UK Trade Mark Applications - Evidence of Use

The purpose of this downloadable questionnaire is to obtain some information regarding your use of your trade mark in the UK. We will then use this information to compile a declaration for your signature.

The aim is that this evidence of your use will help to demonstrate your reputation in the mark in the UK. This is usually to show that the mark is now distinctive, but it may also be able to support your case in an opposition.

The questions should be answered as fully as possible and, should there be any other prevailing factors which influenced the extent to which you have used the mark or which help to establish your proprietorship thereof, please give us full information thereon.

Please note that the UK Registrar is interested in details of use of the mark in the UK only.
