do we have any south american pirates on the list who can provide better
background as to how the brazilian GI protection is developing?
i deduce from this blogpost that GI protection in at least brazil is
taking a very different turn from the one in europe (although i would be
happy to receive any refuting words on this assumption)?

I can imagine my kitchen.
Last week the Brazilian Intellectual Property Office (INPI
announced the granting of geographical indication (GI) to ‘Cachoeiro de
Itapemirim ‘ for marble. Producers of Itapemirim will now have a period
of 60 days- from the notification day, to pay the fee for the issuance
of the certificate and thus completing the formality of this process.
The recognition given to the municiplity of ‘Cachoeiro de Itapemirim’ is
justified as the site is nationally and internationally well known as a
center for mining and processing of marble. It is said that with the
introduction of new techniques of extraction and processing, the marble
produced in Cachoeiro de Itapemirim has “reached a level of quality and
beauty comparable to the best marble found in international market”.
I definitelly admire all the different kinds of products that Brazil is
given protection throught the GI system - don't you? I mean apart from
the usual cheese, wines, spirits and other foodstuff, we have seen a
range of unusual ones such as metal, gem, grass and even shoes. You have
to love it! This is truly devoted love, support, and defense of one's
