Background to the Notice
November 2006, I posted to this website a Notice regarding the successful
application by Helen Belôt to trademark the name SEKHEM within the European
Union. Helen Belôt is the Australian Energy Master who works with the Sekhem
energy. That Notice contained passing references to the trademarking of

outlined in the Notice for the European Union trademarking in case any might

The purpose of all the postings to this website regarding the trademarking of Sekhem around the world is to provide information and to give people affected by the trademarking some idea of the questions which they should be asking rather than try to give definitive position statements. Please note that I am not a qualified legal practitioner and people affected by the various trademarkings should seek the appropriate legal advice for their individual situations.

in case any might be relevant in
Trademark 200113728 is for a word based trademark which does not include any logo or other image design. The trademark is for the use of the three words HELEN BELOT SEKHEM together for Class 42 services and does not apply to any of these three words used separately. The trademarking approval is only for what is shown above.
Although healers in Hong Kong need to be mindful not to place themselves in the position whereby their use of the word Sekhem could reasonably be considered to be presenting themselves as providing the same service as the trademark owner or to be ‘passing themselves off’ in a manner similar to the trademark owner, it does need to be noted that the word Sekhem by itself does not appear to be trademarked unless there are other trademarking approvals in place which do not appear on the online database.
If any healer who believes that he or she has a legitimate right to work with the word Sekhem, any direction from a third party not to use the word or the image should be met with a request for the official trademark registration number that prevents the usage. Similarly, third parties should not give direction to people to cease using the word Sekhem unless they have checked back to the official trademark registration number on the basis of which they are giving direction. The reason for making this comment is that it seems to be a common practice around the world for third parties to say that the word Sekhem is trademarked when there might not be any trademark in place for the word used by itself.
