Details This study examines the legal issues concerning the protection of "geographical indications" by examining (1) issues intrinsic to the Geographical Indications Act (intrinsic issues), (2) legal issues at the intersection of the Trademark Act and other domestic systems (inter-institutional analysis), and (3) the relationship with international legal norms (including comparative law studies), with the aim of establishing a systematic understanding of the protection system for geographical indications. To realize the purpose of this research, this research will (1) develop the theory of geographical indication protection and examine the theory of requirements and procedures, (2) analyze inter-institutionalism with other national legal systems, and (3) conduct comparative law studies of international trends and national laws.
