The article discusses the implications of older jurisprudence on questions relating to media, copyright, and library law in Germany. The author maintains that the dissolution of the traditional Bundespost (federal postal system) and its codified regulations should aim for the preservation of those legal materials as they might fruitfully apply to an era of postal privatization and modern media law. The old regulations are also said to have an intrinsic interest value.
