The song “Video killed the radio star” illustrated the technological change in media 45 years ago. Since then, much more has transpired. Media content is available everywhere and at all times, with traditional linear media like radio, television, and print being replaced by non-linear and partly user-generated offerings. 

This convergence leads to regulatory challenges, as regulation trails behind technological advancement. 

New business models and questions emerge, which we legally accompany. 

Our activities particularly encompass: 

  • Reputation Management 

  • Regulatory Issues concerning Media, Advertising, and Youth Protection

  • Website Compliance and Internet-based Business Models
