Attention, dear visitor! Yes, you're right. I am not an English native speaker. Not even close. As a consequence, there is a good chance that most of the text on this page is rather weird. I am therefore very thankful for any hint about "imperfections" in grammar, style, orthography or whereever. Please feel invited to tell me about such mistakes via e-mail.

The Universal Postal Union is the second oldest international organisation. Since it has been founded in 1874, the economical and political structures have undergone significant changes on a global scale. However, the need for an international cooperation to ensure the cross-border mail traffic as the spinal tap of non-electronic communications has remained unchanged. The book contains a study which has been conducted for the Federal Ministry of Economics and Labour between Autumn 2003 and Summer 2004. Its main goal was to develop a policy perspective for the reform of the Universal Postal Union in order to adapt this organisation which has been founded in a time of postal administrations to an environment where on the one hand privatised - and other private - postal operators play an increasing role while on the other hand a number of Member States still rely on the provision of postal services by administrative entities.

The book offers a compact overview of the German telecommunications law after the reform of the Telecommunications Act in 2004. Starting point are the technical and economical fundaments of the telecommunications sector. Because of the growing importance of harmonisation on the EC level, the book then shows the community law background, and, in doing so, also takes account of the formal links between the national regulatory procedures and the community level. The main focus of the book lies on the new German telecommunications law, while strictly distinguishing between economic regulation on the one hand and non-economic regulation on the other. Additionally, the institutional framework of regulation including aspects of procedural law are discussed.

The new regulatory framework of the European Community in the field of electronic communications is a legislatory and conceptual challenge for the German legislator, who is responsible for the transposition of the framework. On the one hand, it is hard to decide how much room for national legislation is left by the complicated Community law framework. On the other hand, the legislator has to take account of the restrictions stemming from the German constitutional law. The book provides a legal analysis of these questions and shows the existing possibilites for the transposition of the new regulatory framework.
However, the need for adaption of the German telecommunications law, which results directly from the new Community directives, is not limited to questions of the material side of regulation, but affect the procedural side of regulation as well. Furthermore, the so called "big amendment of the telecommunications act" may also be used to draw conclusions from the nearly seven years of regulation under the telecommunications act. It is against this background that the book also shows the framework provided by Community and constitutional law for the improvement of the administrative procedures and the procedures of legal protection.

1. Funktionsfaehiger WettbewerbKoenig / Vogelsang / Kühling / Loetz / Neumann, Funktionsfähiger Wettbewerb auf den Telekommunikationsmärkten, Verlag Recht und Wirtschaft, Kommunikation & Recht Series, Issue 16, Heidelberg 2002, 255 pages, ISBN 3-8005-1318-8. (short [23])

The German telecommunications law is at the crossroads. On the one hand, the level of competition, which already has been reached, calls for an adaption of the regulatory instruments. On the other hand, new dangers for a sustainably competitive development of the German telecommunications markets become visible. The legislator has used the term "workable competition" to describe the resulting conflict between the long-term goal of a deregulation of those markets and the regulatory interventions into the market processes necessary to reach this goal.
The book delivers an analysis of this central term of German telecommunications law from both an economic and legal perspective. The interdisciplinary approach, which was applied for this purpose, is also used to enrich the debate on the amendment of the German Telecommunications Act (TKG) with concrete proposals regarding the improvement and partial reduction of the existing regulation of the telecommunications markets. Special attention has been given to the new legal framework of the European Community with regard to the Member States' telecommunications law.

2. Trusted ComputingKoenig / Neumann / Katzschmann, Trusted Computing, Verlag Recht und Wirtschaft, Kommunikation & Recht Series, Issue 22, Heidelberg 2004, 191 pages, ISBN 3-8005-1341-2. (short [39])

In this book, experts from different scientific fields explain the technical background of the concept of the so-called trusted computing as well as its legal framework with regard to intellectual property law and competition law.
Furthermore, the advantages and disadvantages with regard to data protection are shown and the policy implications of this new technology are discussed. Since this is done from an interdisciplinary point of view, a complete analysis was possible which also allows a discussion of the possibilites and risks associated with trusted computing. The complex technical backgrounds of this technology are explained in a way that they can be understood by readers who are not working in this field. Moreover, the book contains constructive criticism from a technical, legal, and policy point of view including recommendations for politics and industry.

