Consequences of competition infringements

The consequence of an infringement is usually a cease-and-desist letter with the request to issue a cease-and-desist declaration, and is associated with significant costs. Often, cease-and-desist declarations are worded in a manner so that future infringements are already foreseeable upon signing, so that the contractual penalty will fall due automatically. In order to avoid such far-reaching disadvantages, legal advice should be sought prior to signing a cease-and-desist declaration.


Classical reasons for warning letters in competition law:

  • Written warning legal notice (Impressum)/ Act on Telemedia
  • Written warning cancellation/ instructions on right of cancellation/ instructions on right to return products
  • Written warning standard terms and conditions
  • Written warning prices
  • Written warning information obligations
  • Written warning under competition law due to advertising/ advertising slogans
