Abstract: There has been a sea change in global marketing of geographically indicated products. This paper discusses the problem of protecting products of geographical origin; post TRIPS Agreement, which provides for enhanced protection to wines and spirits. Since no other product has been given enhanced legal protection in TRIPS, uncertainty for those unprotected products still continues. This has introduced inequity and unfair treatment of other products of equal importance sourced from the geographical locations and regions of the developing world. In order to evolve a fair trading system in the global market, agricultural and other natural products cannot be ignored as this affects the livelihood of a large number of people who are engaged in producing traditional and indigenous products of reputed quality. The paper further explores the possibilities of extending better protection to those unprotected products through the route of GI and probes the potential worth of Indian GI products with particular reference to newly found bonanza of bio-diesel extraction from Jatropha seeds as available in the state of Chattisgarh.
