"We are fine" ("Uns geht es gut") is a X Filme Production. We have made contracts with the Cast and Crew.
As our contract says, it is not allowed to name Andreas Sinakowski as the writer. He has to be names as Alan Smithee ONLY! Please delete the fasle information and name Alan Smithee only!

In general: How do we prevent those false information on imdb? Why can external people change the credits of our productions?

Truth probably is that if the real name behind the "Alan Smithee" credit is known/confirmed, then it's listed to the IMDB:

 Andreas Sinakowski (as Alan Smithee)

It would be "false" info not to list the real name if it's known. Production companies, executives, producers etc doesn't ultimately control "information" on IMDB.
