Information- Communication- and Technology (ICT) Law in SwitzerlandICT includes the areas of the information technologies (IT) and communication technologies, whose importance has strongly grown in the last decade. The increasing merger of the data, information and communication technology implicates that the legal ascertainment of life circumstances requires a substantiated comprehension of the technological principles and correlations.
Under the expression "IT Law" (or „ICT Law“) a new legal area of expertise starts to establish itself in the field of computer science, internet and telecommunication. The digitalisation of data, the rapid developments in the field of mobile telephony und their general legal framework are complex and linked, making it impossible to classify the arising questions to a single classical branch of the intellectual property law. IT law not only reaches into the areas of software law, trademark and domain name law, but also rises questions in the fields of contract law, administration and data protection law. Likewise problems arise for example concerning advertising and liability law.
