Abstract: This article aims to evaluate the potential use of collective marks and geographical indications as forms of protection for ownership and differentiation of handicraft production in Brazil, considered as intangible heritage.

Geographical indications and collective marks are forms of intellectual property protection that are associated with reputation protection and market distinctiveness. Apparently, they could be effectively used to protect and appropriate benefits of economic exploitation in the case of craftsmanship as in Brazilian artisan products
