Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) are increasingly intertwined in the authors' daily activities. Some of these ICT systems, services, networks and infrastructures (in short, ICT infrastructures) form a vital part of European economy and society, either providing essential goods and services or constituting the underpinning platform of other critical infrastructures. The information and communication technologies represent an essential side of the economy and European society. Apparently, their evolution has determined complex consequences also in the legal field, because the access and use of information technology have created new rights and obligations for the beneficiaries of this technical progress. This paper aims at presenting the most important legal consequences that arose from the activities through computer systems, according to EU and Romania regulations.
