Commercial Use of Domain Names

HF - Washington.   On January 26, 2006, Sebastian Meis explored the issue of commercial use of domain names in Germany in The Commercial Use of Domain Names Under German Law.

Discussing a recent German court decision of a district court, Landgericht Düsseldorf, dated June 1, 2005, docket number 2A O 9/05, he explains the circumstances that render the use of a domain name commercial. The classification of the use of domain names as commercial is of importance for the applicability of the German trademark and unfair competition law as well as the statute protecting names, §12 of the Civil Code, Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch.
