Or as a sarcastic to 6 months (where the seller has to prove the
defect was not there when the item was sold). After 6 months, the
buyer needs to prove that the defect has been already there when the
item was sold.

Actually, that's only the implied warranty (Gewährleistung in German),
while FIC is free to grant an express warranty (Garantie) of one year
if they like.
