Technology and IT Law

There are no conclusive regulations on Technology Law. This concerns legal issues with technical (often mainly decisive) relevance, whether in the area of Intellectual Property Law, Information technology law Telecommunication law, Energy law and other legal systems. New technical possibilities must be constantly fitted into legal frameworks, which are often not standardized for this precise technical problem. At the same time, the technical innovation speed and the associated and general information  width also progress so intensively that it becomes difficult to understand “internet law”, “telecommunications law”, “energy law” or “standardization law (law of technical standards) without an appropriate technical knowledge.

Intellectual Property Law (IP-Law)

Technical ideas are emerging and spreading rapidly without substantial spatial boundaries. Ideas are not protectable -a monopoly on human thought cannot exist- . The implementation of ideas into technical innovations can be protected by patents/utility models or be kept secret as know-how. The management of OP rights allows quite different objectives and strategies: whether as trademark delimitation or protection against competitors or in the form of passive trademark monitoring by supervising registration and content of third parties, the early and comprehensive focus of IP rights to corporate identity or personal objectives, take into account European and international regulations and development.

Internet Law, Data Protection Law, Information Technology Law (IT-Law)

IT-Law as part of the technology law summarizes all the peculiarities of information technology. Nowadays, IT-Law is one of the typical legal areas with a technical impact; in this development phases, the difficulties of the legal area in keeping up with the development definitely emerge.

The focus of IT Law is on the legal issues of software and hardware, media, competition and the internet, as well as data protection, data security. The individual legal areas are frequently overlapping:

  • IT law (for example project contracts, software and hardware distribution, licensing agreement, maintenance contracts, obligations, warranty and liability);
  • Internet/Online Law (domain law, defence against warning, information requirements, data protection law, industrial property law etc.)
  • Media Law (for example, multi-media contracts, rights of expression, image rights);
  • Competition Law (for example, warning letters of competitors, advertising law etc.).

Telecommunications Law (TK-Recht)

There is no uniform (legal) definition of the technical term “telecommunications”, as also the scope of Telecommunication Law concerning Technology Law is constantly varying. However, Telecommunications Law is included in Technology Act. The purpose of this Code is to promote competition through the regulation of telecommunications and to ensure adequate and sufficient services across all areas and to define a Frequency regulation (§1TKG).The liberalization of the telecommunications market has already been arranged with the “Postal reform (German, Postreforms) I and II”. The Telecommunication Law of 25 July 1996 constitute the Telecommunication Act. The regulatory objective of a comprehensive, adequate, sufficient and competitive supply is contained in Article 87f Basic Law, the Telecommunication Act and some EC-directives leaves many questions unsolved. These concern, inter alia, the licensing and frequency distribution to telecommunication providers, the constitutional guarantee obligation of an adequate basic supply and matters of competition supervision. The establishment of an independent regulatory authority alongside the Federal Cartel Office is a rather complex process for the procedures under the Telecommunication Act. Legal disputes over non-discriminatory network access by competitors are relatively difficult.

The legal differentiation of the various technical media such as radio, television, telecommunications, teleservices and media services appears to be overtaken by the ever-increasing technical standardization in the course of digitalization. However, the legal framework, whether within Europe or worldwide, is far behind this development.

Energy Law

The energy market shall be “liberalized” with “new regulation” on Energy Industry Law: this is also called “unbundling”. In the economic context, this means the unbundling of individual business areas “interweaved” to a company due to legal or regulatory stipulations.

The business area is considered in this case, the activity of a company on a particular market.

Hereby, you will find listed the most common matters regarding energy law:

  • Supporting companies of the energy sector in strategic mergers, co-operations and start-ups;
  • Transit projects are reviewed, implemented and repelled;
  • Business intention are embedded in secure contracts and existing contracts are review and adjusted;
  • Energy-specialists are supported in business dealings with energy suppliers in negotiations of contracts, drafting of contracts, amendment of contracts, contract enforcement and contract termination;
  • Solution to problems related to the German Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) or the Combined Heat and Power Act (KWKG).

We represent energy consumers of every economic level, including consumers, both out-of-court and judicially.
