In essence, e-commerce involves the buying and selling of products or services over the Internet and other computer networks. Substantial commerce has been generated in this way, resulting in new patents for such developments as electronic funds transfer, supply chain management, online transaction processing, inventory management systems, and automated data collection systems.
Due to fast growth of e-commerce, law professionals with expertise knowledge are required for drafting e-commerce related patent applications and securing patent protection for inventions regarding the use of wireless telecommunications systems, automatic teller machines, computer networks and combinations thereof in support of a wide range of e-commerce activities for businesses around the world including the India, United States, Germany and Japan.
E-commerce practice also includes securing intellectual property protection and initiating and defending causes of action in courts regarding patent infringement, domain name disputes and cyberpiracy causes of action and before international domain name dispute organizations organized under the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).
