Three types of law are involved in Cyberspace: E-Commerce Law, Internet Marketing and Web Law. These areas have become much regulated in the past six years ever since the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003. Cyberspace law covers bulk mail, web site optimization, banners or other web based marketing programs. The law has very precise provisions for the Internet users. Internet marketing is an area of law that many online businesses want to understand so they know how to run the Internet business ethically, with all legalities known up front and on the table. This is one of Andrew Jaffe's expertises.

Mr. Jaffe aids Internet marketing clients with concerns including:

  • Internet service provider relationships:
  • Anti-Spammer issues
  • Cyber squatting
  • Internet copyrighting laws
  • Trademark protection on the Internet
  • FTC Telemarketing Rules.

In addition to the above, websites need a Privacy Policy and Terms of Service which Mr. Jaffe provides at an affordable cost.

Also, when the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 passed it became easier for Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to engage companies in advertising through commercial e-mail. Since the CAN-SPAM Act many cyber companies had legal problems which could have been averted if the Internet businesses had gotten a clear understanding of the new cyberspace laws.

Mr. Jaffe has prepared seminars that clearly define for cyber businesses the Internet guidelines. His seminars give a clear understanding of guidelines around which Internet businesses should be implemented. The CAN-SPAM Act has prompted Attorney Jaffe to write ''Can-Spam'' audits for his Internet clients. Every e-mail must be within guidelines every day that they are received and sent.

Additionally, Mr. Jaffe is a trial lawyer who also provides litigation services to his cyberspace clients who were pulled into litigation since the ''Can-Spam Act''. He has defended more than 30 anti-spam cases.

Here is a list of some court cases he has defended for cyberspace clients and some of the names you will recognize if you sell on the Internet or just visit the Internet web businesses.

  • America Online, Inc. v Ambro Enterprises
  • My Space, Inc. v Joel Aguilar
  • Microsoft Corporation v KSTM, LLC, et. al.
  • State of Florida v Scott J. Filary and Donald E. Townsend