With the amendment of the General Railway Act in 2005, a sector-specific regulatory regime was put in place, which gives the Federal Network Agency the competence to control the conditions under which access to railway infrastructure is granted. The article explains the concept of this regulatory regime with regard to principles of charging and the charges themselves. It further specifies the mandatory and possible contents of the principles of charging which have to be set up by the railway infrastructure managers. Furthermore, the methods and yardsticks for the regulation of the individual charges are outlined in greater details. Finally, it is shown that some underlying principles from the regulation of prices in electricity and telecommunications marktes can be transferred to the regulation of prices for the access to railway infrastructure.
29. Koenig / Neumann, Legitimation durch Regulierungsverfahren?, CR 2005, at p. 487. (short [50])

The next generation of telecommunications regulation has just begun: The first drafts for the definition and analysis of telecommunications markets which require sector-specific regulation have been notified at the European level. With the draft for the market definition and analysis in the field of mobile telephony termination, the draft measure which was waited for with probably the greatest public interest has been published for national consultation. And even the first regulatory decision - with regard to the access to the subscriber line - has been passed. Against this background, the article deals with the first experiences with the new regualtory procedure and discusses relevant practical problems and legal questions which have shown up so far.

Section 25 of the Law regarding the Education of Lawyers in Northrine-Westfalia offers the opportunity of a free attempt for the final exams. Similar regulations can be found within the respective legal provisions of all federal states ("Länder"). The article analyses the way how semesters, during which the student was ill, are taken into account which is a topic of utmost interest for the relevant authorities and the students concerned.
27. Koenig / Neumann, Neue wettbewerbspolitische und -rechtliche Entwicklungen zum "Trusted Computing", DuD 2004, at p. 555. (short [44])

The standardisation work of the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) as well as the development of the Next-Generation Secure Computing Base (NGSCB) by the company Microsoft are not only of interest from the perspective of security technology. Both activities also raise questions with regard to antitrust policy and law. The article explains these problems and especially discusses the latest developments.
26. Neumann, Standortinformationen für Rettungsdienste, MedR 2004, at p. 256. (short [43])

A provision of the Directive on universal service and users' rights relating to electronic communications networks and services, which entered into force on April 24th, 2002, is of interest not only for the telecommunications lawyer, but also for the field of emergency services and thus for the medical field as well. Article 26 of the Universal Service Directive deals with the single European emergency call number. According to this provision, Member States have to ensure that all end-users of publicly available telephone services are able to call the emergency services free of charge, by using the emergency call number 112. Furthermore, these emergency calls have to be "appropriately answered and handled in a manner best suited to the national organisation of emergency systems and within the technological possibilities of the networks". Insofar, Article 26 of the Universal Service Directive continues the former legal framework. At the same time, however, two new obligations are introduced. Firstly, Article 26 (4) of the Universal Service Directive obliges Member States to ensure that citizens are adequately informedd about the existence and use of the single European emergency call number 112. Secondly and primarily, Article 26 (3) of the Universal Service Directive stipulates that Member States have to ensure that operators of public telephone networks make caller location information available to Public Safety Answering Points. This builds upon new developments in the field of telecommunications technology. The article deals with this second new obligation of European telecommunications law with regard to the handling of emergency call numbers.
25. Stadler / Neumann, Gebühren für die Zuteilung von Nummern an Internetzugangsanbieter, JurPC-WebDok. 178/2004. (short [42])

At the moment, the so-called smallband Internet access still is of utmost importance for end user markets. For the purpose of such access, the provider provides a so-called point of presence which the end user dials up via a conventional telephone connection and which allows him to access the Internet. Just as with any other telephone call in the PSTN, the end user addresses the point of presence by means of a number which was assigned to the Internet access provider by RegTP, the German national regulatory authority. For this assignment, RegTP bills a fee of 2 600 EUR per number. The article deals with this regulatory practice from a critical point of view.
24. Koenig / Neumann, Telekommunikationsrechtliche Ansprüche auf Leistungen der Fakturierung und des Inkassos für Internet-by-Call-Dienstleistungen, K & R-Supplement 3/2004, at p. 1. (short [41])

