IT Law encompasses not only contract law concerning IT systems and IT outsourcing but also the law of electronic commerce, data protection, telecommunication and IP law.

Our attorneys are covering all essential areas of IT Law, such as contracts for the assignment of software and software licensing agreements, matters of e-commerce, patenting of computer-implemented inventions and Internet law, in particular domain name law and copyright law. 

The patent attorneys of BARDEHLE PAGENBERG have a special and long-time focus on information technology. For example, we are protecting inventions relating to XML databases, SOA software, enterprise systems, graphical programming interfaces or the design of user interfaces for telecommunication devices.

In the field of software licensing law we are advising German and international enterprises as well as start-up companies that are developing software programs and internet platforms. German and European copyright law is showing a number of specific particularities in software licensing, a field of business that is strongly influenced by the Anglo-American licensing practice.
