IT and media
This business awakens our enthusiasm – and yours, too. The multitude of technical innovations enables continuous new product developments. This poses a challenge for engineers, businessmen and lawyers alike. It is a situation in which especially product development and distribution require a sound legal basis. End customer contracts have to comply with special liability requirements. In addition, each new product must be checked against the applicable regulatory framework which is undergoing constant further development.
The use of infrastructure is tightly regulated. Thus business models often depend on decisions by the authorities, whether on the allocation of distribution capacity by a Landesmedienanstalt (Media Authority of a German Land) or on the restriction of access to bottleneck infrastructures – and the fees to be paid for this – by the Bundesnetzagentur (German Federal Network Agency).
But this is not enough. The increasing convergence of technical platforms and the growing diversification of the communication contents render legal advice indispensable which must be able to cope with both content regulation and infrastructure regulation. We keep an eye on all these aspects. And even more: The further development of information technology has caused the data protection and data security requirements to become even stricter. Non-compliance and errors in this field may entail considerable liability risks for companies. As you see, many aspects have to be considered. Let us embrace this challenge together.
