3D Internet Law
"With the adoption of the 3D Internet comes new legal issues—and we’re just beginning to see what they are. For instance, do items of virtual 'property' constitute legally recognizable property, with rights and obligations that go along with property law? What happens when conduct in games or virtual worlds infringe—or at least appear to infringe—intellectual property rights? What governments or sets of courts have jurisdiction over behavior in 3D Internet applications? All of these legal questions, and many more still await definitive answers. In the meantime, we have only limited legal precedents, statutory law, and regulations to guide companies hosting 3D applications, businesses establishing presences in virtual worlds, and users. The hosting companies have created their own private law by way of contract through their online 'terms of service,' which they hope will be enforced in court. Public and private law, however, still leave many gaps, and many legal questions remain unanswered. This blog will address the legal issues involved in virtual worlds and massively multiplayer online games and answer some of those unanswered questions."

E-Discovery Law Insights
"Our goal is to provide fresh insights not just on where the law has gone, with new decisions, new rules, trends, and other developments, but also on where the law looks to be going and where it should go, at least in our view.

Payment Law Advisor
"The payments industry continues to undergo dynamic change along many dimensions—for example, the macroeconomic environment, product design and value propositions, tender types, technology, the identity and number of market participants, corporate and portfolio transactions, the role of the networks, legislation and regulations, and even the underlying regulatory paradigm. At the same time, many processes, requirements and other features of the industry remain relatively unchanged. The DWT Payments Team addresses these changes and continuities every day, leveraging our many years of industry experience and our presence on both coasts and in China. With paymentlawadvisor, we offer commentary on new developments that seem particularly significant, as well as resources that we believe can be helpful to others who are tasked with anticipating, understanding and addressing these developments."
