The lawsuit has been initiated by Amazon who sold an e-book in which there was a part of the sketch of the comedian Karl Valentin. According to Karl Valentin's granddaughter this constituted a copyright infringement and she invited Amazon not to sell the work anymore. Amazon immediately decided to meet such demand, but denied to give a cease-and-desist declaration. The granddaughter then decided to take action against Amazon. Both the Regional Court Munich, as well as the Higher Regional Court, acting as court of appeal, denied that Amazon could be hold responsible for copyright infringement. We would reach another conclusion if Amazon continued to sell the e-book. But this is not the case. The OLG Munich decided that the granddaughter has the right to appeal to the German Supreme Court.
