That also depends on the jurisdiction. Sweden, seems to be the case.

Un-registered trademarks has almost no protection in my country (not sweden) for

Based on US practice (IIRC) ™ for un-registred trademarks and ® for registred. I guess
the un-registred trademark must carry the ™ thing to be enforced, but I am not sure.

Just 2c.
