Govt opens group & association trademark for pashmina

Jun '10
Government opens listing of common trademark by business groups or associations, to help entrepreneurs operate under a common trademark, so as to safeguard and market niche goods such as pashmina, tea and coffee.

As of today, the Copyrights, Patent and Trademark Act permitted only the production units to list trademarks for their productions and was still on the common trademark registration for a group or business association.

This act affected the Nepal Pashmina Manufacturers Association (NPMA), which had established the global identity of Nepali pashmina by listing the trademark in key importing nations, and had also registered the same trademark with the Nepali government.

After continuous force by entrepreneurs, the Ministry of Industry, recently, corrected the situation and implemented the new directives on the Copyrights, Patent and Trademark Act.

Madhu Babu Adhikari, NPMA official, said that, the association is soon to get the Chyangra Pashmina, logo and trademark registered with the government, which will then certify that, the pashmina is originally a produce of Nepal.

Currently, the association has listed the trademark with three dozen nations including Japan, Australia, EU nations, South Korea, Singapore, USA and Hong Kong among others. It is most likely to procure trademark certificates from Thailand, New Zealand, Taiwan, Russia, Brazil, South Africa and UAE.

As per the registration, pashmina is a Nepali term given to the finest fur extract of mountain goats. Also, it's purely a Nepali good and it defines pashmina goods as products that possess the finest material content and traits.

By virtue of this registration, Nepali producers have achieved intellectual property rights over pashmina and have thereby, closed doors for competitor exporters from promoting their goods as Nepali pashmina in those nations.

Producers feel that, with the help of trademark, they will be able to recover the lost glory and market of pashmina, quite significantly. US, EU and Japan are the three biggest markets of Nepali pashmina.
