BEC monthly newsletter 4/2014

  Revolutionary Change in Czech Civil Law
At the beginning of the year the new Czech Civic Code has been introduced. Have a read about what impacts it has on expats living in the Czech Republic. The first article from Deloitte on this topic deals with various areas of everyday life such as moral rights, family law, and inheritance law. Did you - for example - know that you now need a person’s approval not only when you want to publish a photo, but also before taking it?
