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.
A formal warning is an extrajudicial demand to cease and desist. Such warnings are often used in copyright and competition law. Whether or not a formal warning is justified, depends on the circumstances of the individual case.
In most cases the warning is formulated and sent by an attorney. Normally the delivery of a declaration to cease and desistbwith a penalty clause is demanded alongside the payment of a lump sum of money.
If you receive such a warning, keep calm. Please do not ignore the warning.
Checklist for examining a formal warning
1. When did you become aware of the warning? Take note of the date when you received the warning. This date is important for deadlines.
2. How was the formal warning delivered? Did the warning come as registered mail, a simple letter or in another form, such as a fax or email? When the warning only comes as an email, it couold be a fake warning. Please examine the attachment with a virus scanner and do not open unexamined if it is not a PDF file. „Checklist Formal Warnings“ weiterlesen
