Bickel’s Copyright Infringement Warning – or how to turn EUR 29 into EUR 3041.50

Filipp Bickel

In our firm we currently have an official warning letter from the Berlin-based lawyer Philipp Bickel. In his letter Bickel alleges copyright infringement on behalf of his client, a Dutch photographer, in relation to a picture he took in Dubai. Dros became aware of the infringement after utilising the services of PhotoClaim. Bickel is currently pursuing the matter in the US, arguing for the application of German copyright law.

Our client, an American business, is accused of displaying the Dubai picture on their website over a ten-month period without permission. Consequently, Bickel demands the payment of compensation totalling €3041.50, which he justifies with reference to the so-called MFM-list (explained below). “Bickel’s Copyright Infringement Warning – or how to turn EUR 29 into EUR 3041.50” weiterlesen
