Q14. Is there any way to check whether there are any trademarks that are similar to the one we are planning to apply for and which have already been registered or are pending?

A: We can check with the following methods.

(1) Method of submitting Form TM4 to the Registrar with a prescribed commission fee of 360 RM and a copy of the trademark indication

(2) A method in which the applicant or his / her representative conducts a manual inspection at the Kuala Lumpur Trademark Office

(3) Method using Online Search & Filing System of Intellectual Property Corporation of Malaysia (MyIPO) (http://www.myipo.gov.my/en/home/)
