Markenbusiness: eBay Must Partially Delete 60 Million Euro Trademark in Europe.
The ultimate action for the time being is the deletion of the trademark by eBay in product class 28 which was requested in the ruling from the Court. "At any rate, the eBay company has therefore voluntarily relinquished 1/5 th of its trademark protection," according to lawyer Karsten Prehm from Prehm & Klare Trademark Lawyers (www.markenservice.com) from Kiel (Germany), who is representing the owner of the more senior trademark. "This case shows very strikingly that it is irrelevant as to whether the matter concerns one of the most successful internet companies in the world or a one-man undertaking. What is crucial is this -- who has secured his rights earliest and then monitored them regularly."
