Österreich loses lawsuit against Heute

vienna2009Free Austrian paper Heute will keep its exclusive right to distribute in the Vienna public transport system.

Competitor Österreich tried to have the exclusive right removed at the Austrian “Kartelgericht” but the court decided to grant Heute the right.

The Vienna administration is now thinking of allowing Österreich more positions in the Vienna streets.

Between the two competitors a long history of quarrels on boxes and racks has been going on, with Heute complaining, the city removing some racks and Österreich putting them back again and suing the competitor. (Der Standard)
