What if my trade mark is not registered?

If you have become associated with a particular identity through trade, you have what is known as common law trade mark rights. To protect this trade mark, you can sue the infringer for passing off. Passing off is when the infringer has led the public to believe that his goods/services are the same as or associated with the goods/services of the trade mark owner.
