Webseitenbetreiber und Shops: Neue Pflichten beim Urheberrecht

Important Changes in Copyright Law from June 7, 2023

Significant changes in copyright law will come into effect from June 7, 2023, affecting authors, website operators, and licensees of copyrighted works. These changes aim to promote transparency and fairness in dealing with intellectual property and strengthen copyright in the digital era.

Responsibilities with the Copyright Law Changes

Authors of works such as photos, articles, and music must now receive annual reports on the use of their works. This regulation ensures fair compensation for authors based on the proceeds from their works and safeguards their rights.

Website operators are facing new obligations. Starting from June 7, they must annually report to the web designer if they use graphics or other content that they did not create themselves. This enhances clarity and fairness in handling copyrighted content.

Copyright Law Changes in Reporting Usage

Previously, the author could request information about the use of their works. Now, it is the responsibility of the licensee – the user of the work – to provide this information. This marks a significant shift in responsibilities and strengthens copyright.

Emphasis on Author Contributions

It is important to note that this regulation was made possible by authors who have licensed their works under remunerative usage rights. This underscores the significance of the author’s contribution. Clear criteria need to be established for determining when the reporting obligation may be considered disproportionate. This responsibility falls to the legislator or the judiciary to protect the interests of authors.

Preparation for Website Operators and Online Shop Owners

Website operators and online shop owners must prepare by:

  1. Reviewing the copyrighted works they have licensed.
  2. Determining whether they are subject to a reporting obligation.
  3. Establishing a system for documenting the extent of usage, proceeds, and benefits from copyrighted content unless the exception under § 32d(2) UrhG applies.

These measures are essential to meet the new legal requirements while respecting the rights of authors. Promoting transparency and fairness in dealing with intellectual property contributes to creating a more balanced and just environment for creators and users and adapting copyright to the demands of the digital world.

Online Plattformen: Neue Meldepflichten nach DAC7

Online Platforms: New Reporting Obligations under DAC7

To combat tax evasion, new reporting obligations are set to be introduced for operators of online platforms. This not only affects online marketplaces like eBay, Amazon, and but also other online platforms that facilitate personal services or rental income.

The new reporting obligations require platform operators to collect information about the sellers on their platforms and the revenue they generate, which must be reported to the relevant authority. In Germany, the Federal Central Tax Office (BZSt) is responsible for taxation.

The reportable information includes:

  • Full name
  • Address
  • Tax identification number
  • Financial account

However, the draft law is still in the legislative process. Therefore, starting in early 2024, reporting obligations for applicable platform operators could potentially apply retrospectively for the year 2023. The development will be monitored until then.

Shops: Neues Lieferkettengesetz, Verpackungen und Elektrogesetz

Shops: New Supply Chain Law, Packaging Regulations, and Electrical Law

The Supply Chain Act (LkSG) came into effect on January 1, 2023. The aim of the LkSG is to enhance the protection of human rights in global supply chains. German companies with more than 3,000 employees are obliged to comply with it.

The new Packaging Law affects caterers, delivery services, and also restaurants. They are now required to offer both single-use and reusable containers for food and beverages. For more information on this, please refer to the official website of the German government regarding the Supply Chain and Packaging Law.

Starting from January 1, 2023, new regulations under the Electrical Law (ElektroG) apply. These regulations concern the labeling of B2B devices, the authorization of foreign manufacturers, and also the quarterly fee for all registered manufacturers. As of July 1, 2023, new due diligence requirements will also be introduced for electronic marketplaces and fulfillment service providers. This applies to service providers handling the shipping and returns of orders.

Marketplace operators and fulfillment service providers must ensure that only registered manufacturers of electrical and electronic products are allowed to offer their products. Manufacturers are also obligated to provide their registration numbers from the EAR Foundation to the marketplace operators and fulfillment service providers they use. Failure to comply with the new regulations after July 1, 2023, may result in substantial fines.
