Abstract

Geographical indications are signs that indicate a product identified with a particular region, area, region or country in terms of its unique quality, reputation or other characteristics. Geographical indication registration does not protect the rights of a single manufacturer, but the rights of all those who produce and market in accordance with the conditions in the registration certificate. The purpose of geographical indication registration is to protect the products that have gained a certain reputation due to their production and source-based features, to produce them in accordance with their originals and to transfer them to future generations. For this reason, it is also culturally important.
