The title question is the central theme which runs throughout this thesis. However, in order to answer this question, one must answer two preliminary questions. Firstly, what constitutes the essential function of a trade mark and therefore at are the aspects of a mark that the law ought to protect? Secondly, what actions constitute use of a trade mark for the purposes of the infringement provisions? Therefore, Chapter One discusses the specific subject matter of a trade mark and provides a conclusion as to what elements the law should protect. Chapter Two uses Section 10(4) as a starting point to discuss the concept of use and in finding no fixed definition, provides its own.
