Two-thirds of court proceedings were due to cases of plagiarism and domain grabbing, i.e. disputes with criminal intent, where Jack Wolfskin products were sold and end customers were deceived with false promises. The remaining third is represented by disputes with companies. The reasons for these differences of opinion may be varied, and we do not generally assume any hostile intentions. For us, they are usually not to be tolerated because of the associated commercial interest involved and/or risk of diluting our own brand essence. No matter whether other parties are intentionally or unintentionally damaging the Jack Wolfskin brand as a result of their activities, it is the duty of the company holding trademark rights to defend these rights. This is necessary in order to maintain the distinctiveness of the brand over the long term. For this reason, we cannot preclude the possibility of legal proceedings with other companies or criminal third parties in the future.
