Does a federally registered trademark give me rights in foreign countries?

A federalliy registered trademark generally does not give the owner rights in foreign countries. Although a federally registered trademark may be used to prevent overseas competitors from importing infringing products, to gain the exclusive right to use a mark in other countries the mark must be registered in that country.
