Are look-alikes confusing? The application of the DRM paradigm to test consumer confusion in counterfeit cases
Andrzej Falkowski , Justyna Olszewska , Joanna Ulatowska
AbstractThe Deese–Roediger–McDermott (DRM) paradigm was used to investigate consumer confusion between original and look-alike brands. The results showed that look-alike brands were falsely recognized at a higher rate than original brands and that modality (audio, visual, and audiovisual) had no effect on false recognition rates. The results suggest that the DRM paradigm provides a useful tool for analyzing consumer confusion, brand substitution, and trademark infringement.
