Nctm successfully defended the Bolzano Christmas Market trademark

Nctm successfully assisted the Municipality of Bolzano in a precautionary procedure concerning the “counterfeiting and parasitic” use of the “Mercatini di Bolzano” trademark by an event planning company.

The trial ended with a settlement in court, whereby the counterparty acknowledged the reputation of the “Mercatino di Natale di Bolzano” trademark, which is the well-known name of the event organized by the Municipality for many years. The defendant has also agreed to refrain from any misleading use of the word “Bolzano” and from violating any other Industrial Property rights belonging to the Municipality.

The Intellectual Property team of Nctm Studio Legale was coordinated by Paolo Lazzarino, with the assistance of Roberto Cesaro.
