MEDIA REVIEWS
`Michael Blakeney's book is an excellent guide to the dizzying complexity of protecting geography-based brands in the EU. Call them appellations, designations of origin, or GIs, any practitioner in this area of law will want Blakeney's book in his or her library.' -- Justin Hughes, Loyola Law School, US
`The Protection Of Geographical Indications offers a much-needed and comprehensive analysis of GIs and looks, in particular, at their legal treatment in the international context, under European laws, and in the United Kingdom. In this context, the author offers a detailed discussion of the history of GI protection along with a comprehensive breakdown of the current issues and possible future developments, including with respect to the enforcement of GI protection. This detailed analysis makes this book a complete and well-rounded resource for the study of GIs in a contemporary and comparative context, and offers important insights into this complex topic both for specialists and novices. The book also masterfully blends theoretical analysis and practical considerations on the topic. The author has to be commended for conceiving this well-designed and thorough book on a topic whose importance is destined to continue to grow in future years.' -- Irene Calboli, Marquette University Law School and National University of Singapore
