World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)

From 2008 to 2015, oriGIn successfully campaigned for the revision of the WIPO Lisbon Agreement on the Protection of Appellations of Origin and their International Registration, in particular for its modernization and the strengthening of protection for Geographical Indications and Appellations of Origin. Following its entry into force on 26 February 2020, oriGIn encourages all WIPO Member States to ratify the Geneva Act of the Lisbon Agreement on Appellations of Origin and Geographical Indications (as adopted on May 20, 2015).

Likewise, oriGIn follows regularly the WIPO Standing Committee on the Law of Trademarks, Industrial Designs and Geographical Indications (SCT), and campaigns for the full protection of GIs in the context of the Internet domain names environment. On this topic, see also the session Internet Domain Names Environment
