An Internet technologies expert witness is a person who testifies in court on Internet-related matters. Internet technology has become an integral part of our lives and it is important to have someone knowledgeable about the subject if you plan to take your case to court.
What should I know about this?
In the United States, expert witnesses are generally called upon when there is some dispute or disagreement over facts that involve Internet-related issues like domain names, email content, cookies, robots/spiders, computer security systems (including virus protection), eCommerce transactions (including use of credit cards), social media platforms (such as Facebook) and Internet access (including DSL), among other services.
These experts are not required in every case, but when they do provide their testimony it is usually the determining factor for the outcome of a case.
