International Trademark Classification: A Guide to the Nice Agreement helps trademark and IP attorneys properly classify goods and services on trademark applications.It explains the forty-five Classes of goods and services adopted under the Nice Agreement, a worldwide classification system for trademark registration adhered to by more than seventy countries. Author Jessie N. Roberts sets forth the Official Text of Class Headings and the Explanatory Notes forwhich goods and services are included or excluded from each Class. This is followed by an examination of each item within the Class, including items for which there are no official explanations.
