Geographical indications

Geographical indications are intellectual property rights, which protect indications that identify a good as originating in a territory, or a region or a locality in that territory, where a given quality, reputation or another characteristic of the good is essentially attributable to its geographical origin. This right enables the differentiation of the same goods on the market based on its individual characteristic, which depends on the geographical location. Conditions, such as climate, soil, customary procedures and similar give such goods special features (taste, colour, shape, etc), which are known in the market and are the main reason for the increased interest of buyers.
