Author(s): Getachew Mengistie | Publication year: 2011
This study was commissioned by WIPO to examine the Ethiopian Fine Coffee Designations Trade Marking & Licensing Initiative. It highlights the experience gained and identifies the lessons that may be learned by Ethiopia and countries at similar stages of development. The study contributes to overcoming the prevailing erroneous perception in low-income developing countries and least developed countries that intellectual property is a matter for the developed world only, contributes to reorienting their development policies.
