OLG Cologne prohibits use of www.wir-sind-afd.de domain

This post is also available in: Deutsch

The Cologne Higher Regional Court (OLG) prohibited the use of the domain www.wir-sind-afd.de, rejecting an appeal against the identical judgment of the Cologne Regional Court.

The Cologne Higher Regional Court states:

Contrary to the view of the defendant, the abbreviated designation “B-Party” is protected as a name under Section 12 of the German Civil Code. This is not contradicted by the fact that the plaintiff uses the name “B.” in accordance with § 1 sentence 1 of its articles of association and that the name “B-Partei” in accordance with § 1 sentence 2 of its articles of association is merely the abbreviated name of the party.

 

The full text of the ruling is available here.
