Why not?  Coke, Pepsi, Ford and Disney certainly do their best to do 
exactly that.  That's what trademarks are all about.

About fifteen years ago, a dentist's professional society decided to 
have a convention.  As it was for all members from around the world, 
they decided to call it WorldCon.  They had to change it because that 
term is in use for the World Science Fiction Convention and trademarked 
and, of course, they hadn't asked permission first.  Would they have 
gotten it if they'd asked?  Well, knowing some of the people involved in 
running that, both directly and indirectly, probably not.
