Summary/Abstract: In today’s digital world, in which the copyrights and intellectual property (music, pictures, movies...) are copied and replicated free of charge and in excellent quality over the Internet with tremendous speed, is almost every one of us confronted every single day with a complicated issue of copyrights. The territorial jurisdiction of the copyright law is facing new challenges in the digital world and above all on the Internet. Court practice review of the European Court of Justice and the German courts indicates legal problems in practice. Besides that, courts through interpretation of the European law provisions directly affect the protection of copyright in the digital world. This role of case practice in the creation of copyright protection contributes the fact, that in the digital world technical achievements are rapidly developing. On the other hand the political processes are extremely lengthy, so that the courts make their decisions quicker and create the law. Every day use of someone else’s copyright works by file sharing service providers or link setters opens questions of legal liability for the copyright infringement The use of Creative Commons licensed copyright works open up a new dimension in the implementation of copyright protection in the digital world.
