According to the article, it’s a copyright issue. Usually, parodies and satire are exempt from those laws, but not if they could result in a serious and unwarranted damage to someone’s reputation. “Business honor” seems to be a technical term for the reputation of organizations rather than individuals.

that is my point. he doesn’t write that for all the new things posted…

It was a joke. Contrasting the fact that Germans have a word for business honour when English doesn’t because businesses in English-speaking countries are expected to act like sociopaths.


#8

Well no. German words are compounded. The literal translation is simply business-honour.

Proverbially speaking, of course.
