File sharing warning letter

The Frankfurt am Main-based law firm, WeSaveYourCopyrights, has recently started sending file sharing warning letters for the song “Scheiss Drauf” (Peter Wackel).

The copyright holder of the song is Xtreme Sound GmbH.

The file sharing warning letter provides evidence of an apparent copyright infringement and contains a demand for the recipient to submit a declaration to cease and desist. The company also requires the recipient to pay compensation as well as legal fees. A settlement amount of €450.00 is recommended.

You should not feel obliged to accept the demands, without first having had their authenticity verified. Claims that internet connection owners are liable in all cases for legal infringements caused by third parties, for example, are not correct.

Furthermore, declarations to cease and desist often contain long-term obligations which can last for years. It is therefore highly advisable to obtain legal advice.

For more advice you can contact Wilde Beuger Solmecke’s file sharing hotline on +49 (0) 221 / 951 563 0.
