GRP Rainer Rechtsanwälte – Evaluating a trade mark“s distinctiveness

GRP Rainer Rechtsanwälte – Evaluating a trade mark“s distinctiveness

GRP Rainer Rechtsanwälte - Evaluating a trade mark"s distinctiveness

Before a mark can be registered as a trade mark, it needs to be assessed whether it possesses the necessary distinctiveness vis-à-vis other vendors“ products and services.

Trade marks give rise to a high degree of brand recognition among consumers and are of great value to businesses. It therefore makes sense to have a mark registered with the Deutsches Patent- und Markenamt (DPMA), the German Patent and Trade Mark Office. This will protect the mark from being used by other businesses. We at the commercial law firm GRP Rainer Rechtsanwälte note that should trade mark rights be infringed, it is possible to take legal action against this.

Before being registered, it should first be assessed whether the mark actually meets the conditions required for it be registered as a trade mark. To this end, a number of criteria needs to be fulfilled. For instance, the mark needs to possess the necessary distinctiveness vis-à-vis other vendors“ products and services. The mark cannot be registered as a trade mark if it lacks this distinctive character. Moreover, the mark cannot fulfil a merely descriptive function in relation to the goods or services. For this reason, the DPMA checks before a mark is registered whether registration is precluded by a so-called absolute ground for refusal.

However, it is worth noting that it is not assessed whether another mark with the same or at least a similar form has already been registered, which is why it ought to be looked into prior to commencing registration whether registration would infringe the rights of an existing trade mark. The proprietor of the older trade mark is then able to object to the registration, with this potentially giving rise to formal warnings, injunction suits or claims for damages.

That is why it should always first be assessed whether there is an absolute ground for refusal precluding the mark“s registration as a trade mark and whether existing trade mark rights would be infringed. If this is not the case, marks consisting of words, numbers, colours or images can be registered as trade marks provided that they fulfil the necessary requirements. The same applies to auditory/sound marks.

Lawyers who are experienced in the field of intellectual property law can serve as competent advisors when it comes to registering and protecting a trade mark as well as asserting claims in response to trade mark violations.

Marketing for Business Center

The importance of marketing is often underestimated

Proper marketing is a lengthy process of finding the customer’s needs, says Rieta de Soet, Managing Director of GMC Global Management Consultants AG, Zug.

For entrepreneurs, marketing is the opportunity to win and retain customers, continues Rieta de Soet.
She says, „Marketing is more than advertising, marketing is a business philosophy, a system that drives business.“

Marketing is divided into different forms:

Corporate vision:
Every entrepreneur must develop a corporate vision, says Rieta de Soet. The basic question should be: What will the ideal image of my company look like in the future? Visions appeal more to people’s hearts than to the mind, yet a vision is always an orientation and order function.

In-house sales:
Sales by the customer in person, sales by employees, sales on customer request.

Non-external selling agencies:
Business center agencies, brokers, franchisor.

Pricing policy:
It’s not the Business Center itself that determines the price of the service, says Rieta de Soet, but the market dictates what prices to enforce. Regular market observations are the decisive guideline for a good pricing policy.

As a business economist, Rieta de Soet is convinced that in times of tough cost calculation and relentless controlling a 100% cost overview is more important than ever. Customers use cost management in the Business Center and only pay for the services they actually use. For Rieta de Soet, it is clear that contracting with a Business Center is a serious economic alternative to traditional administrative structures.


GMC AG mit Hauptsitz in Zug/Schweiz, ist mit zahlreichen Business Centern international in Amerika, Australien, Asien und Europa vertreten. In seinen Business Centern stehen Betriebswirte, Steuerberater, Marketing- und Unternehmensberater den Kunden zur Verfügung, die seit über 20 Jahren in den Bereichen Business Center, Firmengründung und Managementberatung tätig sind.

Resurface ceramic brake discs? Yes, you can!

Benefits of repairing ceramic brake discs using the Rebrake process

Resurface ceramic brake discs? Yes, you can!

Reprocessing procedure for ceramic brakes.

