  3. 3. Heroes and influences De l'Esprit des Lois The Spirit of the Laws 18 January 1689 - 10 February 1755 Charles-Louis de Secondat, baron de La Brède et de Montesquieu „ De l'Esprit des Lois ( The Spirit of the Laws ) was originally published anonymously in 1748 and quickly rose to a position of enormous influence. In France, it met with an unfriendly reception from both supporters and opponents of the regime. The Roman Catholic Church banned l'Esprit – along with many of Montesquieu's other works – in 1751 and included it on the papacy's notorious Index. It received the highest praise from the rest of Europe, especially Britain. „ Source: Wikipedia, 10th December 2008

I, S. 2913) of 13th December 2006. </li></ul><ul><li>The IWG entered into force on 19th December 2006 and is said to be a 1:1 implementation of the EU PSI directive. </li></ul><ul><li>The IWG is a Bundesgesetz based on Art 74 I Nr. 11 GG (Recht und Wirtschaft) and as such applies to the Federation, Federal States and the municipal administration. </li></ul><ul><li>The IWG itself does not create a right of access to official information. However, the application of the IWG assumes that such a right is already in place. </li></ul><ul><li>The decisions as to whether official information may be re-used and the details of that use are the responsibility of the public authority concerned. </li></ul>3. New rules of the network economy – The EU PSI Directive
  16. 16. Re-use of public sector information Access to public sector information 16 16 16 16 Informationsweitervewendungsgesetz (IWG) vom 13. Dezember 2006 (BGBl. I S. 2913) Informations- freiheitsgesetz (IFG) vom 5.9.2005 (BGBl. I S. 2722) Umwelt-informationsgesetz (UIG) i.d.F. der Bek. vom 22.12.2004 (BGBl. I S. 3704) Verbraucher- informationsgesetz (VIG) vom 5.11.2007 (BGBl. I S. 2558) Bundes- datenschutzgesetz (BDSG) i.d.F. der Bek. vom 14.1.2003 (BGBl. I S. 66) Geändet durch §13 Abs. 1 G vom 5.9.2005 (BGBL. I S.2722) 3. New rules of the network economy – Legal conduits (Overview)
  17. 17. Note: The situation regarding both specialist and general rights of access to official information has improved dramatically over the last 5 years. However, the IWG which implements the EU PSI Directive does not itself provide a right of access to official information. Rather it assumes that a right of access to official information has been provided for by FOI legislation already in place. Only Ten of the sixteen Federal States have so far enacted FOI-legislation. 3. New rules of the network economy – Legal conduits (Detail)
