As an organisation which values and promotes innovation in e-commerce within our own internal systems, Wrays has applied this knowledge to our clients.
Our e-commerce team advise clients on IT procurement contracts as core business of our organisation. Our firm has significant expertise in licensing, software development, software maintenance, and source code escrow arrangements.
We have also assisted our clients with issues such as:
- cybersecurity and phishing, especially for organisations which receive funds online as part of their business model. Nadia Mansour, a special counsel with our organisation, was previously responsible for dealing with phishing threats to the Bank of Western Australia and is very experienced in issues for financial institutions;
- ownership of metadata. A recent copyright decision in Australia has made it plain that information aggregated by a computer is not capable of copyright protection, and we have worked with our clients to mitigate the risks involved to their business as a consequence of this;
- disaster recovery. David Stewart, a partner of our firm, assisted Racing and Wagering Western Australia in a copyright dispute with a German software supplier over copyright issues arising out of replication of the software on a back-up server, resulting in the decision of Racing & Wagering Western Australia v Software AG (Australia) Pty Ltd  FCA 1332 (29 August 2008);
- online defamation (on sites such as Facebook and Twitter), online misleading and deceptive conduct, and mis-use of trade marks online.
