Aiming to encourage Taiwan’s agricultural and fishery export products originating from well-known areas to be registered as Japan’s Regional Collective Trademarks under Japanese Trademark Act, avoiding unauthorized use and bolster competitiveness in global market for domestic products, TIPO held an information session on Japan’s Regional Collective Trademark system in NTU’s Tsai Lecture Hall on December 21, 2016. A Japan expert introduced the system for around 100 attendees representing Council of Agriculture of Executive Yuan, county/city governments, township offices, Farmers Association and right-holders of geographical certification marks and geographical collective trademarks. The right-holders were greatly benefited as all the participants enthusiastically engaged in the intense discussion. The event successfully raised awareness of seeking trademark protection for exports in Japan.
