About us

The International Association of IT Lawyers contributes to the role of IT law in international relations and aims to promote the comparative study of IT law.

To fulfil these goals, we aim to undertake activities as follows:

1) To promote and support the exchange of ideas between practitioners, scholars and students of IT law across the world.

2) To raise funds for the purpose of enabling practitioners, scholars and students to attend conferences across the world.

3) To encourage practitioners, scholars and students of IT law to engage more fully with the IT industry, policymakers and members of the general public to become more fully involved with the way IT affects the law, policy and the way IT is used.

4) To keep members up-to-date with details of conferences and related activities.

We have received reports that the IAITL is being fraudulently used by unidentified Canadian and American mafias operating in the US and Canada engaging in money laundering. They title the letters: Random British lotto, Global draw and probably many other names.

Real or unreal Victims allegedly file their reports at http://www.ripoffreport.com/organized-crime/the-international-as/the-international-association-9452b.htm

Anybody can file a fraudulent report with Ripoff even with intention to defame a company. ALL complaints remain public and unedited. This group does not remove reports even when they contain false and defamatory statements. This company hides under the safe harbour protection (US Communication Decency Act) shielding them from liability for the speech of third parties.

The complaints are all anonymous so that anybody can make a false statement and hide under the cloak of anonymity. This Rip-Off group claims the victim of the false report can file a rebuttal. This group claims they will not remove false reports for money, but a closer look of the website reveals that in order to have the false reports removed, the organisation is encouraged to seek Arbitration with their designated arbitrators for an initial fee of $2000.00. This sounds like a rip-off!
