TRADEMARK & PATENT IN MALAYSIA
Trademark & Patent
Trademarks and patents are essential forms of intellectual property protection. A trademark is a distinctive symbol, name, or logo that distinguishes goods or services from others in the market, while a patent grants exclusive rights to inventors for their new inventions or innovations.
These legal protections prevent other competitors from using or copying the trademarked or patented creations without permission. Obtaining a trademark or patent involves a formal application process and provides businesses and inventors with valuable legal protection against infringement, ensuring your intellectual property is safeguarded.

1. What is trademark and patent?
A patent protects new ideas, processes, or scientific discoveries, whereas a trademark protects brands, logos, and slogans, and copyright protects original works of literature.
2. Can I have a patent and a trademark?
Patent and trademark laws do not generally intersect. However, in the case of a product design—say, jewellery or a distinctively shaped musical instrument—it may be conceivable to get a patent on a design feature of the device while also using trademark law to protect the design as a product identifier.
3. Do I need a patent and a trademark?
You must file for a trademark if you want to protect a distinctive mark that identifies your company’s items. Apply for a patent to protect a product or its decorative design.
4. Does a logo need a patent?
While learning how to patent an idea is possible, logos cannot be patented since the term patent refers to ownership that protects innovations. Logos, on the other hand, can be similarly protected by a trademark or service mark.
5. Is a patent a legal requirement?
An inventor is not necessary to seek a patent in order to implement an invention, but once the innovation is made public, there is no protection against others exploiting the invention and you will be unable to secure a patent.
