never be possible to check a website for compliance with all laws in all states but this should not put businesses off going on-line. There are risks in all methods of sale or advertising but in most cases they are not huge risks. Most countries require websites to be accurate and businesses to supply goods as described when they say they
will. Therefore most suppliers who are honest and whose contract conditions on the website are clear have little to fear.
