Case 05 German License Rip-off

Autosolution GmbH, based in Germany, develops software for car repair shops. Alex Brem from the Swiss car repair shop Auto Brem GmbH has found out that the representative of Autosolution GmbH in Switzerland, Solix AG, offers the software of Autosolution GmbH in Switzerland about 30 % more expensive than in Germany. For this reason, Alex Brem contacts Renox GmbH, a software company in Germany that also licenses Autosolution GmbH software, but at the 30% lower price in Germany. Renox GmbH informs Alex Brem that it has clear instructions from Autosolution GmbH not to license to Swiss garages.
