Anne Glazer Helps Launch New International Trademark Guide for Geographical Indications

Press Release

Portland, OR — The International Trademark Association (INTA) recently launched a new searchable trademark guide titled Geographical Indications, Certification Marks, and Collective Marks: An International Guide. Stoel Rives attorney Anne Glazer served as one of four Principal Editors of the guide, which was originally conceived by Latha Nair, of K & S Partners, Gurgaon, India, in 2006.

The goal of the guide is to present in a structured format the various options available for the protection of geographical indications (GI) as well as for two less commonly used trademark concepts: certification marks and collective marks. The modes of protection for the three are not uniform or consistent, unlike those for trademark protection, which, barring the differences in civil and common law jurisdictions, are streamlined globally. The guide has started with eighteen jurisdictions with plans underway to include more.

The guide is available to INTA members at no extra charge at the association’s website. A sample profile is available here.
