The classification of Nice is the catalogue of names or organized system adopted by the majority of countries in the world, which defines, gathers and classifies products (types 1 to 34) and services (types 35 to 45) into 45 different types. The aim is to unify their registers, as well as the defense and opposition of a particular brand in the specific types of interest in which one intends to be distinctive (for example, food 29 and 30, drinks 32 and 33, etc.). It is a precise and effective system of registration and defense of a brand in the related category.
The WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization), international organization in charge of their application, has introduced a few minor modifications in some of them lately.
