Noam Shemtov

  • Comparative approach offers detailed analysis of legal provisions across the US, EU, and UK.
  • Topical discussion of issues recently addressed in high instance courts which will remain at the heart of the copyright debate surrounding computer software.
  • Offers guidance on adjusting legal protection to a range of software license models, including traditional types such as shrinkwrap, clickwrap, and browsewrap, as well as newer cloud infrastructure.
  • Focuses on applicability of trade marks and trade dress protection to software's "look and feel", which is increasingly crucial as providers move into a cloud environment.