The question, to which degree a telecommunications provider with significant market power has to do the billing and to collect the fees for his competitors, has always been very controversial. Whereas this problem is clearly a matter of telecommunications law. in the case of call-by-call telephony, it is even controversial if the German Telecommunications Law (TKG) is applicable at all in the case of internet-by-call services. In a first step, the article therefore discusses whether a provider of such services is subject to telecommunications law or to the law on teleservices. In a second step, the article deals with the rights that are granted by telecommunications law regarding services in the field of billing and collecting fees. Finally, the article covers the relevant changes that can be expected from the current reform of the TKG.
23. Loetz / Neumann, The Scope of Sector-specific Regulation in the European Regulatory Framework for Electronic Communications, German Law Journal 4 (12) 2003, at p. 1307. (short [38])

The European Community's regulatory framework for electronic communications contains many detailed and complicated regulations with regard to the content of sector-specific regulation in the field of telecommunications. Remarkably, though, it is rather reticent concerning the question which markets shall be subject to sector-specific regulation. In the ongoing process of transposition, this has caused much confusion and misunderstanding. The article, therefore, strives to clarify the mechanism for determining which markets are, at least potentially, subject to sector-specific regulation provided by the Framework Directive. At the national level, a draft of the German Telecommunications Act has been presented by legal experts of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Labour on April 30th, 2003, and the subsequent Federal Government's draft act was published on October 15th, 2003. These drafts may serve as an example of bringing sector-specific regulation in line with general insights of competition policy within the discretionary scope left by the regulatory framework of the EC.
22. Koenig / Neumann, Standardisierung und EG-Wettbewerbsrecht - ist bei vertrauenswürdigen Systemumgebungen wettbewerbspolitisches Misstrauen angebracht?, WuW 2003, at p. 1138. (short [35])

From the viewpoint of general competition law, the technical concept of so-called trusted computing platforms points to the fundamental problem of standardisation in network industries. In principle, the relevant activites of the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) have to comply with Article 81 (1) EC. In the light of that provision especially the conditions of membership appear doubtful since they tend to discriminate against small and medium-sized enterprises. However, even if competition is restricted, the TCG may fulfil the requirements for an exemption to Article 81 (1) EC according to Article 81 (3) EC. In contrast to this, Article 82 EC is sedes materiae as regards the so- called trustworthy operating system which Microsoft plans to implement. From the perspective of competition law, three aspects are particularly critical: Firstly, Microsoft on the one hand controls the application programming interface of the operating system which is required for writing programs on the complementary application markets, but on the other hand competes on these markets. Secondly, Microsoft's "Next- Generation Secure Computing Base" (NGSCB) will enable the company to use its dominant position to influence also the conditions on the upstream hardware markets. And thirdly, NGSCB will create new interdependencies between formerly not related markets which are not (yet) dominated by Microsoft. Additionally, competitive problems may also arise from several certification infrastructures that are required by the concept of "trusted computing platforms".
21. Koenig / Neumann, TCPA, TCG, Palladium und NGSCB - Anforderungen des EG-Wettbewerbsrechts an vertrauenswürdige Systemumgebungen, MMR 2003, at p. 695. (short [34])

At the moment, a new technical concept is discussed under the topic of "Trusted Computing", which could lead to substantial changes to the computer industry as well as to the downstream markets of entertainment and media industry. On the basis of a specification adopted by a group of leading hardware and software companies, the introduction of trusted computing platforms primarily aims at increasing the security of these systems. However, this will probably lead to an industry standard that will have impact on the level of competition in many markets. The same applies to the trustworthy operating system which Microsoft is currently developing. The article explains the technology of trusted computing systems and discusses the impact of EC competition law on the introduction of such systems.
20. Wolff / Neumann, Anordnung der Auskunft über Telekommunikationsverbindungsdaten gegen unbekannt?, NStZ 2003, at p. 404. (short [32])

According to § 100g I of the German code of criminal procedure (StPO), providers of telecommunications services can be ordered to give information about certain kinds of traffic data. According to § 100h I 1 StPO, this order generally has to contain the name, the address and the identifier of the telecommunications access point of the person affected. The meaning and the scope of this duty to identify the person affected are unclear. However, whether investigations against an unknown person can be successful often depends on them. The article deals with the question, if orders against an unknown person are possible on the basis of § 100h I 1 StPO.

