The greatest challenge of the beginning of the 21st Century is the
acceleration of technical changes and innovation, that has created a
new competitive dynamism in a range of markets sometimes collectively

This so-called new economy has become almost synonymous with the
information technology industries including computer software,
hardware, and Internet-based businesses and associated technologies
such as wireless communications.
Baring in mind the economic potential of using the Internet and yet
the importance of protecting the ideas upon which development is
based, The European Law Students Association-ELSA Bucharest, The
Romanian Development Law Association-IDLO Alumni and Nestor Nestor
