For media law

Media law deals with the regu­la­ti­on of pri­va­te and public (uni­ver­sal) infor­ma­ti­on and com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on and thus plays into the legal sub­fields of public law, civil law and cri­mi­nal law.

Media law pri­ma­ri­ly covers the press, radio, tele­vi­si­on, film, mul­ti­me­dia and Inter­net, all of which are rele­vant to our dai­ly con­sul­ting prac­ti­ce.

In mul­ti­me­dia and Inter­net law, the regu­la­ti­ons of the Tele­me­dia Act (TMG) play an important role. For exam­p­le, § 5 of the Ger­man Tele­me­dia Act (TMG) sti­pu­la­tes the imprint obli­ga­ti­ons that must be obser­ved by any online pro­vi­der.

The pri­vi­le­ged lia­bi­li­ty of Inter­net pro­vi­ders for the pro­vi­si­on of third-par­ty infor­ma­ti­on is also a recur­ring issue in legal prac­ti­ce.

For media ope­ra­tors (edi­to­ri­al offices, jour­na­lists), for exam­p­le, the aspect of the media’s cla­im to infor­ma­ti­on, the pro­vi­si­on of infor­ma­ti­on and the uti­liza­ti­on of infor­ma­ti­on is important. This regu­lar­ly results from the sta­te press laws.

In the field of media cri­mi­nal law, we fre­quent­ly advi­se and repre­sent cli­ents against third-par­ty insults.

In the area of eCom­mer­ce, the main focus is on the lega­li­ty of online stores and com­pli­ance with the legal requi­re­ments for gene­ral terms and con­di­ti­ons of busi­ness (GTCs), which must be con­stant­ly adapt­ed to the latest chan­ges in the law and new supre­me court decis­i­ons. Com­pe­ti­ti­on law also plays a major role here time and again.
