Encapsulating the most recent changes in the law, this second edition of The Protection of Geographical Indications investigates the European laws which regulate the way that geographical indications can be used in the marketing of agricultural products, food, wines and spirits.
Key updates to this comprehensive second edition include:
• A new chapter considering the protection of EU geographical indications outside Europe, through bilateral trade agreements, and of foreign geographical indications within the EU
• New content exploring the impact of Brexit on the protection of UK geographical indications
• Discussion of Regulation (EU) No.1308/2013, supplemented by Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/33 of 17 October 2018 and Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/34 of 17 October 2018
• Examination of a new Regulation repealing Regulation (EC) No 110/2008, adopted on 13 March 2019 by the European Parliament
Analytical yet accessible, this second edition will be a key resource for all IP practitioners advising or working within the food and agriculture industries in the EU, and for all those whose work involves geographical indications and designations of origin. Policymakers in the UK will also find a great deal of value in the discussion of Brexit and its implications in relation to IP.
