Podcast: Ist der Widerruf einer E-Mail möglich?

Whether in the private or professional sphere, e-mails determine our everyday lives. However, although billions of e-mails are sent worldwide every day, the case law on this is not yet strongly developed in Germany.

This has now changed somewhat with the BGH’s decision on access to e-mails. In this episode, research assistants Johannes Müller and Nicolas John discuss the legal basis of postal access to offers and show the differences to sending e-mails based on the ruling. In doing so, they illustrate what effects legal basics have in everyday life and how this can ultimately affect the handling of emails in everyday business.