The interception of telecommunications (§ 100a of the German code of criminal procedure, StPO) and the order to provide information about telecommunications traffic data (§ 100g StPO) are important instruments for the clarification of facts in the context of criminal proceedings. According to §§ 100b II 2 StPO and 100h I 1 StPO, the relevant authorities have to identify the affected person by name, address, and the identifier of the telecommunications interface, in order to take such measures. It is unclear, if this information is dispensable, in the case that the identity of the affected person is unknown to the authorities. However, this question would lose its relevance in forensic practice, if the information required could easily be gathered via the disclosure procedures provided by the German Telecommunications Act (TKG). The article deals with the range of these provisions.

The article shows the legislative possibilities for the adaption of the new regulatory framework in the field of telecommunications and their limitations stemming from constitutional law. Furthermore, the article outlines the possibilities for an improvement of the administrative procedures and the procedures of legal protection.
17. Vogelsang / Koenig / Kühling / Loetz / Neumann, "Workable Competition" in Telecommunications Markets - The Example of Germany, C.T.L.R. 2003, at p. 68. (short [28])

Immediately after the full liberalisation of the German telecommunications markets with the revocation of the last monopolies on January 1, 1998, there was undoubtedly no workable competition ("funktionsfähiger Wettbewerb") in the regulated telecommunications markets. Thus, an exact determination of the term "workable competition" ("funktionsfähiger Wettbewerb") at first seemed expendable, even though the Telecommunications Act accords the term a central role as a regulatory goal in section 2 (2) no. 2 as well as a yardstick for the assessment of an optimisation or revocation of sector-specific regulation in section 81 (3). However, the increase in competition, which has occurred in the meantime, makes it necessary to define the concept of workable competition ("funktionsfähiger Wettbewerb") more precisely. To provide such a definition from both an economic and a legal perspective is the concern of the following article. This is not only of relevance for the regulation of the German telecommunications markets and similar regulatory environments - like the telecommunications law of Austria. Rather, it concerns the fundamental question of workability in telecommunications markets. Special attention will also be given to the new European legal framework and its paradigm of "effective competition".
16. Koenig / Neumann, Telekommunikationsrechtliche Regulierung von Domainnamen, CR 2003, at p. 182. (short [27])

ENUM, a method for mapping telephone numbers on Internet domain names, is said to have the potential to foster convergence of addressing mechanisms of the traditional telecommunications sector and the Internet. In contrast to telephone numbers, which are controled by the Regulatory Authority for Telecommunications and Post (RegTP), domain names in the top level domain ".de" are currently controled by DENIC, a privatly organised cooperative. ENUM seems to create a name space that could eliminate this differentiation. Furthermore, the German Telecommunications Act (TKG) is currently under reform. This reform primarily aims to implement the new regulatory framework of the European Community for electronic communications networks and services. This framework is based, inter alia, on the principle of technological neutrality, which could also require regulatory control of Internet adressing mechanisms.

The complete modernisation of the German data protection law is one of the core reform projects for the new parliamentary term. It shall, inter alia, include the integration of the sector-specific data protection law in the field of telecommunications into the general Federal Law of Data Protection (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz, BDSG). The article deals with this aspect of the modernisation debate.

The German Telecommunications Act (TKG) accords the term workable competition ("funktionsfähiger Wettbewerb") a central role as a regulatory goal in § 2 (2) No. 2 as well as a yardstick for the assessment of an optimisation or revocation of sector-specific regulation in § 81 (3). Nonetheless, an exact determination of this term is still missing. Immediately following the final liberalisation of the German telecommunications markets, this seemed expendable, since there was undoubtledly no workable competition in the regulated markets. However, the increase in competition, which has occured in the meantime, makes it necessary to outline the concept of workable competition more precisely. The article tries to make this concept more concrete from an legal and economic perspective.
13. Koenig / Neumann, Die neue Top-Level-Domain ".eu" als Beitrag zum Auf- und Ausbau transeuropäischer Netze?, EuZW 2002, 485. (short [17])

