Media law deals with the regulations of private and public (universal) information and communication and thus plays into the legal sub-areas of public law, civil law and criminal law.
Media law includes above all the subject areas of press, radio, radio, television, film, multimedia and the internet, all of which are relevant to our daily practice.
The provisions of the German Telemedia Act (TMG) play an important role in multimedia and internet law. For example, Section 5 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG) stipulates the imprint obligations that every online provider must comply with.
The privileged liability of Internet providers when offering third-party information also repeatedly plays a role in legal advice practice.
For media operators (editorial offices, journalists), for example, the aspect of the media’s claim to information, the provision of information and the exploitation of information is important. This regularly results from the state press laws.
In media criminal law, we frequently advise and represent clients against insults by third parties.
In the area of eCommerce, the main focus is on the legality of online shops and compliance with the statutory provisions governing general terms and conditions of business, which have to be continually adapted to current changes in the law and new decisions by the highest courts. Competition law also plays an important role here.
