Press

The press takes on an important role in our society as a broker of information. Its freedom is guaranteed through numerous constitutionally enshrined privileges. Due to its particular function in a democratic society, the press has an obligation to exercise these privileges diligently.

Freedom of the press finds its limits in the personal rights of those affected by its reporting. Untrue factual claims or abusive criticism, for example, can result in legal liability. Potential infringements come in all shapes and sizes, meaning that legal advice must be customized to a high degree.
