Technology, Media and Telecommunications

They have become somewhat notorious: IT projects that ultimately fail after many months and sometimes years of implementation. The costs associated with those projects are often many times higher than projected or the promised benefits are not delivered. In order to assure a different outcome, Yspeert tries to get involved as early as possible. Is a proper contract concluded? Who owns the intellectual property rights? Is a license issued? What does the Service Level Agreement state? What is arranged regarding privacy? We advise our clients throughout the whole duration of the implementation process.

IT law covers various areas of law, including but not limited to, contract law, privacy law and intellectual property law. With the advent of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), the privacy aspects must also be explicitly taken into account when designing software.

We give advice on, among other, the following legal issues:

  • Software;
  • Source codes;
  • Programming;
  • Escrow;
  • Privacy related matters;
  • Service Level Agreement (SLA);
  • Licensing;
  • the drafting and/or assessment of IT contracts;
  • E-commerce;
  • The General Data Protection Regulation;
