QS News: legal advice on extranets

Earlier this week, I met Matt Parsons of Building sister title QS News for a coffee and chat at a bar in London Bridge. He told me about a forthcoming revamp of the publication (more pages, fortnightly) and improvements to QS News’ website (rolling daily news, new blogs, podcasts).

Afterwards, I had a look at the site and registered (it’s free!). I have read the magazine occasionally since its launch last summer, but I clearly missed one useful article relevant to extranets.

On 27 January 2006, solicitor Anthony Lee (with colleague Janet Lane) of Fladgate Fielder wrote: "Avoiding the pitfalls – a guide to extranets" (probably drawing on the workshop presentation he delivered alongside me at the NCCTP conference last November), urging potential customers and users to be aware be aware of contractual issues, legal admissibility, security/confidentiality, intellectual property rights, defamation, limiting risk and anti-discrimination concerns.

A search for "extranet" related items also reveals a review of my book (see 9 December 2005 post), and my views on Autodesk’s Constructware acquisition (see also various previous posts, starting here).
