Intellectual Property Rights
Geographical indications registrations are granted to identify products which bear close association with products which are found/originated/ manufactured in a specific geographical area. Protection is granted to all undertaking and establishments located in that area which may use the ‘geographical indication’ on the exclusive goods that they product. It is rather important that prompt action be taken against any potential or real violation of a registered Geographical Indication. We have expertise in taking action against parties violating the registered Geographical Indications by filing Trademark application. We provide for investigation services, send notices, filing oppositions and rectifications and initiation of appropriate remedies (civil or criminal). We maintain continuous watches on the Geographical Indication Journal as well as the Trademark Journal to check for any potentially
conflicting applications to further warn the Geographical Indicator owners regarding the protection of their rights by taking action against infringers.
Based on the analysis of our experts, we provide legal advice against civil and criminal proceedings. Our Attorneys handle Geographical Indication filings, for agricultural products, industrial products, handcrafted goods, food and other consumable goods.
