Practical Law Digital Business Global Guide 2023

The forces of digital transformation, AI, and other emerging technologies accompanied by the legal implications it presents have impending influence on organisations structure and ability to drive value.

In the latest edition of the Thomson Reuters Practical Law Digital Business Guide, Bird & Bird’s Online & Digital business experts from 15 jurisdictions address the key legal and commercial issues to consider when running a successful eCommerce business, including cybersecurity and data retention, protecting online businesses and users, data privacy, and regulatory considerations. This guide presents a sophisticated overview of matters relevant for large corporations through to small scale start-ups, based anywhere in the world to help understand the evolving requirements of digital business.

Revised for 2023, the guide includes chapters written by our teams in Australia, Belgium, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, The Netherlands, Poland, Singapore, Sweden and the UK.

The report also answers a number of interesting questions including:

  • Are there any limitations on collecting, storing, or using personal data?
  • What measures must contracting companies or internet providers take to guarantee internet transactions' security?
  • Who is liable for the content a website displays, including mistakes?
