Judgement of AG Kerpen (Local Court Kerpen) of 04/11/2010, file number: 102 C 108/10

If footage of a traffic accident is available on the Internet, no consent is necessary for the publication if the people involved cannot be recognised. A visible licence plate number is not a decisive factor since this identifies the vehicle, not the driver. In case that the recognition is only based on the particular means of transport in relation with local conditions, as in the reported incident, the publication does not constitute any infringement of personality rights.

Judgement of OLG Düsseldorf (Higher Regional Court) of 09/02/2010, file number: I-20 U 151/09

When a movie contains a photo without the approval of the affected person, the freedom of art should be weighed against the personality right of the affected person. However, minors enjoy a considerably higher protection and, therefore, a consideration will basically grant their interests.
