Cloud Services Law

The adoption of cloud services in the international business environment is driven by a need for organisations to cut costs and to provide mobile working solutions for their employees. The COVID-19 pandemic and the shift to remote working has highlighted the importance of cloud services as a tool to ensure business continuity in the digital age.

The twoBirds Cloud Services Law Site provides concise answers to a range of legal issues associated with cloud service provision on a country by country basis, via our Country Comparison Tool. Cloud services are inherently non-geographical but are subject to legal rules on a country-by-country basis. This leads to complexities in understanding the legal environment that apply to cloud services provision.

Updated in 2021, the Cloud Services Law Site considers issues of applicable law, consumer protection, data protection, data portability, intellectual property, liability, ownership of data, security, and the use of the cloud by the public sector.

It also aims to give a comparative approach to commonly asked legal questions in these fields for the 22 countries that we have covered these include:

  • Australia
  • China
  • Czech Republic
