REHKATSCH Attorneys at Law
Specialist law firm
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.
