  • „Fracking“ – Beitrag zur Energieautarkheit oder Umweltzerstörung in großem Stil?

    Nun hat die Fracking-Welle also auch Österreich im Griff. Während bisher die nationale Erdgasförderung kaum von der Öffentlichkeit wahrgenommen wurde und vielmehr die großen internationalen Pipeline-Projekte und die damit verbundene Versorgungssicherheit respektive die Unabhängigkeit von Russland bzw. von den Transit-Staaten im Vordergrund stand, rüsten sich aufgrund großer Funde im Weinviertel nunmehr Energieunternehmen auf der einen und Umweltorganisationen sowie Anrainer auf der anderen Seite zum Schlagabtausch in Österreich. Der Gesetzgeber reagierte darauf mit einer Novellierung des Umweltverträglichkeitsprüfungsgesetzes durch Implementierung eines neuen Tatbestandes.

  • Finally! Some Room Left for Direct Transactions with Securities of Moldovan Joint-Stock Companies

    It is no secret that the Act no.171/2012 on Capital Markets (which entered into force in 2013), together with numerous changes to Act no.1134/1997, and in addition the recent abolition of Act no.199/1998 on Securities Markets, cumulatively have significantly changed the rules of direct transactions with securities in Moldovan joint-stock companies ("JSC"). As a consequence, fears arose that such possibility would no longer exist. read more...

  • Austria: Hyperlinking to online-radio broadcasts

    The relationship between hyperlinking and copyright is much debated. Although recent decisions of the ECJ have shed some light on the question, many questions still remain when hyperlinking to copyrighted content should be considered a copyright infringement. Some of these questions have been addressed by the Austrian Supreme Court in a recent judgment (Decision by the Supreme Court dated 23 February 2016, 4 Ob 249/15v). read more...

  • How about a New Arbitration Act in Hungary?

    The Hungarian arbitration Act (Act LXXI of 1994 on arbitration, “the Act”) has barely “turned 22” and the pressure to replace it with new legislation has popped up. Considering the current, rapid reform of effective laws in Hungary – meaning that relatively new legislation which has been in force for only five to ten years has been set aside to introduce new legislation –the push to introduce new law on arbitration law is no surprise. read more...
