Abstract: The importance of Geographical Indication (GI) has increasingly grown over the past decades. GI represents collective goodwill of a geographical region, which has built up painstakingly over centuries. However, uneven level of protection under the divergent legal systems of various countries and the double standard protection adopted by the Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) are posing uncertainties in the international legal regime for the protection of GIs. This article covers the rationale and history of legal recognition of GI and also traces legal justification to recognize GI as an intellectual property. The article also critically examines the existing legal regime on GI (both international and national) and scrutinizes the additional protection clause U/ Article 23 of TRIPS.
