Practice notes

Surveys and related witness evidence are used in trade mark and passing off cases. While often dismissed or criticised by judges, surveys can have a valuable role to play in establishing evidence of consumer confusion between the claimant’s and defendant’s goods and services. This Practice Note covers legal and practical issues associated with the use of survey evidence including advice on when it is appropriate to use a survey and how to formulate a survey.
