Abstract

This paper compares India’s position with that of the US on the question of protection of well-known marks in the light of applicable international legal prescriptions. The discussion in this paper compares protection for famous foreign marks (as opposed to a famous mark). Famous foreign marks are those that have acquired fame in one country and hence, well-known in another country.

Keywords: Well-Known Marks, TRIPs, Paris Convention, Trademarks, Fame and Reputation
