There is no question!

Nowadays, Internet is an integral part of human life, affecting various aspects of society in its unique way, which we have never witnessed before. Since its inception, the Internet has caused people to re-define the concept of “borders”, “national territories” and other social phenomena such as virtual reality, augmented reality, bitcoin, virtual assets, e-wallets, fintech etc. Interestingly, the intrusions of these Internet entities impact on human’s real world and incur legal problems. As a matter of fact, the Internet does not “sleep”. It does not distinguish between “day” and “night”. The Internet has unchanged existence, independence of geographic location, or country in which you are accessing; exists in a consistent figuration, digitalized and the Internet is gradually making the whole world flat.


Along with the Internet is legal framework of Internet. Since there is the legal area, although it shares the same nature and functions as Civil Law, Criminal Law, business - commerce, banking finance, marriage - family, etc., there are huge gaps among them. This disparity is expressed both in the foundation, enforcement of the law and in the implementation of the law by each organization, citizen and enterprise.

As an inevitable consequence, legal consultation, litigation or the provision of other legal services based on the Internet, everything needs its specific norms, in accordance with the connection between the virtual world and the real world, with the invisible, borderless nature of the Internet. Lawyers, in addition to life experience, consulting skills and conventional legal knowledge, need to enhance their own knowledge related to the Internet law, be familiar with “virtual reality”, “virtual assets”, “smart contracts”, “Big data”, “blockchain” in order not to be sudden while any entities come out of the virtual world and place us in appropriately transactions or interaction.
