The adoption of TRIPS in 1994 did not resolve the disagreements on the issue, and countries world-wide continue to quarrel as to the nature and scope of protection of GIs internationally and nationally.

This book, edited by renowned intellectual property scholars, fills this void and offers a variety of contributions focusing on the framework and effects of GI protection in the Asia-Pacific region.
