Protection of Websites Under Turkish Law
The legal protection of websites in Turkey is a complex issue that requires practitioners to be aware of all possible legal remedies and the possibilities of infringement. Although there is no straightforward regulation to confer legal protection to websites under Turkish law, courts consider the specific circumstances of each case and assess the limit of the allowed use. The stronger the originality of the website, the stronger the legal protection would be. To protect their websites, owners should register trademarks, establish comprehensive contracts with independent contractors, monitor the market for potential infringement, and ensure the security of their intellectual property.
