This was pretty clear until recently. Has the German Federal Court (BGH) now carried out a paradigm shift in the law of misleading advertisements regarding the prohibition of false eye-catching advertising messages and the unfair luring of consumers? Lawyer Rehart analyzes the recently published decision of German Federal Court (12.18.2014 - I ZR 129/13) and points to open issues and consequences of this decision in MMR 2015 588-591.
