Louis Vuitton fails to provide the right evidence in court
I have frequently pointed out the paucity of the evidence that trademark proprietors often utilise when involved in proceedings, whether at the trademarks registry or in court. The importance of the mark in question appears to have little or no bearing on the degree of effort taken internally to provide the appropriate material. Very often external lawyers are brought in far too late to try and correct what has already been submitted and rejected by the lower tribunal as being sufficient.
