Trademark protection fulfills this requirement by giving protection to your product or brand, it gives exclusive right to the owner of Trademark for its use. If any person is found of taking undue benefit of the same or is found to be illegally using the brand in his name by commercially exploiting it then the owner of the Trademark could claim over its brand by filing an infringement suit in the competent court.

If it is similar to the already registered mark, then the court is the one which decides upon the use, strength and Popularity of the Trademark.
