Part 1 outlines the rules of international treaties, in particular the TRIPS agreement (aspects of intellectual property rights that affect trade). It also examines the role of EU bilateral agreements. The EU negotiates the protection of geographical data under two separate agreements: specific “autonomous” agreements and wider trade agreements. The EU is one of the main proponents of the negotiations on geographical indications in the Doha Development Agenda of the WTO. While there has long been a system using geographical indications to protect many types of food, there is currently no system for protecting the geographical indications of non-agricultural products in the EU ENSEMBLE. Geographical indications are place names (including, in some countries, place-related words) used to identify origin and quality, reputation or other product characteristics (. B for example champagne, tequila or roquefort). The 1994 WTO Agreement on Intellectual Property contains a section on geographical indications. It improves its protection and extends it to more countries than previous international agreements.