Even extremely durable and tenacious carbon ceramic brakes will wear out at some point. Even if manufacturers state a lifetime of up to 300,000 kilometres, the brakes can give up much earlier. What to do? Original replacement brakes from Porsche, Audi, Ferrari etc can easily add up to more than 5,000 EUR. „We don“t just offer our customers the reliable repair of their ceramic brakes, no matter what diameter or how old – we can actually restore their original quality,“ states Wolfgang Dietz of FOXX – Automotive Components from Weßling near Munich.
The FOXX Automotive company has established a reliable, high-performance process in „Rebrake“, whereby ceramic brakes undergo carbon ceramic restoration to restore their original quality. This is achieved through each ceramic brake disc being put through a set reprocessing procedure. This consists of several different steps.

Reprocessing procedure for ceramic brake discs in seven steps

Firstly, the ceramic brake disc is separated from the brake cover, then weighed and X-rayed to rule out any hairline cracks. The disc is then thermally steamed to remove any surface residue and impurities.
In the third step, the ceramic brake disc is face milled, removing all striations. One of three fundamental steps now takes place, which are what make the FOXX Automotive Components process so unique: the roughened discs are treated with carbon polymers in a vacuum. Pyrolysis then takes place at 1,100 degrees Celsius.
Steps four and five are repeated three times so that the resurfaced ceramic brake disc reaches its target weight. Next, the disc undergoes siliconisation at 1,500 degrees Celsius. Final sanding takes place in the seventh and eighth work steps.

Enormous braking performance for high HP cars with restored ceramic brake discs

Treatment with carbon polymers, pyrolysis and siliconisation are what make the FOXX Automotive Components process so unique, and ensure that the carbon ceramic composite that makes up real ceramic brake discs is restored. This composite is especially resistant to heat and abrasion, explaining the enormous braking performance. High HP sports cars with performance levels similar to race cars need to speed up extremely fast but also slow down safely. To achieve this, ceramic brakes are the material of choice.

Rebrake is the specialists in refurbishing ceramic brakes. The company can used and worn ceramic brakes discs can be refurbished. REBRAKE gives refurbished brake discs the best properties.

Modern Gas-Catalytic Infrared Emitters Are Twice as Fast in Curing Corrosion Protective Coating on Welding Equipment

Modern Gas-Catalytic Infrared Emitters Are Twice as Fast in Curing Corrosion Protective Coating on Welding Equipment

Infrared-Systems from Heraeus Nobllight optimize Corrosion Protective Coating on Welding Equipment. (Source: Copyright Miller Electric 2018)

Mobile welding equipment is used in many different environments. Consequently, their casings are protected against corrosion by a base coating and then finished with a decorative top coating. However, the complete curing of both coatings involves considerable cost – and until now considerable time. A gas catalytic oven from Heraeus is now significantly helping to allow the anti-corrosion coating on the mild steel casings of the welders to be dried in half the previous time. This also saves operating costs. This innovative solution has been developed by Miller Electric Mfg LLC a leading manufacturer of arc welding equipment, with the coating supplier TCI Powder Coatings and Heraeus, the infrared specialist. The heart of the new system is a gas catalytic infrared oven, which removes the requirement for a full cure of the Zinc primer. The final top coat can be applied whilst the primer has reached the gel stage in the Gas Catalytic IR oven. The final top coat can then be applied, before coated parts pass through a convection oven for final cure. This process actually improves the bond between the primer and the top coat, yet shortens the total cure time, improves the quality and saves energy.

Kent Schaefer, production engineer at Miller Electric Mfg LLC, is very positive, „Heraeus and TCI Powder have achieved a breakthrough in both planning and implementation. This has provided us with a better decoration process, which also reduces operation costs.“
Heraeus Noblelight will present this and other innovative infrared solutions for drying coatings at the PaintExpo exhibition, which takes place in Karlsruhe from 17 to 20 April.

