Media reporting stands in a dense relationship between journalistic freedom and the protection of the personal rights of the individual.
In media law, the main focus is on the protection of honor, against violations of the highly personal sphere of life and an (inadmissible) invasion of privacy, protection against disclosure of identity and, in the case of criminal reporting, especially the protection of the presumption of innocence. Central provisions on the admissibility of media reporting can be found in the Austrian Media Act (Mediengesetz), which imposes limits on the freedom of the press through a difficult system of permissible offences and regularly requires a balanced weighing of all interests involved. We strengthen your interests with a customized line of argumentation.
Besides providing legal advice at the highest level, we always aim to find practicable and (cost-)efficient solutions.
