Tx to Mary for the table. I would be interested to hear more how people 
feel about the EU/US/WIPO definitions of Collective Mark, Certification 
Mark and Appellations of Origin feel about the listed definitions.

Also, at the bottom of the document, there are 3 sections that may be of 
special interest for our upcoming discussion: /differences between GIs 
and trademarks, differences between GIs and geographical names /and 
/differences between GIs and Appellations of Origin. / I'll certainly be 
reviewing this again before the call.

Best, Kathy
