In the documentary, the Schumacher's family lawyer, Felix Damm, was asked about the family's greatest legal success.
"Of course, success is measured by the sum of identified and prevented editorial violations of privacy," he told LTO. "In cases of severe legal violations, this is associated with the enforcement of monetary compensation in addition to the prohibition of further publication.
"For example, when a magazine's front-page headline 'He is no longer with us' created the tasteless impression that Michael Schumacher had died. The publisher had to pay €100,000 for this sentence.
"I am not aware of any case where a higher compensation had to be paid for the publication of a sentence. This can certainly be considered a success."
On December 14, the five-part series will be accessible on German broadcaster ARD's media library, followed by its broadcast on December 28.
