You would have to investigate whether that company has any intellectual 
property rights in the name in Australia, ie a registered trade mark (easy 
to ascertain - check on the IP Australia Trade Marks Database) or 'common 
law' trade mark (very hard to ascertain without spending $$$) - remembering 
that worldwide 'fame' in a trade mark sense can be grounds for bringing a 
trade mark infringement action, even if the so-called 'infringer' is using 
the trade mark on different goods or services (see Section 120 of the Trade 
Marks Act).
