Decision of LG Frankfurt / Main (Regional Court Frankfurt/Main) of 27/04/2009, file number: 3-06 O 1/09

The judges in the Regional Court Frankfurt have decided that merely the hint of the ebay shop seller, assuring that the stove on sale has been covered with stove blacking, is not enough to disclose the effectiveness of the stove. Knowing that the stove blacking can indeed come off and can smell after firing, a usual potential buyer cannot conclude that the stove does not work at all.

Judgement of OLG Hamm (HRC Hamm) of 02/04/2009, file number: 4 U 213/08

Once again a court finds out that the absence of specifications in the imprint of a web page, as for example specifications to the trade register or to the sales tax number, are reasons to warn the website operator. Such reprimandable competitive offence is no bagatelle since; thereby, the consumer misses indications which he needs in case of possible appearing problems.
