Protection of foreign trademarks
10.1
Under what circumstances may foreign trademarks not registered in the jurisdiction be enforced (eg, under unfair competition law)?
Thailand

Answer ... Trademark rights in Thailand arise only through registration and, for unregistered marks, in case of passing-off only.

Well-known marks as prescribed by ministerial notifications, or which are so similar thereto that the public might be confused as to the owner or origin of the relevant goods or services, may also qualify for some protection in Thailand, as long as they are well known in Thailand.
