  • GIs protection
    • Part of the agenda of many countries
Gis protection

It is possible to take actions at national level to do so

peruvian experience
Peruvian experience
  • Peru has a sui generis system for the protection of Gis (Decision 486, Andean Community Regime on IPRs -2000)
    • Appellations of Origin
    • Indications of source
Why a sui generis system?
    • Potentiality of Gis development
      • Strong protection to ensure producers investment and promote its use
    • Facilitate the protection of Gis
      • Reduces the cost of enforcement actions for right holders
Appellations of Origin
    • Protected under IPRs provisions
    • Definition: Lisbon Agreement
      • Only names of geographical places
    • Scope: Any kind of products. No services
      • natural, agricultural, handicraft, or industrial products
Complementary legislation
    • Framework law for the Regulatory Council of Appellations of Origin
      • Management of the AoO by its beneficiaries
      • Mechanisms of quality supervision and control
      • Promotion
      • Role of the State: support to beneficiaries initiatives
Industrial Property Law (Legislative Decree 1075 - 2009)
    • Certification marks
    • Collective marks
      • In both cases, no descriptive of origin
Bilateral agreements
    • On the mutual recognition of GIs/AoO
    • As part of a FTA
      • Third parties previous rights
    • On the mutual support for the promotion and protection of Andean AoO
…besides that….
    • Internal work for the promotion of AoO along the country
    • Scarce of resources
      • Mixed efforts (among different public institutions)
      • Beneficiaries
      • International cooperation
Indications of source
    • Definition
      • An indication of origin shall be understood to be a name, expression, image, or sign that indicates or evokes a particular country, region, locality, or place
    • Unfair competition law
