New article by Prof Christian Czychowski and Viktoria Kraetzig on Kluwer´s Copyright Blog

BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT lawyers Prof. Dr. Christian Czychowski and Viktoria Kraetzig discuss two ongoing preliminary ruling proceedings of the ECJ inthe copyright blog of the specialist publisher Wolters Kluwer: The "Reformist Awakening” proceedings deal with the attempt by Volker Beck, a Member of the German Bundestag and the Green Party, to ban the publication of an older article concerning the decriminalisation of non-violent sexual acts between adults and children. In the "Afghanistan Papers" proceedings, the German federal government wants to prevent the publication of military reports. Both proceedings therefore deal with the important question of whether copyright can be misused as a means of censureship.
