Applicable law — Jurisdiction

This chapter expounds on the jurisdiction around infringement, the internet, and broadcasting. It shows how the internet is essentially a network of computers and servers that crosses borders, which then guarantees the issues of private international law. The patents underpinning the technology have attracted much more interest than the infringement of copyright and trade marks through the actions of the users of the telephone service.

The chapter highlights how intellectual property is easily exploited, used, and infringed on a cross-border and regular basis, referencing the rapid development of AI.
