Intellectual Property and Legal Issues Surrounding Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing is a relatively new term used to describe a general approach to providing computing services through a communications network, typically the Internet. Whole sectors of the application service provider industry, both for enterprise-level and consumer-level applications, take advantage of cloud computing resources. Those who provide legal services to either providers of cloud computing services, or consumers of cloud computing services, would be well-advised to understand the technical and business background of cloud computing, how cloud computing can change traditional software services, what some of the major new risk and legal issues are, and how fundamental or traditional legal doctrines can be applied to this new mode of computing.
