Delighted to see Cumberland sausage got the nod recently.
As it happens we had had fake Cumberland sausage for tea last night.
It seems to have taken just less than 3 years, which is probably a speed record for the EU to do something. I wonder how much the process cost?
Once the Americans have taken all the words out of the language (‘gaga’, ‘app’ ‘face’ etc etc) and the EU has taken all the geography out, how will we communicate?
Rainy county style sausage?
on-line store that sells software applications and programs (TM)?
front of yer heed? fizzog?
I’m all for not misleading people and differentiation etc but this land grab is going too far. I remember one of the mountain bike companies trying this a few years back, the whole of the rest of the industry including all the press gave them such a slap they never tried it again. It took them years to recover their credibility.
Don’t get me started on software patents…
What is your most annoying (bleedin obvious perhaps) patent or tm or word grab?
