Media, publishing and blogs

We protect a work’s value

Hardly any sectors feel the progress of internet technologies as much as the media and publishing industry. The modern World Wide Web, in which anyone can publish attractive content at no charge and for unlimited audiences without any profound technical knowledge, for example via blogs, presents both opportunities and risks. The following are some of the services Spirit Legal LLP offers traditional and innovative media and content providers as well as businesses and private individuals:

  • Advice on the legally certain use of external content and dealing with user-generated content
  • Assistance with compliance with German, European and international copyright and labelling regulations
  • Advice in cases of personal rights infringements in print and online media
  • Assertion of revocation, rebuttal, injunctive relief and damage claims
  • Representation and action in cases of copyright infringement
  • Obtaining cease-and-desist declarations and seeking injunctive relief
  • Drafting and examination of licensing agreements for photos, images, texts and videos

We advise bloggers, designers, photographers, musicians, film-makers, journalists, authors, programmers and other industry professionals on the safe handling of other people’s works and safeguarding their own rights. Spirit Legal LLP’s attorneys-at-law understand the value of your work and will help you to protect it.
