Relation with Trademarks

trademarks3GIs and trademarks are 2 categories of Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) which deserve protection according to well established international rules.

oriGIn campaigns, and supports its members, to ensure that the national, regional and international rules concerning the relations between GIs and trademarks are correctly implemented, in particular with respect to the management of trademark applications conflicting with existing GIs by national and regional trademark offices.

To further help its members secure registration in foreign jurisdictions and/or fight against GI infringements, oriGIn established a list of law firms which distinguished themselves for their knowledge of GI laws and practice  as well as an oriGIn policy concerning its involvement in enforcement activities in support of its members.
