Communications, media and technology
Due to the rapid pace of technological change, information and communications technology (ICT) is playing a more and more important role for many companies. At the same time, the distinction between high-tech and traditional industries is becoming smaller. Frequently, this represents a challenge to market mechanisms, established business models and legal thinking, but also provides opportunities for those who manage to exploit their business's potential.

Høyesterett avsa 5. mai i år en prinsipiell dom vedrørende gyldigheten av oppsigelsene av ti piloter i den norske delen av SAS. Hovedspørsmålet i saken var om SAS i forbindelse med nedbemanning kunne legge avgjørende vekt på at piloter over 60 år hadde rett til en pensjon. Høyesterett kom til at oppsigelsene ikke var alderdiskriminerende og at de heller ikke på annet grunnlag var ugyldige.
