24. September 2020 - PANArt updates their history article
PANArt updates their article “The History of PANArt” with the sentence:
“The regional courts of Düsseldorf, Berlin and Hamburg issue preliminary injunctions against producers of handpans. After a hearing in Hamburg, you judged the Hang sculpture to be protected by copyright.”
As far as is known, however, these lawsuits were actually directed against dealers and resellers (rspctvl. one dealer as known at this time) and not against manufacturers. Details about the first two negotiations are not made public at this time.
