A: I would recommend a professional meeting to discuss the different aspects of the potentially conflicting marks, use, and likelihood of confusion and class of goods registration for both marks. A trademark is an important asset to the organization and deserves dedication, and resources to ensure it remains protected. Contact the specialized attorney you used to register the mark to review your particulars with a qualified professional.

A: as Neville indicated the test is likelihood of confusion based on similarity of names, words and classification of goods and services
