§ 17 Right of Distribution

§ 97 Claim for Omission and Damages
- Anyone who illegally violates copyrights or any other right protected by this law can be claimed against by the offended party to eliminate the impairment or, at risk of re-offending, be claimed for omission. The claim for omission exists even in case of first time infringement.
- Anyone who intentionally or negligently carries out a violation of copyrights is obligated to compensate the offended party for any resulting damage. Any profits the infringer has obtained through the violation may also be considered in the assessment of damages.
