International Trademark Classification : A Guide to the Nice Agreement
This book explains the forty-five Classes of goods and services that were adopted under the Nice Agreement, a worldwide classification system for trademark registration that is adhered to by more than seventy countries. It sets forth the Official Text of Class Headings and the Explanatory Notes of which goods and services are included or excluded from each Class. This is followed by the Authors examination of each item within the Class, including those items for which there are no official explanations. The Third Edition incorporates the changes brought about by the 9th Edition of the Nice Agreement Classification, which is effective as of 1 January 2007. The specific changes from the 8th edition are separately explained, so that the reader can quickly grasp what those changes are.

..for anyone who enjoys reading books of lists, this book is un-put-downable. The hard work has all been done by Jessie, who has the grand title of Administrator of Trademark Identification, Classification and Practice, Office of the Assistant Commissioner for Trademarks, United States Patent and Trademark Office.. Jeremy Phillips, www.ipkat.com The IPKat...paid particular attention to the bits towards the rear of this book - and he has to say he found them pretty helpful: the text is clear and focuses well upon the many grey areas in which one might regard a product or service as falling within one of two or more classes. The only criticism he has is that the index contains no entry under "cat" at all.. Jeremy Phillips, www.ipkat.com
