Morning Talk: Protecting your Brand in Malaysia

An initiative co-funded by the European Union

CCIFM in collaboration with South-East Asia IPR SME Helpdesk organised a talk on brand and trade mark protection. Trade marks are a key factor in delivering brand recognition for businesses in the global economy. They help to build trust, reputation and goodwill for your company and thus can become an important asset with significant monetary value. Hence, in order to protect your brand, it is important that you file trademarks in all the countries that you do business in.

Mr. Muhammad Azrul Abdul Hamid, an expert of the South East Asia IPR SME Helpdesk, shared insights on the International Trade Mark Registration System (Madrid Protocol). He mentioned how the Madrid Protocol offers the possibility to file a single application in order to seek trade mark protection in the territories of up to 98 member countries. Besides that, he also disseminated useful information on the Malaysian Trademark Law for both local and foreign businesses.

Mr. Muhammad Azrul specialises in the Enforcement of IPR, IPR Dispute, Copyright, Trademarks and Public Policy and Government Relation and is a Partner at  Wong Jin Nee & Teo.
