Did nobody tell Philipp Maderthaner that Switzerland is not part of the European Union?

Yesterday a registered letter from the District Court of Zürich made my day. I had to laugh out loudly.

The letter informed us that Philipp Maderthaner had tried „by means of a precautionary measure“ to prohibit us the use of the term Campaigning Summit in Campaigning Summit Switzerland and even demanded to shut down our website. As justification, he claims to own a registered trademark «Campaigning Summit». However, dear Philipp, if you read this, that trademark is valid only in the European Union… And we invested thousands of hours and Swiss Francs, of our own money, in building it up here in Switzerland…

Of course the court rejected his request! Did nobody tell Philipp Maderthaner that Switzerland is not part of the European Union? (And will never be…)