By introducing the top level domain ".eu", the European Community did not only enter new ground in regulating scarce ressources in the Internet. Moreover, the provisions of the EC treaty on trans-European networks were, for the first time ever, activated to pass a measure in the field of telecommunications which has general application and is binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States. The article critically reviews this measure of the Community legislator, which may get exemplary importance with regard to a future removal of sector-specific regulation of competition in telecommunications.
12. Koenig / Neumann, Europas Identität im Internet - die Einführung der Top-Level-Domain ".eu", JurPC-WebDok. 154/2002. (short [16])

The introduction of an own European top level domain ".eu" is the most ambitious project of the European Community with regard to the regulation of scarce ressources in the global Internet so far. The article contains a first overall view of the regulation which sets up the foundation for the new top level domain and which recently entered into force. By discussing the legal basis which was chosen for the regulation, general problems of the provision of the EC treaty concerning trans-European networks are addressed at the same time.
11. Koenig / Neumann, Die Übermittlung von Entgeltdaten an Dritte durch Telekommunikationsdiensteanbieter, RTkom 2001, at p. 226. (short [12])

With the introduction of new telecommunications products based on the possibility of a case-by-case use (call-by-call, internet-by-call etc.), the subscriber got the possibility to use the services of a large number of providers. This, inter alia, had consequences for the billing of the used services, because the owed amounts often are very low on the one hand, and because the service provider does not know the identity of the user at first on the other, if not a prior registration is required as an exeption. As a consequence, the subscriber increasingly is confronted not only with the other party of the service contract, but also with other companies involved in the billing procedure. Because of the high level of protection for telecommunications data, this leads to complicated questions of telecommunications data protection law which the present article deals with.
10. Koenig / Neumann, Funktionsherrschaft und gemeinsame Infrastrukturnutzung beim Aufbau eines UMTS-Netzes, CR 2001, at p. 589. (short [11])

After the auctioning of licenses for the operation of networks for the provision of mobile communications services of the third generation (Universal Mobile Telecommunications System, UMTS) in August 2000, it has been discussed whether to reduce the costs that are incurred with the setting up of a nationwide UMTS network by sharing parts of the infrastructure (so called "infrastructure sharing"). With a paper on infrastructure sharing principles, the German national regulatory authority (RegTP) has defined the framework on 5 June 2001, under which infrastructure sharing is possible without a violation of the UMTS licenses. The article gives an introduction to the technical basics of infrastructure sharing and explains the fundamental principles which were laid down in the paper against the background of the applicable provisions of the licenses and the telecommunications law.
9. Koenig / Neumann, Die Telekommunikations-Datenschutzverordnung im Verordnungsgebungsverfahren, RDV 2001, at p. 117. (short [10])

On 17 May 2000, the Federal Cabinet of Ministers agreed upon the amended version of a Federal Regulation concerning the Protection of Personal Data in the Field of Telecommunications (TDSV). Before the new TDSV could entered into force on 21 December 2000, the Federal Council (Bundesrat) requested several modifications. The article explains and comments on those modifications against the background of their legal context.
8. Koenig / Neumann, Gemeinsame Infrastrukturnutzung beim Aufbau eines UMTS-Netzwerks und das Gebot "wettbewerblicher Unabhängigkeit", K & R 2001, at p. 281. (short [9])

The six companies which were granted licenses for the operation of networks for the provision of services of the Universal Mobile Telecommunication System (UMTS) in August 2000 do not only have to bear the regulatory burden of 16 billions Deutsche Mark each. They also have to set up a UMTS network within a very short period of time. The costs of this are approximated to amount another 5 to 10 billions Deutsche Mark for each licensee. The article deals with the question to which extent telecommunications law allows the UMTS licensees to share the costs of setting up the network at least in an initial stage by sharing parts of the network infrastructure.
7. Koenig / Neumann, Telekommunikationsrechtliche Optimierung künftiger Lizenz- und Frequenzversteigerungen, ZRP 2001, at p. 252. (short [8])

The procedure in which the licences for the operation of networks for Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) services were assigned in the year 2000 caused a lot of sensation. The initial euphoria about the pecuniar concomitants of this procedure has been replaced by a more sober examination. Critics are afraid that the reduction of profits caused by the auction might have a sustainable negative influence on the growth potential of the telecommunications sector. Furthermore, the procedure itself has become more and more subject of a critical examination. The article takes the current state of discussion into account and tries to draw the conclusions for future auctions of licenses and frequencies which are considered to be the most important ones from the perspective of telecommunications law.
6. Koenig / Neumann, Die neue Telekommunikations-Datenschutzverordnung, K & R 2000, at p. 417. (short [6])

