Geographical Indications Protection in Malaysia

Treasure The Origin Of Your Product

Nowadays, consumers are paying more attention to the geographical origin of products, and many do concern about particular unique characteristics in the products they purchase.
Geographical indication, therefore, functions as a product differentiator on the market by enabling consumers to distinguish between products with geographical origin-based characteristics and others without those characteristics. For example, "Champagne," a sparkling wine, came from the Champagne wine region of France and Darjeeling Tea of India.
In Malaysia, geographical indications are protected by the Geographical Indications Regulations 2001. This law aims to protect the intellectual property rights of owners of products with specific geographical origins and unique characteristics. By preserving the uniqueness of products through geographical indication, owners can enhance the export value of their products and gain monetary benefits from them.
The geographical indication is thus vital in developing collective brands for quality-bound-to-origin products. Hence, to protect the uniqueness of the products, geographical indication enhances their export value and allows the owners to gain monetary benefits from their products.
