kölner forum medienrecht


Networked for many years.

As co-initiator of the kölner forum medienrecht (kfm), FREY Rechtsanwälte has been networking representatives from business, politics and science for many years in order to promote professional discourse on current legal-political topics relevant to the media and to express our attachment to Cologne as a media location. We see the networking of these players and media law expertise as an important contribution to the media location of the Cologne and Rhineland region.

Other co-founders of the kfm are the Institute for Media Law at the University of Cologne, the deutsche medienakademie köln (German Media Academy Cologne) and the Media Office of the City of Cologne. An event has been held once a year since 2007. It serves as a platform to discuss current problems in media law and to provide solutions and expertise. Lecturers and participants come from the region, the whole of Germany and the EU. In recent years, the event has covered a wide range of current issues in media law, copyright law, sports law and liability law.

The 14th annual event on the topic of „eSport – Von der Nische zum Big Business“ took place on August 4, 2022 after a delay due to pandemic.
