In order to promote its company and its products or services, nowadays it is essential to be present on the internet through a website. It can also act as a distribution channel when the website includes a merchant platform.
If the sole reservation of domain names cannot be faulty (except for a few proven cases of use of another one's trademark), the uploading of a website involves making sure that no infringement of anterior rights is caused and that the legal obligations related to the online commerce in particular are respected.
Otherwise, you are exposed to often severe sanctions (CNIL, DGCCRF ...) and a risk of having to modify everything that has already been done (choice of brand and domain names, website, communication media etc.)
It is therefore necessary to define from the beginning a strategy for covering the ground on the Internet and to be well informed regarding all legal obligations incumbent on you as an online economic player.
