Musikverband hopes for new copyright law

The German music industry hopes that the government draft on copyright on the Internet will be implemented as soon as possible. The most important point here is a ban on 'bypassing copy protection systems as well as the spread of bypass technologies and detailed instructions for bypassing'.

Association boss Gebhardt, however, still sees room for improvement in connection with Internet file sharing platforms. In his opinion, no legal copies should be made from illegal sources. In addition, Gebhardt would like legally anchored injunctive relief and claims to information in the event of copyright infringements on the Internet in order to be able to prosecute corresponding users. The new copyright law should also be based on the guidelines of the EU and be implemented as quickly as possible, because 'the delays are a considerable burden on the music industry, which the law urgently needs for successful market-based action German music industry is guaranteed ', so Gebhardt.
