Trademark: Expert Survey Evidence
Constructing Persuasive and Admissible Trademark Surveys
Friday, April 8
In trademark cases and false advertising disputes, consumer perception surveys often play a critical evidentiary role. Too often, the Federal courts and other tribunals that adjudicate and decide these disputes find that the proffered consumer perception studies are entitled to "little weight" or are excluded from evidence all together. Consumer survey experts will share their insights to assist trial counsel in maximizing the effectiveness of consumer perception evidence at trial, understanding the elements of a well-designed survey, and determining and developing an admissible survey.
