Legal Issues Seminar-General IP (LIS-GIP) On “Can A Suit Of Passing Off Be Instituted In Respect Of Unregistered Geographical Indications?”

Featuring: Sannidhi Mahapatra

A ‘Legal Issues Seminar- General IP (LIS-GIP)’ was conducted by Sannidhi Mahapatra, Associate, on “Can a Suit of Passing Off Be Instituted in Respect of Unregistered Geographical Indications?”. The seminar explored the legal provisions that can be interpreted to determine whether whether a suit of passing off can be instituted with respect to unregistered geographical indications. The session delved into the divergent views taken by courts on the issue and explored relevant judicial decisions in this respect. The session concluded with an interesting discussion on scenarios in which trans-border reputation may enable the holder of an international but lesser-known GI to institute a suit of passing off against a domestic producer using a similar GI.
