Organizers use the trademark "Oktoberfest" for unfair purposes
After a thorough legal examination, the City of Munich has decided to take action against the organizers of "Oktoberfest goes Dubai" by issuing a warning. The organizers are to avoid the incorrect impression that the Oktoberfest is moving to Dubai this year. However, by referring to the term "Oktoberfest," they are aiming to do just that. The esteem shown to the Munich original is thereby exploited in an unfair manner. This concerns the often clearly intended association with the original Munich Oktoberfest, for example on the website of the organizers, in their advertising materials or through the specially created logo.
