The importance of modern information and communication has increased enormously in almost all business areas. In terms of rapid technical developments, there are constantly widenings and diverse application possibilities, which lead to increased convergence of the new media. The development of legislation could hardly take account of the rapid progress of technology in the past. Meanwhile, there is a wide range of legal provisions, but they are far less known than laws in other areas.
