Do I have to submit a (modified) omission statement?
The submission of a (modified) declaration of omission makes no sense to you, if you do not have to hand in any omission!

In certain cases, we always advise against submitting a declaration of omission.
Caution: Clients often tell us that law firms, for example, from Cologne or Berlin (of course, not us) for more action against a warning from Daniel Sebastian demand more than stately package prices. We have heard of fees of up to 600.00 EUR. Despite this, from our point of view, in no relation to the case standing fees, the persons affected receive however for this no professional argument with the concrete case. Rather, only a standardized letter including "modified" declaration of omission is sent to lawyer Daniel Sebastian. However, this does not constitute a professional and in your interest proceeding against the warning.
When is a legal defense against a warning from Daniel Sebastian successful?
Legal defense makes sense if you have not posted any copyrighted files on a swap meet, but can not rule out that your children, your partner, your roommate or any other third party is responsible for the infringement. In these so-called third-party cases, the courts are increasingly deciding in favor of the connecting owners. But even if you yourself are responsible for the copyright infringement, a defense against a warning from Daniel Sebastian may be useful. In particular, the required compensation often seems exaggerated. After all, a warning can also fail due to formal mistakes.
Warning letter from Daniel Sebastian to ignore?
No, do not! Get active! Based on our experience, you will find out for yourself that the strategy of simply ignoring a warning from Daniel Sebastian does not help. If you do not respond to a warning letter, there are usually only further written requests to fulfill the claim from the warning. But at the latest a few months before expiry of the limitation period, the claims of DigiRights Administration GmbH are often asserted in court. As a rule, it will be more expensive as a result.
In addition, for the success of your legal defense, it is important that you document the facts and record how it came to the warning letter. It is often very difficult to reconstruct these things years later in a judicial process. If you can not do that, you risk a costly process loss.
Just sign and pay nothing or 100,00 EUR?
