Pralinenform II, infringement proceedings, German Federal Supreme Court, 22 April 2010, Docket No. I ZR 17/05
The German Federal Supreme Court decided in a trademark case that the mere presentation of products at a German trade fair is not automatically regarded as an offer of these products or as a putting of these products on the market. It is open whether this decision may be applied in patent infringement cases.
