Cologne's regional court decides Tuesday on a complaint brought by Germany's Haribo GmbH against Switzerland's Lindt & Spruengli AG over alleged trademark violations. Haribo, which invented the ubiquitous gummy bear almost a century ago, claims that Lindt's chocolate bear wrapped in gold foil called "Goldteddy" violates the Bonn-based company's "Goldbaer" trademark.
