OLG Frankfurt: Valid will requires serious intention to draft a will

OLG Frankfurt: Valid will requires serious intention to draft a will

OLG Frankfurt: Valid will requires serious intention to draft a will

http://www.grprainer.com/en/legal-advice/law-of-succession/last-will-and-testament.html
For documents to be recognized as a will, it needs to be possible to discern a serious intention to prepare a will. That was the verdict of the OLG Frankfurt (Higher Regional Court of Frankfurt) (Az.: 20 W 155/15).

GRP Rainer Lawyers and Tax Advisors in Cologne, Berlin, Bonn, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich, Stuttgart and London conclude: If it is not possible to discern an intention to draft a will (http://www.grprainer.com/en/legal-advice/law-of-succession/last-will-and-testament.html)then the documents in question cannot be considered a will, not even if they fulfil the formal requirements for a proper handwritten will. That was the decision of the Oberlandesgericht Frankfurt (Az.: 20 W 155/15).

In the instant case, the testatrix was a widow and there was no knowledge of any relatives of hers who might possibly have become her legal heirs. While she had not drafted a will, she had prepared a declaration with the heading “Generalvollmacht” (general power of attorney) in which she granted a friend of hers the authority to represent her in all matters. This power of attorney was supposed to retain its validity even after the death of the testatrix.

Following the testatrix”s death, the court appointed someone to administer the estate. This was met with an appeal from the deceased”s friend. She argued with reference to the Generalvollmacht that she ought to assume all of the rights and responsibilities associated with the estate. In doing so, she also wanted to assume responsibility for designating the heirs. She took the view that the power of attorney was a disposition by will in her favour.

However, the OLG dismissed her appeal as inadmissible. It held that the documents that had been handwritten by the testatrix did not constitute a will, even though they satisfied the formal requirements for a will. The Court stated that in order for them to be recognized as a will, it needed to be possible to infer an intention to prepare a will from the power of attorney, i.e. a serious intention on the part of the testator to draft a will and make legally binding arrangements with respect to the estate. Moreover, it had to be possible to discern the intention to prepare a will by way of interpretation. The OLG went on to say that since there were no indications of this from the wording of the power of attorney, e.g. no references to “final will/wishes” or “inherit”, or of an intention to appoint heirs, the documents could not be deemed to constitute a will.

Lawyers who are experienced in the field of succession law can provide assistance regarding all matters pertaining to estates, wills and contracts of inheritance.

Grounds for challenging a will

Grounds for challenging a will

Grounds for challenging a will

http://www.grprainer.com/en/legal-advice/law-of-succession/last-will-and-testament.html
Heirs who are disappointed with the content of a will may under certain circumstances be able to challenge the will if they have good cause to do so.

GRP Rainer Lawyers and Tax Advisors in Cologne, Berlin, Bonn, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich, Stuttgart and London conclude: A will (http://www.grprainer.com/en/legal-advice/law-of-succession/last-will-and-testament.html)can give rise to disputes among the heirs, particularly if legal heirs feel they have been overlooked or not adequately taken into consideration. If they have good cause to do so, they can challenge the will. Following a successful challenge, the will becomes invalid and the rules of intestate succession kick in.

Having said that, it is not always the case that the entire will becomes invalid automatically. Certain individual passages need not necessarily be affected by the will becoming null and void. Generally speaking, these are the instructions that the testator has issued wholly independently of the void declarations.

A will can only be challenged by those who are entitled to do so. This normally includes the legal heirs, the preliminary heirs or the revisionary heirs. The challenge needs to be declared vis-à-vis the probate court within a period of one year after becoming aware of the grounds for challenge. The will must be contested no later than 30 years after the inheritance has accrued.

One good cause for challenging a will is an error relating to its content, i.e. the testator has made a mistake regarding the content of the testamentary disposition or did not want to issue a disposition with this content in the first place, and it is probable that he would not in full knowledge of the facts have made such a declaration. Ultimately, the aim is to determine and implement what is believed to be the testator”s actual intentions. Other grounds for challenging a will may include a mistake pertaining to a declaration or a mistake in motive. In the case of the former, the testator might simply have made a mistake in writing, for example; in the case of the latter, he will have proceeded on the basis of incorrect assumptions. Of course, it is also possible to challenge a will in the event that the testator made the dispositions under duress.

