Lisbon System Webinars

As from February 16, 2021, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) will release its first series of webinars on the Lisbon System for the international registration and protection of appellations of origin and geographical indications.

The webinars will explain the procedure to file an application for registration with the Lisbon System and how to manage efficiently the international registration of appellation of origin and geographical indication; they will also explore the socio-economic advantages of their international protection and commercialization.

WIPO will organize these webinars in English, French and Spanish and they will be webcast live, giving participants the possibility to interact with experts of the Lisbon System and receive answers to queries. They will be also recorded and made available on the WIPO Website. For more information:
