The “Kontinuum” artwork was used in a catalog that accompanied the opening of the subway line. A pattern of sublimated diamonds on the white jerseys was said to resemble Klussman’s design work on subway stations along the city’s Wehrhan line.
The art professor originally demanded 50,000 Euros as compensation for the infringement; the club offered 15,000 Euros, claiming that the pattern used in the uniform design differed sufficiently to have avoided any copyright infringement. The parties have until late November to agree on a settlement amount before the courts would intervene.
