I read in an earlier post the following:

Is the USPTO providing false hope by issuing such Trademarks?

How many international registrations?

In International Trademarks    -  updated on 11/11/2009
We have a mark registered with the USPTO, and have submitted an application for the CTM (EU) registration. We will be offering our product internationally. In addition to the EU, I see China and India as both significant opportunities and risks of infringement and knock-offs.

What other international registrations should we consider? Would the additional cost and effort buy us any practical protection?

Does having US and EU registration have any influence in other jurisdictions?...
