"BERLINER TAGESZEITUNG" refers in its work to applicable press laws, including the Berlin Press Act, dated 15 June 1965, where § 1 Freedom of the Press states:
(1) The press is free. It serves the free democratic basic order. In Germany, freedom of the press is guaranteed by Article 5 (1) sentence 2 of the Basic Law (GG).
(2) The freedom of the press shall be subject only to the restrictions directly authorised by the Basic Law and, within this framework, by the laws in force.
(3) Special measures of any kind which interfere with the freedom of the press shall be prohibited.

(2) The press shall check all news for content, truth and origin with the due diligence required by the circumstances before disseminating them.

References to further legal regulations:
In criminal proceedings, journalists are generally entitled to a special right to refuse to testify (section 53, paragraph 1, no. 5 of the Code of Criminal Procedure - StPO). In addition, there is also a prohibition of seizure (section 97, paragraph 5 of the Code of Criminal Procedure) for material researched by journalists themselves. This includes documents, data carriers and other materials in the custody of editorial offices, publishing houses or a printing house. The ban on seizure can also be restricted, but the restriction must be explicitly weighed against press freedom and ordered by a judge.
"BERLINER TAGESZEITUNG" articles are based on current German press laws, which almost unanimously state: "The press fulfils a public task in particular by procuring and disseminating news, commenting, criticising or otherwise contributing to the free formation of individual and public opinion.

Note on external links:
According to § 5 para. 1 TDG "BERLINER TAGESZEITUNG" is only responsible for its own content. According to § 5 para. 2 TDG, "BERLINER TAGESZEITUNG" is only responsible for links to third-party content if "BERLINER TAGESZEITUNG" has positive knowledge of illegal or criminal content and it is technically possible and reasonable to prevent its use. "BERLINER TAGESZEITUNG" is also not obliged to periodically check the content of third-party offers for their illegality or criminal liability. As soon as we learn of any illegal content on the websites of third parties, the corresponding link/contribution will be removed from our site.
Furthermore, we would like to expressly emphasise at this point that we have no influence whatsoever on the design and content of the linked pages. - In its judgement of 12 May 1998 - 312 O 85/98 - "Liability for Links", the Regional Court (LG) of Hamburg ruled that the inclusion of links also leads to co-responsibility of the material offered via these links. This can be prevented - according to the Regional Court of Hamburg - by expressly distancing oneself from these contents. The same is hereby declared.
In 2005, the so-called Heise forum judgement (Case No. 324 O 721/05) attracted a great deal of attention. In the publisher's internet forum, there had been a call to paralyse another internet site by means of a DoS attack. The publisher deleted this call immediately after becoming aware of it, but refused to issue a cease-and-desist declaration. Both the Regional Court of Hamburg and the Higher Regional Court of Hamburg affirmed this injunctive relief. The legal opinion of the Hamburg Higher Regional Court is considered outdated by the decision of the Federal Court of Justice (BGH) of March 2007 - https://dejure.org/dienste/vernetzung/rechtsprechung?Gericht=BGH&Datum=27.03.2007&Aktenzeichen=VI%20ZR%20101/06.
However, since the case in question was an injunction proceeding, the legal process ended with the instance of the Higher Regional Court, and the judgement of the Hamburg Higher Regional Court is still legally binding. Heise-Verlag did not seek a main action in this case. This means that the forum operator is fully liable! Verdict: http://hudoc.echr.coe.int/webservices/content/pdf/003-5110487-6300958
