 ERS/USDA Briefing Room - WTO: Beyond the Agreement on Agriculture
A GI is a type of intellectual property associated with goods that originate in a specific place and possess qualities, a reputation, or other characteristics that are due to that place of origin.
As in the bilateral agreements, not all of the protected descriptive terms refer to geographical origin; some are common generic terms such as "vintage." It is doubtful whether these regulations can be applied internationally, because generic terms such as "vintage" have no legal basis for protection under the WTO TRIPS Agreement.
According to WTO documents DS174 and DS290, the United States complained that the EU regulation did not allow the registration of non-EU geographical indications unless the geographical indication was from a country that offered GI protection that was equivalent to that of the EU.
