Geographical Indications for Food Products presents a detailed update of the international, regional, and national law of geographical indications (GIs) for food products.
Since the first edition of this indispensable volume nearly a decade ago, great changes have taken place in both national and international legal and regulatory frameworks for GIs system for food products. Rather than use of limitation (designed to prevent the use of ‘culture’ for protectionist purposes), there is a preponderance to now favour recognition of GIs, with enforcement directed at protection.
While the World Trade Organization (WTO) and its Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property (TRIPS) remain the multilateral legal benchmarks for GIs, the field has been assertively entered by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) with the 2015 Geneva Act (which adds GIs to the EU Lisbon Agreement).
This book, still notable for its thorough exploration of the meaning of the TRIPS commitments, in its second edition, brings a new perspective that takes the changed conditions fully into account.
