This GvW International Newsletter deals with a recent European Court of Justice decision in which it was decided that Member States must oblige employers to set up a system to measure the daily working time of their employees.
In this issue we report on the new Law for the Protection of Trade Secrets which requires companies to actively do something to protect their trade secrets in order to be able to claim legal protection in the future.
We also comment on a high-profile decision of the Regional Court in Karlsruhe involving influencer marketing and whether influencers’ posts / photographs on social media accounts should be labelled as "advertisements": a developing area of law which remains unclear after several recent regional courts’ decisions.
You will also find in this issue information from our Istanbul office on the mandatory mediation for commercial disputes.
We wish you an interesting read!
