Alisa and her boyfriend are setting up a new online shopping site for beauty products in Malaysia. In order to save legal costs, they have copied the terms and content from other websites.
Is that true?
Whoever creates terms and conditions owns the copyright to it, copy or reproduce of the same without consent amounting to an infringement of copyright.
Further, terms of other websites may not be applicable to their business model and may not be in compliance with Malaysia laws. It is advisable to seek legal advice in order to ensure that they do not fall foul of the laws and the business transactions via the website are properly regulated.
