You have created an amazing new
scientific product called the “widget.” You have decided that an
e-business is the best way to sell your product. You will have no brick &
mortar stores. Your creative team has put together an amazing website and
domain name to market your “widget.” It contains some original intellectual
property and some that is borrowed. You meet with your lawyers to discuss the
issues of starting an e-business, protection of your product and intellectual
property issues. Your domicile is currently Delaware, but your website may be
viewed all over the world and your will ship your product anywhere.
Six months later you are off and running, unfortunately, a defective widget was
sent to a California individual who now has brought a lawsuit against you and
has also started an online blog about how you are really a child pornographer
and your widget business is just a front. Your business revenue starts to drop
significantly. You try to stop the blog but the individual claims a
Constitutional right to state his opinion, he also states that you are trying
to violate his Constitutional rights. To make matters worse a German terrorist
organization has stolen the idea for your widget (online) and is threatening to
use it for evil unless you pay them one million dollars. You call your local
police to report this.
For this project, research and discuss the issues that are presented in the
above scenario. At a minimum you will need to discuss issues of jurisdiction,
e-business, intellectual property, cybercrimes and Constitutional law.
