The aim of the events is to familiarize SMEs with such an object of intellectual property as appellation of origin (AOI) and some aspects of the AOI registration procedure. AOI and GIs are means of promoting of local products, as well as in increasing the economic potential of a region and even of individual countries, developing the tourism industry, gastronomy tourism, which consequently has a beneficial effect on the economies of those countries as well.
In addition to the geographical origin or place of origin of a product, the legal protection system of an AOI seeks to protect the quality of the product, its unique characteristics and the factors involved in its production.
A new intellectual property object, Geographical Indication (GI), is currently being introduced into IP legislation. The draft law is under discussion in the Parliament.
