EU Cheese Heads
"The European Union's highest court decreed feta cheese a traditional Greek product deserving protection throughout the 25-nation bloc.
Germany and Denmark, backed by France and Britain, had fought the designation of origin for the crumbly cheese for almost two decades, finally losing at the European Court of Justice.
Danish and German producers, who must start using a different name for their cheeses, argued that what made feta specific was the technique of making it, not its geographical origin."
Have you people finally lost your minds? Feta is a type of cheese! Check the U.S. Trademark Office records. Anyone wanting to register a trademark using the word "feta" must include the language "NO CLAIM IS MADE TO THE EXCLUSIVE RIGHT TO USE "FETA" APART FROM THE MARK AS SHOWN" meaning that the word is generic and merely descriptive of a type of cheese.
Do the British have a monopoly on the words "cheddar" or "stilton"? Do the French have a monopoly on "brie" ?
Please explain this.
