One very important point of clarification that we would like to make is that a trademark registration does not give the owner the right to prohibit others from using the word in a generic sense. What the trademark registration does is that it gives the owner of the mark, rights to the mark in the specific class of goods or services in which it has been registered and only when used as a trademark.
So what is a trademark? A trademark is a sign which distinguishes the goods and services of one trader from those of another. A sign includes words, logos, pictures, names, letters, numbers or a combination of these. A trademark registration is valid for 10 years from the date of application and renewable every 10 years.
One common misconception is that once a trademark is obtained, it is applicable worldwide. It is actually untrue, there is no central worldwide administration. Companies are still required to file their trademark individually in different countries. An alternative is via Madrid Protocol whereby one application will cover more than one country. The only difficulty is that not all countries participate in the Madrid Protocol. So companies are still required to submit their application in that specific country that they wish to apply for, for example Malaysia. Malaysia is not a member of Madrid Protocol.

So have you registered your trademark? Or is your trademark registered in the countries that you operate in? If not, perhaps you should consider doing so now in order to protect your brand name. If you really think about it, the cost incurred is not much considering its for 10 years.
