Gutsch & Schlegel: 3 / Facebook: 0 (Game Over)

Another big success for us against Meta/Facebook in the matter of unofficial Facebook profiles. Due to the very clear indications during the hearing of the Hanseatic Higher Regional Court, Meta/Facebook has withdrawn its appeal against the judgement of the Hamburg Regional Court.

We therefore do not have to tolerate the Gutsch & Schlegel profile pages that Facebook had created without our consent and are entitled to the injunction. It is interesting to note that even the term “unofficial” is probably not sufficient to exclude misleading information about the creator of the profile pages.

For background information, see the 18/02/2020 news.

Thanks to Dr. Stefan Ellenberg and Christoph Schütz for their great work.

Charity Project Uta Peters “Art for Peace”

The artist Uta Peters has created a work on the Ukraine war that expresses the horror and its madness. We would like to auction the painting (“Light and Shadow” 2022, 70 x 50 cm, acrylic on canvas) together with her and donate the entire proceeds to Aktion Deutschland Hilft. Interested parties can email their bids in Euros to ukraine@g-s-legal.com. All bids received by 11 March 2022 (12pm) will be considered. The starting bid is EUR 750,-.

The purchaser will be named after receipt of payment. Gutsch & Schlegel guarantees that 100 % of the amount received will go to the donation organisation. We hope for lively participation.

Uta Peters: “On the right hand side of the work the Ukraine is shown as an independent, democratic, flourishing country with traditions and folklore. On the left, however, we see nothing but fear, death, blood, mourning and destruction. Stop Putin, stop the war! Peace for Ukraine, peace for the world!

Final and highest bid: EUR 1.250,- by Prof. Dr. Volker Limmroth, Cologne. Many thanks !
