I just read in the paper yesterday morning...that the EU is trying to push for basically copyrighting certain names. For example, unless it comes
from a certain region in France...it cannot be called Champagne. Likewise, if Feta cheese isn't made in Greece, it can't be called Feta, etc. If
this actually goes through, it would cost millions, maybe even billions, to American companies in repackaging, revised marketing, etc. I don't have
a link yet, as I saw it in the paper, but any thoughts? I guess we can't call them French fries then, if they weren't made in France? Oh wait,
that's right, we don't call them that anymore anyways, hehe....
Seriously, perhaps the European vs. American Cabals are actually getting ready to come to a head??? Especially considering the pending decision of
OPEC on the Dollar vs. the Euro.... I've got a bad feeling about this... Also, as a sidenote, I believe there was at least one other European
country the other day, that stated it may go the Euro....
