Nadia Guadagno reports on the ruling, in video and in text:
Haribo, the confectionery maker most well-known for its gummy bears, claimed that Lindt's gold chocolate bear infringed Haribo's word trade marks GOLDBÄR and GOLDBÄREN (meaning 'gold bear' and 'gold bears', respectively) and its 2D image trade mark of a bear.
Haribo's trade marks

Haribo sought a wide range of remedies including damages and the withdrawal and cessation of sales and destruction of all gold chocolate bears. What an unbearable thought!
