For over 4 years Novomatic AG has been trying to enforce legal claims against Euro Games Technology Ltd. (EGT), based in Sofia, and its German sales partner Е-Systems GmbH. On October 15, 2020 the Federal Court of Justice in Karlsruhe (I ZR 25/20) rejected Novomatic’s complaint against the non-admission of the appeal. Thus, the decision of the Berlin Court of Appeal of December 6, 2019 remains valid, which, following the decision of the Berlin District Court of May 9, 2017, has rejected all of Novomatic's claims: EGT has neither infringed Novomatic's trademark rights nor acted unfairly in the sense of competition law or violated trade and business secrets. All accusations of Novomatic have been found groundless. The decision of the Federal Court of Justice is the third and final instance.
EGT announces the decision of the Federal Court of Justice with satisfaction, since in its work EGT has always paid the greatest attention to compliance with all applicable laws, especially related to the protection of intellectual property. EGT diligently followed its own high standards in all its R&D, manufacturing, sales and technical support activities. The innovative products, the high quality service and the trustworthy relationships with all partners have been among the key factors that brought EGT to one of the leading positions in the global gaming industry. EGT will remain true to its core value to give more to the customers.
