Consumer surveys play an important evidentiary role in various aspects of trademark and false advertising litigation, as well as other types of cases. In trademark cases, surveys commonly are used to establish secondary meaning and likelihood of confusion. In Lanham Act advertising litigation, surveys most typically are used to prove implied falsity. And in consumer class action litigations, surveys more and more are used in opposition to motions for class certification. Finally, in various areas of the law, surveys are growing in use in the context of assessing damages or their absence.
