Law firm launches service to help companies keep their websites legal

Law firm Edge and Ellison has launched WebVet, a new service that will enable companies to ensure their web sites do not break the law. For a fixed fee, Edge and Ellison will carry out a number of checks on the site as well as advising about the latest legal and regulatory developments. The service includes checks on copyright and trademark notices, a check for missing disclaimers and checks on whether the content of the website is likely to be subject to prosecution under any European or US laws. Commenting on the launch of the new service, Edge & Ellison partner Robert Wegenek said: "In carrying out a survey of company websites we found that they frequently make use of outside images and materials which are subject to trade mark, copyright or licensing agreements. If these have not been checked properly, companies are risking litigation in the UK and abroad. WebVet is specifically designed to reduce this risk and ensure that company web sites are legally secure."
