Questions on copyright

General


1. 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.

2. 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.

3. Does copyright protection also apply for the presentation of work in the Internet?
Yes, because the medium is of no relevance in copyright matters.

Press review

9. Are contents from EUWID publications permitted to be incorporated into a company's own press review?

"Press reviews" are not permitted to be produced in companies or groups of companies in a manner in which the company or group of companies concerned compiles interesting contents from various EUWID publications to form a "press review" of its/their own which is then distributed throughout the company/group of companies to affiliated firms and subsidiaries by intranet. Press reviews of this kind are not permitted to be made available for downloading from websites either.

The use of articles, particularly articles in which coverage is given of the company concerned, or quotes from our articles and publications is permitted. Such use is subject to restrictions, however. Please contact out Customer Service department if the use of several articles is required. We will be glad to give you advice!
