Ok. The test is - could this be confusing with their brand? Assuming they have been trading longer than you then they may have IP rights.If a consumer could get confused between your product and theirs then yes, its passing off.That is the test - could a customer be confused.So you need to consider this, I cant answer that for you.But they do sound very similar.Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex

You have given a negative rating - what else would you like to know?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Nothing. Thankyou
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
May I ask why you have given a negative rating then? If I could ask you reconsider this as anything other than a positive rating affects my standing on this site. Thanks. Alex
