We have extensive experience on collective mark and regional collective mark registration. There are some registrations of collective and regional collective marks by non-Japanese organizations/associations including ones for which we were involved as applicants’ attorneys.

Geographic indications (MAFF)

In 2012, a new framework for protecting geographical indications for agricultural products under the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries ("MAFF") has begun under one of their study groups. Chikako Mori is a member of the study group.
