In einem Hinweis des Landgerichts Duisburg (Az. 1 O 75/17) weist es die Parteien – insbesondere die Klägerin – darauf hin, dass der von den Parteien nach § 278 Abs. 6 ZPO vorgeschlagene Vergleich nicht festgestellt werden kann. Ein Nachgeben der Klägerin nach § 779 BGB sei nicht ersichtlich.

Das Landgericht Bielefeld hat entschieden, dass ein bestimmter Tweet nicht urheberrechtlich geschützt ist (vgl. LG Bielefeld, Beschluss vom 03.01.2017, Az. 4 O 144/16). Was bedeutet das Urteil und wie sieht die Rechtslage im internationalen Vergleich aus?

Am 25.11.2016 hob der II. Senat des AGH Berlin (Az. II AGH 16/15) auf Antrag der BRAK vom 27.09.2016 den Beschluss des AGH Berlin vom 06.06.2016 auf und lehnte den Eilantrag unseres Kollegen Hoppe ab.

The decision, as previously announced, of the II senate of the Lawyer's court from June 06, 2016 (reference number. II AGH 16/15) in the matter of the specific electronic attorney's mail box ready-to-receive (beA) has been taken.

Soon the lawyers' court Berlin will come to a decision in the matter of the specific electronic mail box ready-to-receive (beA). The hearing before the lawyer's court ended with a court settlement with which the FBA has now disagreed. Now that both parties had an opportunity to state their positions, we are sure the final decision will be taken by the end of May 2016.

We hereby give a detailed report of the hearing at the II Senate of the Lawyer's Court in occasion of the proceedings against the practice of the Federal Bar Association to install the attorney's electronic mailboxes ready-to-receive. The hearing took place on February 24, 2016 and latest about three hours from 01.00 pm to 04.00 pm.

We inform you about the latest activities regarding the beA:

In the commercial register the managing director's name of a company has to be changed in case of gender reassignment. The BGH decided that the managing director cannot pretend the complete cancellation of his former name in the archives of the commercial register. (BGH, in a ruling from February 03, 2015, reference number II ZB 12/14).

On November 26, 2015 the Federal Bar Association announced in a press release that the electronic lawyer post office box for all lawyers licensed in Germany will not be effective from January 1 2016. The FBA pointed out that the beA system does not have the user-friendliness which the lawyers expect such a system to have.

We are asking the FBA to refrain from installing the beA without the lawyers' first registration and without an identification procedure.
