Internet Law

Starting back in 1996, when the internet was in its infancy, Oppenheim Law was one of the first law firms in the State of Florida to actually have a website. In fact, back in those days there were no web designers and the law firm had to engage an architect who was moonlighting as a web designer.

Interestingly, Roy Oppenheim himself, an early adapter to email and the internet, obtained one of the shortest email addresses on the internet: roy@gate.net. In fact, Mr. Oppenheim continues to use that personal email address to this day. Further, the law firm ended up selling its original web domain of www.oppenheim.com in an interesting and well-publicized transaction that ended up being highlighted in the National Law Journal in the year 2000.

Since that time, the Firm has regularly been engaged in representing companies and individuals who have used the Internet to further promote their business. At times the Firm has even had to be engaged in cases where an individual’s likeness was inappropriately used on a Facebook page. In addition, the firm has represented brokers of websites who have bought and sold URL addresses, and individuals who have wanted unflattering information removed from the net and Google in particular. Further, the Firm has negotiated various web design contracts that involve the ownership of the intellectual property of the sites and has also developed the terms of use for various new Internet startups. We have also been involved with the representation of app developers, and the merger and sale of such apps.

As the Firm itself is constantly involved with internet-related matters, Oppenheim Law is probably one of our largest ongoing clients in regards to internet-related issues. Thus, should you be engaged in commerce on the Internet (and who isn’t today?), we encourage you to call us so that you are properly represented.

If you or your company is seeking legal representation for any Internet-related legal matters, please contact us online or by phone at 954-384-6114 to schedule a consultation.