Of all the changes the German telecommunications law faces in the year 2000, the rather seldom examined sector of the law concerning the protection of personal data in the field of telecommunications takes an exposed position: On 17 May 2000, the Federal Cabinet of Ministers agreed upon the amended version of a Federal Regulation concerning the Protection of Personal Data in the Field of Telecommunications. The article explains the new provisions introduced by the regulation.
5. Koenig / Neumann, Zusammenschaltungs-Entgeltregulierung unterhalb der Schwelle "beträchtlicher Marktmacht"?, RTkom 2000, at p. 27. (short [5])

The Third and the Fourth Part of the German Telecommunications Act (TKG) allow far-reaching interventions into the contracts that would have been freely negotiated between the companies acting on the German telecommunications markets otherwise. The price regulation (paras. 23 et seq. TKG) and the regulations concerning network access and interconnection (para. 33 et seq. TKG) directly affect the main competitive instruments of control and allocation. With regard to the economical developments that have taken place in the field of telecommunications as well as with regard to the requirements of Community law, the field of application of those regulations has to be examined. The article focusses such reflections on the question whether the price regulation is applicable to interconnection orders based on para. 37 TKG.
4. Koenig / Neumann, Rechtliches und organisatorisches Umfeld der Satellitenkommunikation, MMR 2000, at p. 151. (short [4])

When the company Iridium had to file for bancruptcy according to chapter 11 of the US bancruptcy law in summer 1999 only a few months after its global satellite telephone network had entered into operation, satellite communications became subject to public discussion. Space more and more has become a field of interest for telecommunications purposes and with the Iridium fleet of 66 satellite, the boom of the telecommunications industry finally had reached extraterrestrial dimensions. The importance of satellite communications technology for the establishment of the information society therefore is not to be underestimated, particularly since the practical requirements also have changed with the process of globalisation. Mobile communications, for example, has become very popular, and intercontinental telecommunications have lost their exceptional character a long time ago. Unfortunately, the construction of the legal and organisational environment, that takes part in forming this development on the one hand and often is overtaken by it on the other, is far from easy to understand. The article tries to give an introductry overview, while especially taking into account the activities of the European Community. In doing so, the main focus lies on question of the management of radio frequencies, whereas the so called "earth segment" is mainly left aside.
3. Koenig / Neumann, Internet-Protokoll-Adressen als "Nummern" im Sinne des Telekommunikationsrechts?, K & R 1999, at p. 145. (short [2])

When the German Telecommunications Act (TKG) entered into force on 1 August 1996, the "Internet" had already started booming. Nonetheless - and in contrast to the adoption of the German Law on Information and Communications Services (IuKDG) in 1997 - it was neither mentioned in the text of the law nor in its reasons. With regard to the character of Internet addresses as "scarce resources", the question arises whether the numbering regime of para. 43 TKG is applicable to the Internet.
2. Helmke / Müller / Neumann, Internet-Telephony between TKG, IuKDG and the states treaty covering media services, IJCLP 1/1998 WebDoc. 22. (short [1])

By the introduction of the Internet telephony, a new service has been established that is not only characterised by the classical attributes of Internet services, but also by those of ordinary telephony. That is why it is necessary to evaluate Internet telephony regarding the German multimedia law.
1. Helmke / Müller / Neumann, Internet-Telefonie zwischen TKG, IuKDG und Mediendienste-Staatsvertrag, JurPC-WebDok. 93/1998. (short [0])

The article deals with the question whether internet telephony only falls under the German telecommunications act (TKG) or whether provisions of the German Law on Information and Communications Services (IuKDG) or the States Treaty Covering Media Services (MDStV) are applicable as well.

Security of information technology has become more and more subject to (governmental) regulation and private regulation. System integrity is an important aspect with increasing relevance in mobile environments as well. The article uses the example of "trusted computing" to show the possibilities and limitations of coordinative standard-setting as a means of private regulation with the goal of improving system integrity that lies both in the commercial interest privat companies as well as in the general interest.

