BERLIN (Reuters) – Germany’s federal court said on Thursday that the gold tone of the Lindt & Spruengli chocolate bunny has trademark protection, supporting the position of the claimants.

Lindt had brought the claim against another chocolate maker, which in 2018 also sold Easter bunnies that were wrapped in golden foil.

The “Lindt Gold Bunny” is by far the best-selling chocolate Easter bunny in Germany.
