As the protection ensured through the above Acts applies to all kinds of marketing practices incompatible with good marketing practices, the protection extends to services.
[Answer 1: The protection for geographical indications is provided through provisions in the Danish Marketing Practices Act, No. 428 of 1 June 1994 (Markedsfringsloven) and the Danish Food etc. Act, No. 310 of 6 June 1973 (Levnedsmiddelloven). Such protection does not require registration. Legal means to prevent use of geographical indications is in Denmark further based on the EU Council and Commission Regulations (the most important ones being Regulations No. 822/87, No. 823/87, No. 2392/89, No. 3201/90 and No. 3378/94).]
[Answer 2: The Danish Marketing Practices Act provides the general protection of geographical indications (cf. Articles 1 and 2 - prohibition against unfair competition and misleading advertising). A single regime of geographical protection does not exist. However, the general clause in Article 23 of the Danish Food etc. Act stipulates that foodstuffs must not be sold under circumstances which can result in the consumer being misled concerning the marketing of food, wines and spirits (the origin of the product, the time of production, nature, sort, quantity, compositions, treatment, characteristics and effect). Further, it is possible to obtain a registration of a collective mark including a geographical indication (cf. Article 3 of the Collective Marks Act (Faellesmaerkeloven), but this registration does not provide protection of geographical indications used by a third person in accordance with good marketing practice. The latter regulation corresponds with the EEC Regulation No. 2081/92.]