Testators should make sure when preparing a will that the dispositions are clearly and unambiguously worded and that none of the relevant legal provisions are overlooked, e.g. those concerning claims to a compulsory portion. In this way, subsequent disputes among the heirs can be avoided. Lawyers who are versed in the field of succession law can advise on all matters pertaining to wills or contracts of inheritance.

Trends, markets and new developments for pipe processing

5 questions to transfluid: effective automatic systems for small series, networking and market requirements

Trends, markets and new developments for pipe processing
Interview with Stefanie Flaeper, managing director at transfluid. (Source: transfluid)

The events and trade fairs of the first half of 2016 had plenty to offer. Further developments and technical innovations for many different industries were topics in high demand for exciting discussions and pleasant transactions at Tube or Bauma, for example. Machine constructor transfluid (http://www.tube-processing-machines.com/homepage.html) continues to work at full speed in the second half of the year as well with fresh impulses from the exchange of ideas and continuous demand for its pipe processing solutions on board. With one look back and another ahead, Stefanie Flaeper, managing director of transfluid, makes clear what the industry and her own company currently need:

Ms Flaeper, where do you see the current trends of pipe processing?
There is a general trend towards higher flexibility. Subsequent costs – e.g. in the area of tool technology – must be limited to a minimum. It is important for the future to ensure complete process data recording. Only this permits production at employee-independent quality.

Are there any differences in the demand for technologies on the European, North-American and Asian markets? Where do you see special challenges?
There are technology differences in the requirements. For example, wage-intensive processes are not targeted at later automation quite as clearly on the North-American and Asian or Eastern European markets. Only among high-quality products such as in the automotive area, customers want to exclude the “human” factor of insecurity as far as possible in those regions as well. Generally, automatic plants are sometimes difficult to represent mathematically in light of the low wages.

How can digital networking in pipe processing be advanced?
We have covered the core competence of software programming with our own employees. Digitalisation then can be implemented easily with interfaces and a main computer. We create links with many different CAD programs as well. However, we also offer the option of digital data recording at the object on site – which is particularly interesting for special tasks. High-quality pipe processing as independent of employees as possible is enabled by this as well. Digital data recording and networking means, of course, that all relevant process data are saved centrally in networks, available to the complete pipe processing sequence.
Only this way can result-oriented improvement of the processes and quality be ensured in connection with smart machine solutions.

What are the future markets?
The entire area of energy supply surely offers future markets in technical respects. Of course, there are also advanced technologies in the automotive area, medical-technology devices and devices for rehabilitation. Water and foods are future-proof technologies as well.
Geographically speaking, the American continent surely is a future market. Its degree of automation is lagging far behind that of Europe. Eastern European countries and Russia will also be interesting for us in the future.

Which new developments do you put on the way for this?
In these areas, these are the automated plants that are effective for our customers even at smaller numbers. It must be possible to re-equip them economically and simply without requiring any mechanical equipment. All process parameters can be called digitally.
We have already implemented this in bending systems via robots. Here, process data can be read in online and the robot will program itself independently based on these data.

transfluid works on further corresponding new developments that the guests at the upcoming trade fairs such as the SMM in Hamburg, Bimu in Milan, Euroblech in Hamburg and, of course, the next Innovation Days at transfluid may look forward to.

Unfair advertising: Health claims concerning foods

Unfair advertising: Health claims concerning foods

Unfair advertising: Health claims concerning foods

http://www.grprainer.com/en/legal-advice/intellectual-property-law-and-trademark-law/competition-law.html Health claims pertaining to foods have to satisfy strict requirements if they are to avoid infringing competition law (http://www.grprainer.com/en/legal-advice/intellectual-property-law-and-trademark-law/competition-law.html). That was the verdict of the Landgericht Rostock (Regional Court of Rostock) in a recent ruling.

