Summary

The Hearing Officer referred to correspondence from the applicant for revocation and to the skeleton argument which had been provided by the registered proprietor and went on to confirm that he had amended the pleadings to ensure that the registered proprietors were in no doubt as to challenge which was presented by the applicant. In effect the applicant for revocation claimed non-use of the mark at issue and it was up to the registered proprietor to defend that charge.
