Geographical Indications Under Trips Agreement

2. The TRIPS Board is reviewing the application of the provisions of this section. The first review will take place within two years of the WTO agreement coming into force. Any issues that have an impact on compliance with the obligations arising from these provisions may be brought to the attention of the Council, which, at the request of a member, consults all members or members on these issues for which it has not been possible to reach a satisfactory solution through bilateral or plurilateral consultations between the members concerned. The Commission is taking the steps that can be agreed to facilitate implementation and promote the objectives of this section. 7. A member may anticipate that any application under this section regarding the use or registration of a trademark has been made public within five years of the publication of the adverse use of the protected reference in that member or the date the trademark is registered in that member, provided the mark has been published on that date. , if that date is before the date on which the adverse use was made public in that member, unless the geographical indication is used or recorded in bad faith. 4. The protection provided in paragraphs 1, 2 and 3 applies to a geographical indication which, although literally applicable to the area, region or place of origin of the goods, incorrectly indicates to the public that the goods originate from another area.

1. The holder of a protected commercial design has the right to prevent third parties who do not have the owner`s consent from manufacturing, selling or importing objects bearing or embodying a design that is a copy or, in essence, a copy of the protected design when such acts are carried out for commercial purposes. 1. For the purposes of this agreement, geographical indications are indications that include a credit of origin on the territory of a member, region or place located in the territory of a member state or place located in that area, where a particular characteristic, reputation or other characteristic of the goods is essentially due to their geographical origin. 2. The registration of a brand of wines containing or consisting of a geographical indication containing a geographical indication or consisting of a geographical indication or consisting of a geographical indication or consisting of it is automatically refused or cancelled when a member`s legislation authorizes it or, at the request of an interested party, with respect to those wines or spirits that do not have that origin. The measures taken to implement this section do not affect the admissibility or validity of a trademark or the right to use a trademark, since such a mark is identical or similar to a geographical indication. 1. Each member makes available to interested parties the legal means to prevent the use of a geographical indication that identifies wines for wines that do not originate from the location indicated in the geographical indication in question, or spirit drinks for spirits that are not native, or where the geographical indication in question is indicated, even if the true origin of the products is indicated or if the geographical indication is indicated in translation or with expressions such as the Employment Commission and the Commission of The Type, Style, Imitation or other.
