"Geographical indications" (GIs) are a controversial kind of intellectual property recognized under the TRIPS Agreement. The international debate over GI protection frequently focuses on a few hot-button words - words like Champagne, Parmesan, Parma ham, Chablis, and Budweiser - all of which are claimed exclusively by European countries. Professor Hughes' talk will discuss such terms, and explore broader issues of strong GI protection, including questions over consumer welfare, genericness, agricultural policies in relation to globalization, and the monopoly rents that come from control of place names with powerful evocative uses.


Professor Justin Hughes teaches intellectual property, Internet law, and international trade courses at Cardozo Law School. From 1997 to 2001, Hughes worked as an attorney-advisor in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, focusing on the Administration's initiatives in Internet-related intellectual property issues, intellectual property law in developing economies, and copyright appellate filings for the United States (including the Napster litigation).