GRP Rainer Lawyers and Tax Advisors in Cologne, Berlin, Bonn, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich, Stuttgart and London conclude: Health claims regarding foods are forbidden if they do not satisfy the requirements laid down in the so-called “Health Claims Regulation” (Regulation (EC) No 1924/2006).

This was the case in a legal dispute that was tried before the Landgericht Rostock. A food manufacturer had promoted a granulate with statements, inter alia, that it supports the functioning of the bladder and prostate (“[s]tärkt die Blasen- und Prostatafunktion”), in addition to making other health claims. A competition association successfully sued for an injunction on the grounds that this represented an infringement of competition law.

The LG Rostock held that the information on the packaging did not comply with the relevant EU Regulation on nutrition and health claims made on foods, according to which it is necessary for information concerning foods or related advertising to include a notice referring to the importance of a varied and balanced diet as well as a healthy lifestyle. The Court ruled that the statement “[s]tärkt die Blasen- und Prostatafunktion” was a health claim that established a connection between the food and one”s health. The LG Rostock stated that no appropriate notices regarding the importance of a healthy lifestyle and balanced diet were featured either in the advertising or on the packaging for the granulate.

The Court went on to say that health claims can be used to promote foods, but in order to protect consumers these products must be safe and include appropriate labelling. Otherwise, this amounts to unfair advertising as in the present case. The LG Rostock therefore ruled that this advertising was anti-competitive and the action for an injunction was granted.

Advertising is subject to strict regulations, especially when it comes food. That is why manufacturers ought to exercise particular caution with respect to advertising so as not to violate competition law. Anti-competitive conduct may result in costly and time-consuming legal disputes or written warnings and injunction suits. For this reason, it is crucial to obtain competent legal advice. Lawyers who are versed in the field of competition law can advise companies and see to it that claims are enforced or fended off in the event that infringements of competition law occur.

Fail-proof system access and easy operation

How control room installations become much more reliable with KVM redundancy concepts

Fail-proof system access and easy operation
A KVM switch enables to easily switch users to a redundant system.

German manufacturers G&D feel very much at home in especially safety-related control rooms. For decades, their products have been proving their high quality in these environments. But the use of KVM does not only significantly improve the operating sequences. Sophisticated redundancy concepts make the entire installation absolutely fail-proof.

KVM technology plays an integral part with regard to safe and easy-to-operate system structures. The abbreviation KVM means keyboard, video and mouse and stands as a synonym for computer interfaces. The special feature about this technology: Based on hardware, KVM systems pick up computer signals at the interfaces from where they are extended and distributed. The advantage: Computers can be operated without any delays even over great distances and from different workplaces while, at the same time, users are able to operate multiple systems with only one set of keyboard, mouse and monitor. And all of the above works independently of any operating systems or additional software.

Facilitating operation for users

The first advantage lies in the optimized operation. KVM systems make it possible, for example, to keep an overview of multiple systems on multiple screens as is typical for applications in control rooms. The fact that individual systems do not require an individual set of keyboard and mouse comes as a big advantage and keeps the workplace clearly arranged. The desired computers can be manually selected by pressing a key or intuitively via G&D”s CrossDisplay-Switching: Here, the KVM system simply follows the mouse pointer. When moving the cursor across the edge of a screen, CrossDisplay-Switching switches the focus of keyboard and mouse to the computer source of the adjoining screen.

With such features, simplified operation already offers the first big plus with regard to safety: Users are able to quickly access their systems at all times.

Safety functions for monitoring systems

But when it comes to safety, systems from G&D have much more in store. First there are the KVM components per se. G&D does not make any compromises with regard to quality. Thus, all newly developed systems have to run through comprehensive tests, which ensure that any novelties can be operated reliably once they are launched. The parts of the on-going manufacturing must undergo an end test as well to maintain the consistent high standard. To make sure that the products are ready to be operated 24/7 over many years, the company has been certified according to DIN ISO 9001:2008 – a standard that cannot be taken for granted even for products made in Germany.

