Abstract

Indications of geographical origin as distinguished signs are used for marking products and services originating from certain geographic locations. In recent years this field of intellectual property has been under the focus of our legislative bodies in the sense that the regulations in this field have been completely harmonized with corresponding EU laws. Therefore, the absence of the products and services with our geographic indications from international markets can no longer be justified by inadequate regulatory solutions. In this work the authors point to the significance of legal protection of indications of geographic origin describing the legal procedure for IGO protection according to national and international laws. In the conclusion, the authors present some critical reviews of the existing solutions in the Law on indications of geographic origin where the government is instituted as the organ of second instance in charge of deciding on the legal protection of geographical indications suggesting that a relevant independent Commission or an Appellate Council at the Intellectual Property Office should be instituted as an organ of second instance.
