Chapter 9 (Page no: 122)

Geographical indications in the USA.

This chapter seeks to open a broader dialogue about origin products (OPs) in the USA, and to focus on the opportunities and barriers facing this type of production in the American context. The first part of the chapter presents an overview of the general situation of 'American Origin Products' (AOPs), that is, products with specific qualities or characteristics that are deeply rooted in a given geographical area in the USA. Moreover, observations are illustrated with some specific examples of producer group experiences. The second part provides a more detailed examination of the legal context for AOPs, which is both complex and internationally contentious. It focuses on the overall system, national and international, which forms the context for AOPs, and asks how it might be improved to better protect them.
