Questions on copyright
What is protected by copyright?
The individual articles, tables and other contents of EUWID printed publications and the EUWID online services are protected by copyright and are exclusively reserved for the client’s own use and the use of the client’s employees within the scope of the applicable licence at the agreed and specified premises of the client. All rights are reserved.
Copyright protection applies worldwide. Infringement of the provisions of copyright regulations constitutes a breach of law entailing civil or criminal prosecution.
Does copyright protection only apply to contents when a copyright sign (©) is shown?
No. German law states that copyright protection arises automatically when the work is created. The copyright sign is used occasionally just as a reference but does not in itself result in or provide copyright protection for the work.
Does copyright protection also apply for the presentation of work in the Internet?
Yes, because the medium is of no relevance in copyright matters.
