Please describe in detail how the laws of the United Arab Emirates provide for the recognition and protection of geographical indications required by Article 22.2 of the TRIPS Agreement, citing to the relevant provisions of law or regulation, and provide examples of geographical indications so protected.
Geographical indications are protected through the 1992 Trade Marks Law No 37. All the provisions contained in this law apply to geographical indications. Paragraphs 6 and 9 of Article 3 exclude from the registration (protection) geographical indications, which have the purpose to mislead the public on the veritable origin of the product or services or which contain false indications as to the origin or source of the products or services.
