The date to announce a decision today about the preliminary injunction
against Wikimedia Deutschland e.V. was cancelled today after the
lawyer for the parents of the dead hacker Tron started questioning the
procuration of the lawyer for Wikimedia Deutschland. This is
considered quite an unusual step since the judge had already announced
that he does not agree with the argument that the postmortal rights of

The new date for the decision will be the 9th of February 2006.

explained the situation. Those of you who "Sprechen Sie Deutsh" might

(which was given at the request of Tron's lawyer) was broken several