Software always has been a resource which was hardly bound to national frontiers; consequently, there have been rather few possibilities for the individual countries to influence the developments on this sector. Therefore, the goals and initiatives of inter- and supranationals organisations like especially the European Community (EC) are especially important for the relevant markets and actors. The article shows how the EC currently - at the moment rather fragmentarily - addresses open source software. This is done by refering to interoperability measures and the directive on the patentability of computer-implemented inventions (software patents) on the background of the primary law of the EC.

The cooperation of leading companies from the hardware and software industry within the Trusted Computing Platform Alliance and now also within the Trusted Computing Group is of utmost interest for competition law as the guard of workable markets and free competition. Equally, the announced development of a trustworthy operating system can become subject to a competition law analysis if it is developed by a dominant undertaking. On the basis of an introduction to the technical and economic background of trusted computing which is especially focussed on the impacts on competition, the article explains the competition law framework, which will have to be taken into account when this new technology is introduced into the market.

While innovation requires freedom, regulation arranges spheres of freedeom. The article deals with this potential area of tension and discusses different approaches on how to influence the process of innovation by means of regulation. This includes an approach of a proactive regulation of innovation, the general competition law as an approach that mostly takes influence on an ex post basis, and sector-specific regulation with the regulation in the field of telecommunications as a practical example.

Nicht nur die Verwaltung knapper und endlicher Güter muss in einem breiteren Kontext gesehen werden. Dasselbe gilt für regulatorische Maßnahmen, welche die Entwicklung und Implementierung von Telekommunikationsstandards betreffen. Informationstechnologiestandards, einschließlich Telekommunikationsstandards, haben in den letzten zwanzig Jahren erheblich an Bedeutung gewonnen. Einerseits sind internationale Standards für die internationale Telekommunikation erforderlich, um nicht zu sagen grundlegend. Andererseits ist die Standardisierung eine sehr komplexe Aufgabe, da Standards wettbewerbsbeschränkende Auswirkungen haben können: sie können Innovationen behindern, ein bestimmtes Stadium der technischen Entwicklung festschreiben und Marktteilnehmer vom Wettbewerb ausschließen. Darüber hinaus können Standards sogar erst in der Zukunft entstehende Märkte antizipieren und vorformen. Aus all diesen Gründen sind Telekommunikationsstandards auch für den Binnenmarkt der Europäischen Gemeinschaft von großer Bedeutung. Nach einer kurzen Einführung in die Theorie und die ökonomische Relevanz von Standards wird in diesem Beitrag der europäische Rahmen zur Regulierung der Standardisierung im Telekommunikationsbereich detailliert beschrieben.

Not only the administration of scarce and finite resources has to be seen in a broader context. The same applies to regulatory measures concerning the elaboration and implementation of telecommunications standards. Information technology standards, including telecommunications standards, have become an area of fast growing interest over the past twenty years. On the one hand, international standards are necessary, not to say essential for international telecommunications. On the other hand, standardisation is a rather complex matter because standards may have restrictive effects on competition: they may hinder innovation, freeze a partiular stage of technological development, and block market participants from competition. Moreover, standards might even anticipate and determine markets that will only develop in the future. As a consequence, telecommunications standards play a very important role for the European Community single market as well. Following a brief introduction to the theory and the economics of standards, the European regulatory framework for standardisation in the telecommunications setor is disussed in detail.

The regulation of most special sectors, i. e. satellite communications, Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) or Internet services to name the most obvious cases, has to be seen in the context of global regulations, dependencies, and institutions and cannot be understood without the knowledge of this framework. This applies especially to the administration of scarce and finite resources, particularly frequencies and numbers, addresses, and names. Therefore, the article first gives a short overview of these essential technicological keywords as an introduction to the European regulatory framework for the administration of scarce and finite resources. Subsequently, the article describes the regulatory framework in detail.

The current German Telecommunications Act (TKG) is designed to cope with the traditional markets for telecommunications. However, it is only partially ready for the regulatory challenges of the Internet markets. On February, 2nd, 2003, the department VII of the Federal Ministry for Economics and Labour has presented a first working draft for the reform of the TKG. The article deals with the question, to what degree the draft eliminates the deficits of the current telecommunications law with regard to the Internet markets.
