This is a 2007 panel discussion at Fordham Law School on the law of geographical indications (GIs). The panelists – many of them skeptical of strong EU-style GI laws – were brought together by Professor Hugh Hansen of Fordham. The discussion may be of interest for historical reasons, as it occurred before significant developments like the GI provisions of the Canada-EU Trade Agreement and the 2015 Geneva Act revising the Lisbon Agreement (1958). Panelist Lynne Beresford passed away in June 2016 and the remaining panelists post this discussion in her memory.
