The volume titled “ Geographical Indications….Its evolving Contours” by Dr Prabuddha Ganguli, a leading authority in IPR presents the nuances of Geographical Indication (GI) in a comprehensive and lucid manner in 9 chapters.

 

The book was released by Mr Kurien, the Controller General of Patents, Trademarks, Designs and Geographical Indications" Government of India on July 18th 2009.

 

The volume starts with the economic significance of GI and how it has been used in various countries to promote their traditional products leading to economic development. The concepts such as Certification Marks, Collective marks, Indications of Source, Appellations of Origin, Protected Designations of Origin, Protected Geographical Indications, Traditional Specialty Guaranteed,  Geographical Indications that are generally used in granting protection to products have been explained with examples.

 

An exclusive chapter deals with  various international agreements such as The Paris Convention, The Madrid Agreement, The Lisbon Agreement, Stresa Convention,  Bilateral, Plurilateral Agreements and Free Trade Agreements including the provisions under TRIPS, and the current debates that surround it .

 

The study further examines the system and practice of protection granted in respect of Geographical Indications in various countries, such as Thailand, Turkey, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, China, Chile, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil., Vietnam, Malaysia, Peru, United States of America, Australia and the European Union.

 

The system of GI is now well developed in India and the study presents the status of GI in India citing examples of GI that have been granted in India. Interesting case studies from various parts of the world that include Pochampally Ikat, Cuban Cigars, Feta Cheese, Parma Ham, Spanish Champagne, Scotch Whisky, Darjeeling Tea, and Melton Mowbray Pork Pie highlight the complexities, issues and disputes in the GI arena. The example of GI Application No.44, Kondapalli Bommalu in India drives home the point that extensive documentation is required for the registration of GI. The volume ends with a rich bibliography that not only presents the references by way of titles and their source, but the abstracts of each of the articles enriches the usefulness of the bibliography.  

 

The author needs to be complimented for making this volume freely accessible on the net on the website of Institute of Intellectual Property Studies (IIPS), Mumbai (www.iips.ac.in). The Liberty Institute further joins in the effort to host the volume in its website for the promotion of the concept and use of GI for socio-economic development.

Geographical Indicators: Its evolving contours (1MB)

 

Institute of Intellectual Property Studies: Intellectual property is an offspring of the 19th century industrial development and grew to adulthood in the technological boom of the 20th century. It became the buzzword of the 21st century information era, with the WTO in 1995 giving it great prominence through its TRIPS agreement, which obliged all member nations to become TRIPS compliant by 2005. Enabling legislations have been passed to make the Indian Patents Act and the entire IP scenario “TRIPS compliant”.buy cheap viagra where do i buy viagra online viagra stori
