To step in the extraterritorial cyberspace means entering into an unknown and undiscovered realm. The main feature of contemporary globalization, it seems, is the fundamental reformation in the field of information; an issue which has resulted in the penetrability of territorial boundaries. On the one hand, the cyberspace has made it possible for personal computers all around the world to be connected to one another and has resulted in the advent of particular extraterritorial relations through eliminating the boundaries of time and space. In this regard, with the help of digital and satellite networks, the media are capable of circulating information within the shortest amount of time. On the other hand, due to the growing expansion of cyberspace, it has become much more necessary to pass modern regulations or adjust the existing legal provisions. The above mentioned fact requires lawyers to conduct researches and analyze the elements of cyberspace in order to discover this extraterritorial space. One could claim that cyberspace is assessed with due regard to ethical, legal, technological, management, policy making, economic, social and cultural factors. Ethical and legal issues in this regard include Privacy, Intellectual Property, Human Rights, Accessing without License, Marketing, Innovation and prohibition of inappropriate contents. It should be noted that the legal principles and provisions in this regard are as extended and diverse as the ones in the real world. Therefore, agreements or civil liability, intellectual property and cybercrimes, are all subjects of this legal field. Another issue which is of great importance in this regard is the fact that in general, the rules governing the cyberspace are the same as those that govern the real world. In other words, the change in space does not cause a change in the governing regulations unless a new and unique situation has been created in which case we should either create a new rule or exception or adjust the current regulations.
Growing improvement of cyberspace has resulted in some people of genius starting their innovative activities in the cyberspace. In this regard, it shall be of great importance to be familiar with the regulations governing cyberspace including Electronic Commerce Act, Union System Act, Electronic Crimes Act, Consumer Protection Act and its executive regulations, as well as the primary arrangements for such an activity including acquiring the legal licenses and drafting agreements with those who intend to cooperate with the new company. However, it should be noted that not all the people who are active in this field tend to choose the path of improvement and honesty. The interests of a certain group might require them to abuse the disadvantages of this space and commit particular crimes which would not have been committed if there were no cyberspace.
