Digital Commerce: Kemp IT Law Webinar

Date and Time: 09.00-10.00 (UK time), Wednesday 28 April 2021

If digital transformation is the journey and digital business is the destination, what does the legal landscape look like when we get there?

The first thing is scale: in the UK, online now accounts for 35% of retail sales* and in the US, the digital economy is now the largest sector after government, real estate and manufacturing**.

The legal and regulatory shape of the digital economy has developed rapidly over the last few years and 2021 is set to see potentially far reaching changes in the UK, EU and US.

Lawyers at top tech law practice Kemp IT Law have a wealth of expertise advising organisations large and small on the regulations, laws and contracts that apply to their own digital commerce operations and their particular digital business world. In this session we will:

  • offer our top tips on contracting for B2B and B2C digital services
  • provide an overview of the developing payment services regulatory landscape
  • give an update on the latest developments in platform to business, interpersonal communications and video sharing services and what these mean for Web 3.0
  • look ahead to the upcoming Digital Services Act (EU) and Online Harms Bill (UK)

There will be no charge for this event.
