KPWT looses Court Case against IKA

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

The Kiteboard Pro World Tour (KPWT, official name: Globe Pro Firm LLC), a limited liability company based in Delaware, USA with its management in Brasil, served a court injunction on the International Kiteboarding Association ( IKA), a not for profit International Association based with headquarters in Germany, on the 15th of January, 2010.

The court order was to prevent the IKA from making statements about the validity of KPWT events.

These statements include that “KPWT(...) is not entitled to use the terms ‘world cup’, ‘world championship’ etc” and “Competitors taking part in unsanctioned events of KPWT will fall under ISAF regulation 19 and will be excluded from participation in future official ISAF and IKA events”.

The hearing took place on the 1st of March, 2010 at the 12th Civil Division District Court of Darmstadt, Germany.

A decision was then published on the 30th of March, 2010.

The court declared, that these statements in the context in which the statements have been made, are true and do not constitute anticompetitive conduct.

The KPWT having lost the court case will have to cover the full costs of the lawsuit for both parties.
