We are not entirely sure if the statement was triggered by all the comedy skits and jokes going around about Malaysia Airlines but yesterday, Malaysia Airlines Bhd (MAB) released a statement warning against the use of its registered logo and name. The company sated that it  would take action against the unlawful use of its registered trademark.

In the statement, MAB said its logo and name was a registered trademark belonging exclusively to the Malaysia Aviation Group (MAG).

“Any unauthorized trademark infringement on the registered logo and name will not be tolerated, and civil action will be instituted against those who unlawfully use the Malaysia Airlines logo and name for their own personal benefit.

“This is also applicable to all names and logos under the Malaysia MAG, which includes Firefly, MASwings and MABkargo,” the statement said.

MAB further warned that any firm who infringes on her registered logo and name would be sued and civil action would be made against such.
