Could China’s Internet Courts Work in the US?

December 3, 2018, Legaltech News

Robert Williams is quoted in Legaltech News regarding how China’s Internet Courts could provide a model to improve U.S. courts' inefficiencies. Mr. Williams said the Internet Courts can be useful for addressing online copyright infringement and domain name cyber squatting. He says, “The Internet Courts provide a useful set of tools to help address these disputes that might otherwise be too burdensome, time-consuming, or expensive to litigate.”


He also discussed the Hangzhou Internet Court’s decision to allow blockchain-stored evidence, saying, “The Hangzhou Internet Court held recently that an evidence-preservation platform that stores time stamped records on a public blockchain meets the legal standard for reliable digital evidence. This case empirically demonstrates that the evidence collection techniques allowed in the Internet Court rules can significantly reduce costs and allow certain infringements to be addressed that may otherwise not have been cost-effective to pursue.”
