Geographical Indications in TTIP Negotiations
MetadataShow full item record
The quality, reputation or other characteristics of many products may depend on where (geographically) they come from. When this is the case and it is positive, producers may consider emphasizing this fact by indicating the place of origin of the product, i.e. protect it by means of geographical indications. Protection methods differ in EU and USA and it was one of the most disputed parts of the TTIP talks.
