Abstract

Since the popularisation of the world wide web, lawyers, legislators and judges have been constantly challenged with applying traditional legal concepts in the untamed realm of cyberspace. . . . Two issues that have recently reared their heads again post a challenge to applying traditional intellectual property regimes in cyberspace: whether, first, the employment of meta-tags incorporating famous names or, second, the establishment of undesired links, in any way infringe any of the established intellectual property regimes. This article seeks to study and analyse the experiences in the United States and United Kingdom whilst at the same time providing a local perspective. It is hoped that this exercise will raise awareness amongst lawyers as to the need for an intimate knowledge of both the law and the technology involved to ensure a satisfactory resolution of these and other novel issues thrown up by the internet.
