Prof Jan B. Nordemann with brochure for VDL on editorial reporting within the framework of the Football European Championships 2016.

The Association of German Local Newspapers (VDL) has published an information booklet on the upcoming Football European Championships 2016 as service for its members. The brochure is entitled "The UEFA brands - Limits on editorial reporting - Limits on advertising" and is intended to provide local newspaper editors with legal certainty in their dealings with UEFA logos and rules. BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT partner Prof. Dr. Jan Bernd Nordemann compiled the brochure for the VDL; he has advised VDL for years on issues of copyright and media law. The brochure provides concrete and easily accessible information with regard to the legal aspects on reporting on the sporting event and whether and under what conditions trademark protected UEFA marks may be used.
