Marion Goller

Lawyer, Media Kanzlei

Germany

Bio

Marion is a bar-admitted lawyer at Media Kanzlei, one of Germany’s premier law firms for media and IT law. She advises private clients and companies on questions of copyright law, IT contracts, media and competition law. She has specialized in particular on open licensing and injunctive relief against Content ID and upload filters.

Contribution to Legal Tech

As an experienced IT lawyer, Marion is among the most engaging and outspoken advocates for open technology and knowledge commons in the German legal profession. She argued Germany’s first reported case against the abuse of Content ID, establishing that such abuse of filtering technology can itself be copyright infringement. In addition to her work as an attorney, Marion combines academic research with broader outreach activities that engage a wide general audience. In addition to her research on topics such as intellectual property and open data in film and media studies (DOI 10.17176/20180515-233758), Marion raises public awareness for issues of law and technology through a variety of communication outlets, such as blog posts (e.g., on iRights.info or oabooks.de), televized science slams (e.g., ZKM Open Codes 2018), or panel discussions (e.g., at OTOS, Open Technology for an Open Science). Marion is also a first-generation fellow in Wikimedia’s competitive Free Knowledge Fellowship, as well as a member of the German chapter of Creative Commons, further establishing the societal relevance of her research.
