State aid: Scandlines opposes the funding of an undersea tunnel on that route.
Trademark law: Scandlines tries to protect “Vogelfluglinie” for its services.
Environmental law: Scandlines claims a tax reduction for its CO2-friendly hybrid ferries.
Consumer protection: Scandlines seeks to avoid liability for a passenger who became seasick.
