Lubberger Lehment achieves victory for Coty over Aldi Süd

The Regional Court in Stuttgart held that the sale of “Joop” and “Calvin Klein” perfumes in Aldi supermarkets is detrimental to the prestigious character of the brands and therefore infringes Coty’s trademark rights. The court’s decision is based on the sales environment in which the products are offered in the Aldi supermarkets. With the decision, the Regional Court (case ref. 2 U 321/20) has confirmed the decision of the court of first instance. We congratulate our Berlin partners Eva Maierski and Dr. Rani Mallick on this success. The JUVE press release can be found here.
