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.
  • Microsoft Corporation v Kevin Hertz, et. al.
  • 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
  • Disney Enterprises, Inc. et al. v, et. al.

Andrew Jaffe has been a trial attorney since 1977. In the last six years his practice has been only Internet law. He as advised and counseled clients across the United States on the guidelines presented in cyberspace law. Jaffe offers the following services in Internet legal issues; Internet privacy policies, terms of service, copyright and trademark issues on the Internet, disputes about domains, can-spam litigation, telemarketing rules and ISP relationships.

Harrison Barnes is the legal profession's mentor and may be the only person in your legal career who will tell you why you are not reaching your full potential and what you really need to do to grow as an attorney--regardless of how much it hurts. If you prefer truth to stagnation, growth to comfort, and actionable ideas instead of fluffy concepts, you and Harrison will get along just fine. If, however, you want to stay where you are, talk about your past successes, and feel comfortable, Harrison is not for you.

Truly great mentors are like parents, doctors, therapists, spiritual figures, and others because in order to help you they need to expose you to pain and expose your weaknesses. But suppose you act on the advice and pain created by a mentor. In that case, you will become better: a better attorney, better employees, a better boss, know where you are going, and appreciate where you have been--you will hopefully also become a happier and better person. As you learn from Harrison, he hopes he will become your mentor.
