Yes, the trademark holder information is public, and the trademark registries can be accessed by anyone who wishes to obtain more information about trademarks and their respective holders.

Every country has a dedicated IP office website that includes a trademark registry. Information about the owner of any trademarks can be retrieved using an application/registration number or the name of a brand/product. The trademark holder information includes the type of trademark holder (a physical person or a legal entity). Furthermore, the official address of the entity is accessible. Finally, information about who is the legal representative of a given trademark can be also found in any trademark registry.

If a person does not agree to provide their official address, they can use a PO Box instead. However, there is one exception, which is the US. The USPTO prohibits using a PO Box address instead of an official address of an individual applicant for a trademark.
