We handle all types of IP claims, including in combination with related claims of contract disputes and unfair practices. Kaçar’s litigation practice covers all aspects of intellectual property disputes, from trademark infringements, copyright and licensing disputes, internet domain names infringements to unfair competition and unfair advertising cases.
As technologies and the business methods adopting them advance, data privacy is an area of increasing importance for all businesses. In Turkey, data privacy is regulated under Law on Protection of Personal Data (Law No. 6698) which is mainly based on the principles set out in 95/46 EC Directive and sets out rules for legal collection, storage, processing and transfer of personal data. We advise multinational and domestic clients on Law No. 6698 and relevant regulations and ensure them comply with the requirements.
We provide on-going advice on IP based transactions, trademark registrations, software and licensing contracts, domain names and outsourcing transactions.
The Internet has forever changed the way businesses operate today and it brings a changing legal environment impacting businesses. In order to enable our clients to be ready for this new world, we provide legal assistance on drafting Internet agreements and web policies and supporting their investments in online businesses.
