Hollywood Chamber Wins Suit Against German Stores Use of Sign, Walk of Fame

Mensing department store and shopfitter Schleifenbaum Design & Project had claimed that the Chamber had no claims whatsoever over their use of the image of the Hollywood sign and Walk of Fame because they did not have German trademarks. But the court in Bochum ruled that the replication of the sign and the Walk of Fame constitute unfair exploitation of the reputation (esteem) and unfair transfer of the image. The Chamber, along with co-plaintiff Global Icons, had cited German law against unfair competition. The courts determination that these companies violated the Chambers rights sends a message that companies outside the U.S. cannot violate our trademark and other rights, said Leron Gubler, president and CEO of the Hollywood Chamber.
