Under the section on "Class Headings" (Page 6 of the Nice Classification), the class heading of Class 43 reads, "Services for providing food and drink; temporary accomodation".


Change

Rectification of spelling error.

As there appears to be no clear distinction between the two entries, we propose that "cream of tartar for cooking purposes" be removed from Class 30 to avoid repetitions. The proposal to retain "cream of tartar for culinary purposes" is to be consistent with two other entries in Class 30 that read "glucose for culinary purposes" and "gluten additives for culinary purposes".

B0792 Busts of china, terra-cotta or glass


Change


Busts of china, ceramic, earthenware or glass



To amend the Class 21 entry which appears to contradict the classification of "terra cotta" in Class 19.
The proposed amendment would align the affected entry with the following Class 21 entries:

  1. "Figurines [statuettes] of porcelain, ceramic, earthenware or glass";

  2. "Statues of porcelain, earthenware, ceramic or glass";

  3. "Statuettes of porcelain, ceramic, earthenware or glass".

W0355 Works of art, of porcelain, terra-cotta or glass

Change

Works of art, of porcelain, ceramic, earthenware or glass

To amend the Class 21 entry which appears to contradict the classification of "terra cotta" in Class 19.
The proposed amendment would align the affected entry with the following Class 21 entries:

  1. "Figurines [statuettes] of porcelain, ceramic, earthenware or glass";

  2. "Statues of porcelain, earthenware, ceramic or glass";

  3. "Statuettes of porcelain, ceramic, earthenware or glass".

Henna [hair dyes]
Henna [cosmetic dyes]


This proposal is submitted on behalf of the Association of South East Asian Nations
Working Group on Intellectual Property Cooperation (AWGIPC).
We note that the Madrid Goods & Services Manager lists "henna for cosmetic purposes" in Class 3, and suggest that "henna" (with qualifiers) be officially included in the next edition of the Nice Classification.
The descriptions, as proposed, are to better define the nature of the products.

Birds’ nest (medicinal purposes)



This proposal is submitted on behalf of the Association of South East Asian Nations
Working Group on Intellectual Property Cooperation (AWGIPC).

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bird's_nest_soup "The most heavily harvested nests are from the Edible-nest Swiftlet or White-nest Swiftlet (Aerodramus fuciphagus) and the Black-nest Swiftlet (Aerodramus maximus). The white nests and the red nests are supposedly rich in nutrients, which are traditionally believed to provide health benefits, such as aiding digestion, raising libido, improving the voice, alleviating asthma, improving focus, and an overall benefit to the immune system."

The explanatory notes of Class 5 state: "This Class includes, in particular, dietary supplements, intended to supplement a normal diet or to have health benefits". As birds' nests are consumed by some for health reasons, it is proposed that the description "Birds’ nest (medicinal purposes)" be added to Class 5.

Beverages containing birds’ nest


This proposal is submitted on behalf of the Association of South East Asian Nations
Working Group on Intellectual Property Cooperation (AWGIPC).
As the Nice Classification lists "edible birds' nests" in Class 29, some users may assume that "beverages containing birds’ nest" should also be classified in Class 29, as in the case of "chocolate" and "chocolate-based beverages" which are both classified in Class 30 of the Nice Classification.
The proposed entry is to reinforce the idea that apart from the following specific entries in the Nice Classification, all types of non-alcoholic beverages (of non-medicinal nature) are classified in Class 32:


  • "Milk beverages, milk predominating" (Class 29);

  • "Coffee-based beverages" (Class 30);

  • "Cocoa-based beverages" (Class 30);

  • "Chocolate-based beverages" (Class 30);

  • "Tea-based beverages"(Class 30) .

Ginseng roots for medicinal purposes

.


This proposal is submitted on behalf of the Association of South East Asian Nations
Working Group on Intellectual Property Cooperation (AWGIPC).
We note that the Madrid Goods & Services Manager lists "ginseng for medicinal use" in Class 5, and propose that "ginseng roots for medicinal purposes" be officially included in the next edition of the Nice Classification. It is suggested that the description "ginseng roots for medicinal purposes" be considered as it appears that it is the roots of the ginseng plant that have medicinal properties.
From http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/ginseng: "any of several plants of the genus Panax,  especially P. pseudoginseng,  of eastern Asia, or P. qinquefolius,  of North America, having an aromatic root used medicinally".
From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ginseng: "Both American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) and Asian ginseng (Panax ginseng) roots are taken orally as adaptogens, aphrodisiacs, nourishing stimulants and in the treatment of type II diabetes, as well as for sexual dysfunction in men".

Palm sugar

This proposal is submitted on behalf of the Association of South East Asian Nations
Working Group on Intellectual Property Cooperation (AWGIPC).
From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palm_sugar: "Palm sugar was originally made from the sugary sap of the Palmyra palm, the date palm or sugar date palm (Phoenix sylvestris). Now it is also made from the sap of the sago, arenga pinnata and coconut palms, and may be sold as "arenga sugar" or "coconut sugar".
