Information on legal content

To avoid severe security risks, structurally copyright-infringing websites should therefore not be used. Click here for a list of legal alternatives, i.e. legal services available in Germany. The European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) provides its own portal, AGORATEKA, for this purpose.

You can use the AGORATEKA website to access a list of legal streaming and download portals for Germany. The list is provided in cooperation with the German Patent and Trademark Office (Deutsches Patent und Markenamt - DPMA).

Deutschland sicher im Netz

The website of Deutschland sicher im Netz e.V. (DsiN) (German internet security initiative) provides further information on the topic of online safety, such as the DsiN digital driving licence or the "Digital Education meets Schools" (DigiBitS) programme:

The DsiN digital driving licence (DiFü) from the Deutschland sicher im Netz association provides information about the IT security risks and provides tips for security practice in private and professional contexts. The skills acquired in the DiFü learning centre can also be certified. In addition, DiFü-News provides you with the article "Copyright on the Internet: What's allowed, what's not?" for an overview of the legally compliant use of digital media.

With the DiFü for teachers, educational staff at schools can also find helpful tips on the legally compliant use of digital media in teaching contexts, from primary school to professional school. On the website of the DsiN project "Digital Education Meets School" (DigiBitS), teachers can choose from over 50 teaching materials to digitise their subject lessons safely and confidently and talk to young people about security risks online. More than 600 additional materials can be researched in the DigiBitS material pool.
