Various articles in print media, but also audio and video entries via the Internet are able to intervene in a quite negative way in privacy rights of individuals. Personal rights of everybody are those rights which – as the term suggests – “are connected with the personality of the person concerned”.
In this context, examples such as the honor, dignity, reputation or about the right to private life of a person can be enumerated. All these personal(ity) rights can be attacked by the media (newspapers, magazines, the Internet or radio and television, as well as other publications). Media Law has the task to encounter such violations effectively.
