    Event Synopsis:
    Consumer surveys are increasingly being used in trademark infringement cases to establish evidence on the likelihood of genericism, confusion, dilution and secondary meaning.

Speakers will offer best practices for effectively executing surveys to achieve admissible result.

    Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
    - Advantages of Utilizing Surveys
    - Common Applications of Surveys in Litigation
    - Key Factors to Consider When Designing a Survey
    - Best Practices for Leveraging Surveys
