Every­thing sorted?—Media pro­duc­tion and the law

Soon­er or later, most inter­net users pro­duce and pub­lish their own media con­tent, often with­out even being aware of it or of the rel­e­vant legal frame­work. The aim of the brochure Alles gek­lärt? (Every­thing Sort­ed?), pub­lished by the Medi­en­anstalt Berlin-Bran­den­burg (mabb), is to con­vey this real­i­ty in a com­pre­hen­si­ble and prac­ti­cal­ly use­ful way, espe­cial­ly to young media pro­duc­ers.

On behalf of mabb, iRights.Lab has now thor­ough­ly revised and updat­ed the pub­li­ca­tion, which appeared in its first edi­tion in 2010. The new con­cept places par­tic­u­lar empha­sis on so-called usage sce­nar­ios. These take into account the fact that the bound­aries between indi­vid­ual media gen­res are becom­ing increas­ing­ly blurred by the dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion. The authors of the new edi­tion of the brochure thus explain the legal reg­u­la­tions that apply to self-pub­lished media pro­duc­tions and base these expla­na­tions in prac­ti­cal exam­ples. Not only do they help read­ers avoid the cor­re­spond­ing legal risks, they also pro­vide a nec­es­sary overview of the rel­e­vant areas of law, such as copy­right, per­son­al rights and press law.

The brochure Every­thing Sorted?—Media Pro­duc­tion and Law (PDF, approx. 4 MB, Ger­man) can be down­loaded here free of charge.
