Patent protection

In favor of your industrial property rights we take effective measures to protect your patents optimally against copies and reproductions.

Comprehensive legal protection for exhibitors

The protection of your rights is crucial for us. For this reason, our Conditions of Participation contain an anti-plagiarism clause that is legally binding for all participants. In addition, there is a general ban on photography, which we pay particular attention to. Furthermore, Customs and the German Patent and Trademark Office have an information booth at bauma (Entrance West).

Quick court hearings in extreme cases

Should a case of plagiarism occur despite our best efforts and strict measures, we will secure you and your products with short-term court hearings: the District Court of Munich exclusively reserves these at the instigation of Messe München. In the worst case, you can thus obtain preliminary injunctions more quickly. In the application, the applicant must clearly state that it is a matter of urgency for bauma and state the duration of the trade fair.

A tip: Please also note our Information sheet on proprietary rights. It contains further details, assistance and useful links on the topic.

Information on compliance with musical copyright

We want to protect you from unpleasant surprises. For your trade fair presentation this means: non-registered music playback may result in GEMA claims for damages (Art. 97 Copyright Act).

We therefore expressly point out that the legal provisions of the German Society for Musical Performing and Mechanical Reproduction Rights (GEMA) also apply at bauma. Under the conditions of the Copyright Act, permission is required for musical reproductions of all kinds. It is best to contact GEMA directly to ensure that you are acting in accordance with the law:

Gesellschaft für musikalische Aufführungs- und mechanische Vervielfältigungsrechte (GEMA)
Generaldirektion Berlin
Postal address: GEMA, Postfach 30 12 40, 10722 Berlin

Information on the current requirements and tariffs can also be found on the GEMA website.