Optimisation thanks to good co-operation
Miller Electric Mfg LLC is always looking for continuous improvement in the development of its mobile welding machines and this includes optimization of its coating plant. Previously this was a two-stage thermal curing process which components passed through twice, first to apply and fully cure the primer, a process that is then repeated for the top-coat. The Miller Electric engineers sat down with IR specialists from Heraeus Noblelight and the powder supplier TCI Powder Coatings to examine the opportunities offered by gas catalytic infrared. These investigations revealed that a totally innovative solution could eliminate the separate curing process during base coating required by the existing system.

Intelligent Process Optimisation: A gas catalytic oven eliminates one curing process
The components which require coating with the zinc-rich base powder, using a conventional oven, undergo a two-stage process, where the powder is applied, melted, gelled and cured. In the new infrared oven the full cure of the zinc rich primer, is eliminated. Instead, the decorative coating is now applied when the Zinc primer s still in the gel state. The components, with the base coating at the gel stage and the newly applied top coat are then passed into a convection oven, where both the primer and the top coat are completely cured.
The gas catalytic infrared oven acts as a booster in the process. Infrared radiation gels the powder faster than hot air. In addition, rapid gelling reduces powder „blow-off“ and dust contamination.The use of the gas catalytic infrared oven not only reduces the overall cycle time by 50% but also improves the bond between the primer and top coat, thus improving overall corrosion resistance of the parts when in service.

Side channel blower – SKVTechnik from Germany ships within Europe within one week

SKVTechnik – the online retailer of side channel blowers and fans has been on market since 2012. SKVTechnik offers the complete range of side channel blowers and fans from various German and European brand manufacturers.

Side channel blower - SKVTechnik from Germany ships within Europe within one week

Blow-out variants of side channel blowers

From the smallest 0.2 kW device to the power side channel blower with 25 kW power and 300 kg machine weight. From 100 m³ / h volume capacity up to 2000 m³ / h. From 100 mbar pressure capacity up to 650 mbar in the high level machines.
SKVTechnik buys side channel blowers in large quantities at favorable conditions from the manufacturers and sells these stocks with good prices to the users. The prerequisite for the long-standing existence of SKVTechnik is reliability, brand loyalty and brand quality. The side chanel blowers have between two years and voluntarily granted 3 years warranty. To be honest it is to say that SKVTechnik can only do this in the background with strong manufacturer partners.
Which machine types are in the permanent offer? These are side channel blowers and fans. Here is a brief overview of the principles of action:
Side channel blowers draw in air from the environment or from a process and produce pulsation-free and oil-free compressed air. The side channel compressor runs largely without mechanical loss. Although only a hundredth of a millimeter gap is between the rotor and the stator, the rotor still runs without contact against the stator.
How it works?
Side channel blowers suck in gases and increase the pressure of the intake gas during the compression process. The pressure increase is generated by the air in the chambers between the rotor and stator is placed in a rotary motion. The centrifugal force of the rotary motion pushes the gas outward into the side channel. While the chambers push the compressed gas into the side channel, it is compressed several times. This is the cause of the permanent pressure increase over the length of the side channel. This creates an oil-free and pulsation-free air flow.
The working principle makes the side channel blower a perennial runner. The side channel blowers of SKVTechnik are designed for continuous operation. Side channel blowers often last for years with good care and occasional maintenance.
Fans have a different operating principle than the side channel blowers. Fans operate at much higher flow rates and much lower pressure than the side channel blowers. Fans often have larger gaps between rotor and stator and, depending on the design of the fan, also transport solids. Due to the volume-pressure characteristics mentioned above, fans are used for applications other than side channel blowers.
SKVTechnik offers both machine types and operating principles. If customers are interested in consulting, SKVTechnik specialists will be happy to evaluate customer plant situations and propose or offer suitable equipment for customers.
Short delivery times are required:
The delivery times are short. 80 percent of the side channel blowers are in stock at SKVTechnik. If side channel blowers are available on stock, then on a Monday order, the device will be on the customer’s Friday. Depending on the storage location, customers can also pick up the devices on site.
In this specific case, interested parties can contact the hotline of SKVTechnik +49 3741 2510951. Colleagues can prepare quotations, answer technical questions and name delivery times.
