Internet Law

The Internet offers users and companies excellent opportunities. Every day, countless websites portals and business ideas are created. Topics such as warnings, liability for content, image rights, copyrights, trademarks or data protection are very frequent.  Furthermore, a great amount of established business models, such as the sale of products via Amazon, eBay and similar portal is growing, and in this legal framework particular (contractual) regulations are applied.

Basics of Internet Law

The massive use of the Internet and the steadily changing of the legal framework and the modern internet-based business models, have caused a plethora of legal pitfalls in internet law. In this way, the concerned parties, such as portal operators, web sites operators, entrepreneurs or startups, can not equally rule all the legal requirements, new judgments, or other legal frameworks. Thus, there is no “internet law” that regulates this legal framework; in reality we normally considered the “most common” basic conditions with some special regulations (f.i. Telemedia Act).

Legal Pitfalls on the following topics of Internet Law

In regards to the following topics, we are constantly working on individual cases, so that our lawyers, attorneys and patent attorneys can also estimate the probable future legal developments of the current legal situation. Furthermore, some of our attorneys are also technically well versed.
