New Indian GIs on the cards?

According to an Indian Government press release the Indian Minister of State for Commerce is in the process of identifying products for geographical indication protection to be registered with Geographical Indications (GI) Registry, Chennai. Amongst those being discussed are:

*61 types of spices
*Alphonso mangoes
*Monsooned Malabar coffee
*Nilgiris & Assam teas
*Basmati rice (though talks are ongoing with Pakistan)
*21 handicraft items

The IPKat says, delicious! (except for the handicraft items...)

Request from an IPKat reader

IPKat reader Adrian Jones asks:

I'm doing some research on the law in various European countries with regard to denigrating advertising. Would it be possible to ask the IPKAT readers if they know of any cases in their jurisdictions?
If you know of any, please drop the IPKat an email here.
