German Federal Court of Justice ruling on the DWD WarnWetter-App

In its ruling of 12 March 2020, the German Federal Court of Justice decided that the Deutscher Wetterdienst (Germanys National Meteorological Service) may offer its WarnWetter-App free of charge and without advertising only for weather warnings (file number: I ZR 126/18). We would like to briefly highlight some of the effects that this ruling may have on the weather market, both from the user’s and the provider’s point of view.
