Dear Colleagues,
recently, Axel Horns asked whether Germany has implemented the EU
Database Directive it by August 01, 1997 (Amandment of UrhG by
The answer is no: The directive has been implemented as part of
the IukDG (containing several acts). But the implementation entered
into force on 1 January 1998 (different from other regulations in the
IukDG which entered into force on 1 August 1997). So Barbara
Schleihagen is right.

Yours sincerely and - dear Mrs. Schleihagen - my respect and thanks
for all the wonderful work you are doing
