  Trademark - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
If trademark owners do not hold registrations for their marks in such jurisdictions, the extent to which they will be able to enforce their rights through trademark infringement proceedings will therefore be limited.
The proper use of a trademark means using the mark as an adjective, not as a noun or a verb [1] [2] [3], though for certain trademarks, use as nouns and, less commonly, verbs is common.
Trademark law is designed to fulfill the public policy objective of consumer protection, by preventing the public from being misled as to the origin or quality of a product or service.

Though trademark law is generally focused on the need for consumer protection, in many jurisdictions the concept of dilution has developed to protect trademarks as a property right, securing the investment the trademark owner has made in establishing and promoting a strong mark.
Such trademarks would include instantly recognizeable brand names, such as Coca-Cola, or Sony, and unique terms that were invented (such as Exxon) rather than surnames (such as Ford) or ordinary words in language are also likely to get the strongest dilution protection.
Unlike patents and copyrights, which in theory are granted for one-off fixed terms, trademarks remain valid as long as the owner actively uses and defends them and maintains their registrations with their jurisdiction's trademark registry.

In addition, if at any time the trademark becomes the generic term for the good, the trademark hasn't been used, the registration was fraudulent, or the trademark owner is using the trademark to misrepresent the source of the goods or services with which the trademark is used, any person may petition to cancel the trademark.

LA's president Jon Oxer acknowledged there had initially been some suspicion about the legitimacy of the letters and pointed worried community members to his recent blog entry on the subject.
"The e-mail is part of the process that LMI (Linux Mark Institute) has been undertaking to secure the trademark to the word 'Linux'.", he wrote, pointing out the institute was acting on behalf of Linus Torvalds and was cooperating with LA to register the trademark locally.
In general the community appears support the need for a locally registered Linux trademark, with Oxer saying Malcolm had told the Linux Australia governing committee on Tuesday night most people had responded very positively to the initiative.
