Legal advice on internet law by Cyber Law Clinic
The entry into self-employment but also the daily working practice of the self-employed in the creative economy is connected with a number of decisions which also include legal dimensions.
Often a lawyer is not immediately needed, but where else is there really reliable information? Books and colleagues may be able to help, but the Hamburg Kreativ Gesellschaft can provide an initial orientation in this case, but cannot and should not replace legal advice.
The Hamburg Kreativ Gesellschaft would like to support solo self-employed people, founders, start-ups, smaller agencies, etc. to be able to behave legally secure.
Therefore, in cooperation with the Cyber Law Clinic of the Faculty of Law (Universität Hamburg), it offers free student legal advice on questions concerning the Internet.
Presentation, sales and communication via the Internet raise many questions in the working practice, which can be addressed within the scope of this offer, for example:
- How do I legally operate an online shop?
- Do I need terms and conditions in any case?
- What has to be considered in the imprint and do I also need an imprint for my Facebook presence?
- How do I protect my creative work on the Internet?
- What does a correct use of creative services of others on my own blog or website look like?
Disputes about domain names and account grabbing, liability of a platform operator, content theft and other copyright infringements are typical topics raised by the use of the Internet and in particular social media. Usually it is a matter of legal uncertainty, the need for clarification and not immediately a full-blown legal dispute, which must be the subject of legal advice provided by a lawyer.
On this date, students of law, guided by experienced lawyers, will be available at the Hamburg Kreativ Gesellschaft for questions and orientation.
The Cyber Law Clinic is a project of the Faculty of Law of the University of Hamburg. The students advise people seeking advice under the guidance of a lawyer. The aim is to have the students practise early on.
The Cyber Law Clinic explicitly deals with the law on the Internet. The topics are spread over all areas of law and all areas of life. Every social group is affected and the amount in dispute is often small, so that lawyers cannot deal with the facts of the case. The questions raised are dynamic and often already have a new face next month. Consequently, there is a need for advice on the part of users. There is no better way for students to learn legal matters hand in hand with practice than on the Internet.

The offer is free of charge. The event will be held in German.