For mission-critical applications G&D have further expanded their portfolio to include even more safety features. Thus, their systems provide comprehensive monitoring functions. These functions do not only monitor the KVM system, but are also able to detect if the connected computers are powered on and if a video signal is available. In case the video signal fails, G&D systems always provide the image last displayed on the monitor. This way users are able to provisionally continue their work with static information instead of having to wait in front of a blank screen.

Redundancy concepts for absolute reliability

To ensure absolutely fail-proof systems, KVM installations offer the great possibility of establishing consistent redundancies. G&D have developed these concepts as part of a long cooperation with Air Traffic Controls, but also in applications in traffic management or emergency services.

The easiest concept can already be implemented by using a KVM switch: The switch lets you connect a primary and a redundant installation without the need of an additional software layer. Within a split second users can now switch to the redundant system simply by pressing a button. Expanded concepts even carry out such processes automatically.

But even with complex systems, G&D offer comprehensive options to establish redundancies. By now, KVM matrix installations are applied frequently in control rooms. Here, multiple computers and workstations are connected to a central switch. Thus, the system becomes more flexible since each workstation has access to each computer. This facilitates the cooperation between team members because it is possible to share screen contents, hand over processes to colleagues and implement large screen projections.

However, such a central switch might be considered a single point of failure. But it doesn”t have to be! G&D components make it easy to establish redundant clusters. This means that the computer signals can be distributed to two simultaneously working matrix systems. If one of the systems fails, the other one takes over. A recently implemented function called “Auto-Switching to Alive Cluster” automatically switches the user console to the backup installation in case the system fails.

Overall, G&D KVM systems offer many possibilities to not only make the operation for users in control rooms significantly easier. Furthermore, even complex installations can be designed in an absolutely fail-proof way. The team of G&D will gladly advise their customers on the best solution to reach their individual goals. In addition to other events, the company will present their equipment at the Critical Communications World in Amsterdam, 31/05 – 02/06/2016.

BGH: Comparative advertising featuring third-party trademark may be permissible

http://www.grprainer.com/en/legal-advice/intellectual-property-law-and-trademark-law/trademark-law.html
The use of a third-party trademark in comparative advertising does not automatically constitute an infringement of trademark law (http://www.grprainer.com/en/legal-advice/intellectual-property-law-and-trademark-law/trademark-law.html). That was the decision of the Bundesgerichtshof (BGH), Germany”s Federal Court of Justice (Az.: I ZR 167/13).

GRP Rainer Lawyers and Tax Advisors in Cologne, Berlin, Bonn, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich, Stuttgart and London conclude: Using a third-party trademark in an online sales offer as part of a comparative advertisement designed to draw the attention of customers who employ a search engine to one”s own product does not on its own represent unfair exploitation of said third party”s reputation. That was the verdict of the 1st Civil Panel of the Bundesgerichtshof in its ruling of April 2, 2015.

In the instant case, the defendant marketed vacuum cleaner bags online. In the description, it made use of the wording “similar to…” when comparing the bags to a well-known brand. The manufacturer of this well-known bag had the trademark registered as early as 1985 and considered the comparative advertisement to be a violation of its trademark rights. After the courts of lower instance reached different conclusions, the BGH ultimately dismissed the claim.

The Karlsruhe judges ruled that this form of comparative advertising is permissible. Moreover, there was nothing in the present case to suggest that the advertisement featuring the third-party trademark was unfair or dishonest. The Court stated that the well-known branded product in question had not been degraded and consumers were not misled regarding the actual origin of the product due to the word “similar”. It held that there was no risk of confusion and therefore no infringement of competition law had been committed. The fact that the third-party trademark was being used for the benefit of another party needed to be tolerated, as this was said to be in the interests of consumers who might otherwise be unable to find the offers online via search engines.

The Court went on to say that it is permissible to use comparative advertising as a means of informing consumers about the advantages and properties of a product or service if the advertising is not misleading. The BGH held that, provided there are no indications of unfairness or dishonesty, comparative advertising is permissible.

That being said, comparative advertising can nonetheless prove to be a fine balancing act. It is easy to commit violations of trademark law or competition law, sometimes even unwittingly. Lawyers who are competent in the field of competition law can provide advice.
