Einstweilige Verfügung des LG Hamburg: ZEIT nimmt Artikel über Filmpiraterie vom Netz

Das Landgericht Hamburg hat es der ZEIT untersagt, über die Politikwissenschaftlerin Jeanette Hofmann zu behaupten, sie halte das Urheberrecht für überflüssig und Hofmann habe behauptet, man brau­che gar kein Urheberrecht. Außerdem wurde der Wochenzeitung verboten, zu behaupten, Hof­mann würde sich damit ein­deu­tig auf die Seite derer stellen, die mit ille­ga­len Film­ko­pien Geld verdienen. Stefan Niggemeier berichtet unter dem süffisanten Titel “Die Zeit muss Piraten-Dossier wegen Rufraub löschen” ausführlich über den Fall.

Jetzt bin ich speziell bei äußerungsrechtlichen Beschlussverfügungen des Landgerichts Hamburg aus Erfahrung skeptisch. Die spannende Frage wird also sein, ob Hofmann tatsächlich wörtlich oder sinngemäß irgendwann gesagt hat, sie halte das Urheberrecht für überflüssig und vor allem auch in welchem Kontext eine solche Äußerung dann gestanden hat. Sollte eine solche Aussage Hofmanns existieren, dann könnten auch die restlichen Aussagen der ZEIT in Bezug auf ihre Person von der Meinungsfreiheit gedeckt sein, selbst wenn man das in Hamburg wie so oft anders sehen sollte.

Sollte die ZEIT eine solche Aussage Hofmanns allerdings nicht belegen können, dann wäre sie in der Tat zu einem Tendenzblatt von Springerschem Niveau verkommen. Warum das besagte ZEIT-Dossier unabhängig von den Behauptungen zur Person Hofmanns mit Qualitätsjournalismus wenig zu tun hat, hat Torsten Dewi in seinem Blog ausführlich erläutert.

Es wird also interessant sein zu sehen, ob die ZEIT Widerspruch gegen die Beschlussverfügung einlegt oder eine Abschlusserklärung abgibt und damit die einstweilige Verfügung als rechtsverbindlich akzeptiert.

so great idea! [from]

Time/Bank aims to create an immaterial currency and a parallel micro-economy for the cultural community, one that will create a sense of worth for many of the exchanges that already take place within the art field.

At Portikus, the Time/Bank will be comprised of four main components: an exhibition of artist-designed prototypes for a time-based currency; a currency mint that will print and circulate four hundred Hour Notes—one for each hour of the exhibition; an archive of notgeld notes—the legendary German alternative currency popular during the hyperinflation of the 1920s; a branch of Time/Store offering a range of commodities, groceries, and articles of daily use, as well as a selection of artist's editions and books produced by Portikus.

Interview with Designer Yves Béhar / Part 1/2: Issey Miyake Watch Series VUE

On the occasion of the presentation of Seiko’s Issey Miyake watch series VUE at Baselworld 2010 in Basel, Switzerland, VernissageTV met with the designer of the watch, Yves Béhar.

In the first part of the interview, Yves Béhar talks about the new Issey Miyake watch series called VUE: the basic idea, the materials, and shows us the watch and an animation that visualizes the concept behind VUE.
In the second part of the interview, Yves Béhar talks about his work and his studios in New York and San Francisco, his involvement in the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project for which he designed the XO laptop, the future of design and the role design can play in making the world a better place, and the projects he is working on at the moment.

The complete interview is also available on our HD page.

Since 2001, under the direction of ISSEY MIYAKE, Seiko Instruments Inc. has collaborated with designers such as Shunji Yamanaka, Harri Koskinen, Tokujin Yoshioka, Naoto Fukasawa and Ross Lovegrove. This time, Yves Béhar was commissioned to design a new watch series.

Designer Statement by Yves Béhar: “A watch is a Mindset about the idea of time. When considering reading the time of day, my main question is: why do I need to see all twelve numbers when only one is needed? The watch’s unique approach is to present one number appearing only, while the previous hour slowly fades out of view, and the next one fades into view. This magical appearance reminds me of the time just passed, and the future incoming…it says, ‘time is precious, yet always presents us with a surprise ahead. The mindset of the watch is to let the mystery of time be experienced: the watch is a way to feel time’s appearance and disappearance in our lives. By seeing only the current hour, while the last hour representing the past and the next one representing the future subtly fade in and out, we can live a new view of time.”
