Law Lab

Publishing on the web can unfortunately mean stumbling onto thin ice, legally speaking. Copyright law, cease and desist, surreptitious advertising – those are just some of the keywords and stumbling blocks. Every year at re:publica, we are having experts on hand in our Law Lab to help explain and make sure you stay on the safe side (legally).

The Law Lab is conceived and curated by the lawyers Henning Krieg and Thorsten Feldmann, whom the re:publica visitors know from their “Annual Review of Social Media Law”. Krieg and Feldmann have been giving an annual review of the latest developments in social media law since 2009, and were of course back at it again at #rpTEN as part of the MEDIA CONVENTION on Day 1.

In the "Crash course on personality rights" on Day 2 of the re:publica TEN, lawyers Roman Portack and Ansgar Koreng explained why review portals often erase critical comments. The reasoning behind this usually has to do with a blurry separation between opinion and fact – a distinction that everybody should be aware of.
