Development is proceeding at full speed for the players in the media market. The distribution of various types of content is taking place on an increasing number of technical platforms, often in parallel with one another.
This provides major opportunities for a wide variety of offerings, including on-demand services for TV, film and music, and new methods of distribution for books, games and entertainment services. At the same time, rights clearance can be complex, and the market is subject to comprehensive regulation.
Another outcome of the developments is the emergence of new products and services, for example, the increasingly growing market for games and entertainment services.
However, even in a dynamic industry, fundamental issues concerning framework conditions, protection of privacy and freedom of speech still arise.
Through our work we have developed a practice which provides broad coverage of the media law field, including issues that are not influenced by the technical development. Fundamental principles such as freedom of information, freedom of speech and opportunities for artistic freedom and creativity are important for many of the institutions and companies we assist.
We are a dynamic group with a strong commitment to the media, entertainment and sports sectors. We assist future-oriented customers engaged in broadcasting, television distribution, publishing, marketing and communications, games, film production and sporting arrangements
