In Myanmar, there is no specific trademark law so far. Although it is possible to register a declaration of the ownership of a trademark, this does not establish proprietary rights in the trademark. The rights associated with the trademark are established through its use.
To create public awareness of the ownership of the trademark and warn of potential infringement in case of trademark conflicts, it is strongly recommended to adhere to the country's established practice of publishing a Trademark Cautionary Notice in the local newspapers right after the completion of the trademark registration. This is done once every 3 years to remind the public of the ownership.
However, there is no official trademark searching facility in the country. The Registrar of Deeds does not accept application for trademark verification. All the registered data are kept confidential. Under such situation, any business person seeking legal status of his trademark registration will face potential trademark conflict.
