E-commerce and domain names - website

Doing business on-line – the right way.

From the front room to the board room, online business (e-commerce) is a significant contributor to New Zealand's economic prosperity. 

E-commerce is not just about domain names and websites.  There’s a whole lot more traders in the online space need to consider.  Privacy, spam, online security – not to mention trade mark and copyright rights – are all issues those engaged in e-commerce need to consider. Top of the list though is your domain name – the right domain name is worth its weight in gold.

We have attorneys who can provide targeted advice on a range of issues including:

  • Domain names – from searching to strategy, registration to recovery as well as prosecuting and defending complaints
  • Trade Marks – not only use of your mark but use of others’ as well – be it to advertise goods or use as Google AdWords or metatags
  • Patents – are the goods you’re selling infringing someone’s patent? You never know unless you check
  • Copyright – who owns the copyright in your website design and the photographs of the products you’re selling?
  • Commercial – terms and conditions, privacy policies, parallel

"Each time I talked with them was a buzz because not only did they get it, they also threw in ideas to improve the product, advised options to protect it and space to think and decide.  Best of all, they seemed just as excited as I was about Tika.  "
