Over the years, oriGIn has become the voice of groups at the national, regional and international level, advocating for a solid and transparent legal framework for GIs protection. When GIs are at issue – in bilateral agreements under negotiation, national laws to be adopted, trademark offices’ or courts’ rulings, Internet regulations under discussion, etc., oriGIn carries out campaigns in favor of GIs, raises awareness among policy-makers and informs its members and the public at large about the implications of the above-mentioned decisions.
Such campaigns, together with the relevant information on GIs we have developed over the years, are available in a dedicated page of our website Policy & Advocacy. This section has become an invaluable source of information on GIs and related issues, from trade negotiations, to Brexit, Internet domain names and sustainability, just to name a few. We invite you to consult this page regularly. This is poised to increase the transparency of the global GIs message as well as the coherence of our campaigns at the national, regional and international level.
