Geographical Indications registered marks in India, what cannot be registered

Geographical Indications registered marks in India, what cannot be registered

Productions that cannot be considered for GI registrations are :-

  • signs that do not qualify as geographical indications under the applicable law.
  • Conflict with a prior mark.
  • Generic character of the term that constitutes the GI.
  • The existence of a homonymous geographical indication , the use of which would be considered potentially misleading as to the product’s true origin.
    Homonymous geographical indications (GI) are those that are spelled or pronounced alike, but which identify products originating in different places, usually in different countries. In principle, these indications should coexist, but such coexistence may be subject to certain conditions. For example, it may be required that they be used only together with additional information as to the origin of the product in order to prevent consumers from being misled. A GI may be refused protection if, due to the existence of another homonymous indication, its use would be considered potentially misleading to consumers with regard to the product’s true origin.
  • The indication’s name being that of a plant variety or animal breed.
