Abstract: The use of new information technologies can create several sorts of problems and difficulties of a legal nature, for example those relating to intellectual property rights, threats to the security of systems and data, and product liability. This raises questions of the protection of the company's interests on the one hand, and protection of the individual's interests on the other. The author argues that a successful strategy for managing information technology must make due consideration of the legal aspects.
