“Geographical indication (GI)”

Jurisdiction: Australia Australia

A geographical indication, or GI, identifies a good as originating in a specific territory, region or locality where a particular quality, reputation or other characteristic is essentially attributable to its geographical origin. There are two ways to register a GI in Australia: certification trade marks can be used to protect GIs for all goods, while GIs for wine can be protected on a standalone wine register.
