Market research expert witnesses are often knowledgeable with statistics, trademarks, valuation, franchise operations, patents, licensing, pricing strategies, copyright infringement, distribution, and intellectual property, as copyright and patent law-related court cases may benefit from information based on market research.
The surveying methods of market research may also be used to identify cases of consumer confusion, which is often the basis of lawsuits based on issues with copyright and patents.
