20 Green Walks in Berlin®

Trademark Protection and Copyright


'20 Green Walks in Berlin®' wordmark in maps and other publications


On 16.10.2008, the Senate Department for Urban Development submitted an application for trademark protection for the wordmark "20 Green Walks in Berlin"® (20 grüne Hauptwege®) to the German Patent and Trademark Office (DPMA). With the expiry of the time-limit for lodging an objection on 16.6.2009, the wordmark is finally and absolutely registered under Register No. 30 2008 066 143 and hence legally protected retrospectively from the day that the application was submitted. The protection also relates to marks which could be mistaken for the protected workmark.

Only maps and other publications with the Senate Department for Urban Development logo provide the content and route descriptions of the 20 Green Walks in Berlin® which have been agreed with the responsible sections of the administration in the State of Berlin and State of Brandenburg.

In as far as maps or other publications present walking and hiking routes without the logo of the Senate Department for Urban Development or Senate Department for Urban Development and the Environment respectively as the 20 Green Walks in Berlin (or terms that sound similar), it cannot be guaranteed that the content or the descriptions of the routes correspond to the objectives of the State of Berlin or the State of Brandenburg.
