According to Real, the German trademark office shouldn’t have granted the DFB’s initial application since the eagle logo too closely resembles the one found on Germany’sfederal coat of arms. consistent with German trademark law (§ 8 Abs. 2 Nr. 6Markengesetz), it’s prohibited to monopolize national symbols for gain . Real has already petitioned to the German trademark office to revoke the rights to the eagle logo, however, until a choice is reached and therefore the trademark is actually revoked, the court has got to believe the prevailing (valid) trademark registration and therefore the apparent determination by the trademark office that there’s no resemblance of the DFB eagle and Germany’s federal coat of arms symbol.
