  • Koptekst
    A manager or a director of a company can only be considered a "trader" in case he intervenes in his own name, without mentioning the existence of the company he works for.
  • Feiten
    The defendant and its manager organised a party using a similar name as the parties previously organised by plaintiff.

    The plaintiff filed an injunction against the company and its manager, based on the procedure as laid down in the Belgian Law on commercial practices of 1991.

    The manager argued that he could not be considered a trader in the sense of article 1.6 of the Law on commercial practices, so that the injunction procedure could not be started against him.
