Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor

Few years ago, Malaysia sent Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor to space. Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor instantly became a hit with ladies due to his good looks.

He became an instant star, appearing in


tv commercials

And now.

as a trade mark!

Al Masrie Enterprise, presumably a business owned by by Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor’s brother, has applied to register Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor’s face as a trade mark for clothing.

I got this from a Trade Mark Government Gazette which I peruse every month. The government gazette is for the relevant people, usually trade mark agents, to see what marks are being to see what trade marks are being registered in Malaysia.

  1. Can I trademark my face too? Hee hee.

    But this guy is damn handsome man. Even my guy friends who’ve met him in real life think that whoa, this dude is just too good looking.

  2. KY: this can be called as celebrity trade mark. Its quite common overseas though. Examples are Robbie Williams, Jamie Oliver and even David Beckham.
    A lot of celebrities rely on their names to endorse products so its important to have their name or faces registered. I think for you, you can register kyspeaks liao. Next time no restaurant can say ‘endorsed by kyspeaks’ without your permission! Hehe

    Melissa: yes u can trade mark your face for your product or services! Trade mark with face always reminds me of ‘mou far kor’.

    You’re the first non Malay I know who said Dr. Muz is damn handsome!

  3. Does this mean that when he is seen in public sessions, even as a representative of ministry, the family has to get paid or at least the family has to give written approval?
    Was the brother’s application approved?

  4. Mei Ling: nope, the registration means that the bro got exclusive rights to use the logo with the bro’s face in it in respect of clothing etc. The bro’s application should be registered by now 😀

  5. ahhh I understand now

    hee hee I see that it includes underwear too … just as well then that when he goes for the govt. talks he goes in those overalls… if not, it might be seen as advertising clothing and the brother might have something to see about his exclusive rights being infringed :p
