Summary

The registered proprietor did not defend the action but the presumption of validity in Section 72 nevertheless required the applicants to establish their case.

From the evidence arising from enquiries it appeared that the registered proprietor, at the time of the application for registration and subsequently was not a registered company neither did any unincorporated body trade under that name. At the date of application the applicant appeared not to have been a legal entity.
