Berlin Court demands proof of copyright-protected works

December 7th, 2007 by Roman Czyborra

As you can see in http://oma.home.pages.de/1.Beschluss.pdf I did not provide sufficient proof to the judges that my scientific work on Wikipedia was indeed of high enough quality to be copyright-protected. But I celebrate this first defeat as a victory since the case has been accepted and the required proof should be deliverable.

    It surprises me that the argument is over “quality” as opposed to ownership of publishing rights on that domain.

    Is this just the first hurdle, with publishing arguments to follow?

    Good to hear that the case is viable, regardless of the evidential aspects. That should give WP something to think about.

    Would be interested to hear the extent to which, if at all, the case has so far aroused interest in the German media.

    That is the proper weblog for anybody who desires to find out about this topic. You notice a lot its virtually hard to argue with you (not that I actually would need…HaHa). You undoubtedly put a brand new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Nice stuff, just nice!
