Summary

The registered proprietors filed details of modest use during the relevant period, on shoes. The evidence filed was mainly in the form of invoices and other supporting paperwork and the applicants for revocation disputed that this was proper trade mark use.

The Hearing Officer reviewed the evidence before him and the arguments submitted and concluded that there had been proper trade mark use during the relevant period on at least shoes. The specification was therefore amended to exclude goods other than shoes.
