Atze Schröder on stageThursday, March 15, 2007 at 20:11 | Posted in Freedom of speech, Germany, Legal, Press freedom | Leave a comment
Since I do not watch TV, I had a look at YouTube to see who the clown called Atze Schröder is.
Hubertus Albers is a German actor who has a popular TV show where he appears as Atze Schröder. His real name is common knowledge in Germany, it appears in a trailer after each episode. However, Mr Albers sued a German paper and was granted a court order gagging the paper from printing his real name an publishing photos of him without the wig he wears as the show character. The court quoted the actor’s right to privacy.
