Welcome to Online Werberecht!

This website deals with the legal challenges of online advertising. As of now, mainly German law and relevant provisions of European law are covered. The law of online advertising (Online Werberecht in German, hence the name of the website) deals with all legal aspects of marketing and advertising on the internet. This includes trademark and copyright issues, domain name disputes, the law of unfair competition, e-commerce and media law, data protection as well as consumer protection and the law of contract and questions of general tort law and liability.
