Change in course

April 17, 2008 Leave a comment

Lately, I’ve been inactive in this blog, and one of the main reasons for this was my plan to obtain a Juris Doctor. After being involved in Internet businesses for the past eight years, I’ve been able to appreciate the current legal structures (or lack of) and the scarcity of good lawyers who understand what is going on in the World Wide Web.

I still remember how one of the best law firms failed to understand the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act, when my lawyer sent their client a C&D back in 2003. Much of the ignorance on Cyberlaw still permeates the legal community. And much of this is due to a lack of understanding on how the Internet works, from a consumer and commercial point of view.

I’ve just been accepted to the only Law School I was interested in, and the only one I applied to. For the next 3 and a half years, I will be building the skills necessary to put my grain of salt in the improvement of the necessary legal structures to support a safer and more efficient commercial operation through the net. So, look out for more legally oriented blog posts dealing with domains and internet business.
