Doctrinal discipline in trademark cases is often sacrificed to expediency; everyone knows infringement when they see it. Unfortunately, this instinctual approach can lead to analytical shortcuts, making it hard to reconcile seemingly conflicting decisions and even more difficult to predict future outcomes. The Federal Court of Appeal's recent decision in Wenger S.A. et al. v. Travelway Group International Ltd. provides a great opportunity to consider the Court's approach to trademark use, confusion and validity.

Join our experts as they address key issues and principles: 

  • How does the Court assess confusion?
  • What are the similarities and differences between infringement, passing off and depreciation of goodwill?
  • How does the use of a trademark variant change the analysis?
  • When is it strategically advantageous to proceed by way of application?
