The judgement of the German Supreme Court – Docket No.: ZB 36/93 – the judgement of the Federal Patent Court of 14th March 1996
When evaluating the possibility of confusion within the meaning of § 9 (I) No. 2 of the Trademark Act – according to BGH GRUR 1977, 218 (MERCOL) – it is taken into account that from the point of view of the market in the case of combined signs the manufacturer’s name as part of the product name is not as important as the combined sign.
