Abstract

This case note follows up on a previous article published in this law review about the managing director of the German CompuServe subsidiary, Mr. Felix Somm, who was indicted in 1996 and sentenced to two years imprisonment on probation in May 1998 by a judge in Munich. In December 1999, the Munich Court of Appeals overruled the decision of the lower court and acquitted Mr. Somm.
