ProjectForum4t2 wins lawsuit against Milk the Sun

Hamburg, June 11, 2013

The professional online marketplace for solar projects, turn-key systems and operational power plants achieved the first success in enforcing its rights against the portal Milk the Sun. The Amtsgericht Charlottenburg (Berlin, Germany), in its judgment (Case No. 224 C 442/12) confirmed the view that Milk the Sun has illegally violated the copyright of ProjectForum4t2. The judgment and the related payment of damages have not been appealed.

Contractual business concept plagiarized?
Active since March 2011, the online marketplace ProjectForum4t2 (www.project-forum.biz) is based on well-defined functions and processes, which are reflected in the extensive articles of the Terms and Conditions. A year after the launch, the management of ProjectForum4t2 had noticed that the Terms and Conditions of the at this time newly launched portal Milk the Sun were almost identical to those of ProjectForum4t2. As was true for those clauses individually designed for the online marketplace as well, legal action was taken to protect the copyrights.

Investigation and further legal steps
The platform Milk the Sun is operated by the company Milk the Sun GmbH, founded in 2012. Since the beginning of activities, the representatives of Milk the Sun repeatedly suggested to be the first to implement the idea of an online marketplace for photovoltaic projects in publications, press releases and competitions. Due to further legally questionable incidents during the emergence of the online marketplace Milk the Sun, ProjectForum4t2 investigates various actions under competition law and criminal law or rather has already initiated these.
