Legal Notice: Prohibition to Record Courses

The recording of classes (video, image, and/or audio recordings) is prohibited both for classroom teaching on campus (cf. § 6 [3] of the WU House Regulations) and for online teaching. Recording is only permitted with the lecturer’s explicit consent.          

Recording lectures without consent may violate the instructor’s personal rights, data protection rights, and intellectual property rights, and may also infringe on the rights of other students in the course.     

For this reason, WU and its teachers expressly reserve the right to take legal action against unlawful recording, reproduction, distribution, or publication of content protected by copyright, privacy, or data protection laws.

If there is any suspicion of criminal behavior, WU as a university is obliged to file a report with the public prosecutor’s office pursuant to § 78 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (Strafprozessordnung, StPO).
