The Trademark Blog carries the news that the WTO has criticised the EU for its handling of the dispute between Czech Budweiser and American Budweiser. It appears that the EU’s policy as regards the protection of geographical indications was felt to offer less favourable treatment to producers from outside the EU.

The IPKat suspects that one’s position in the Budweiser dispute is influenced by which side of the Atlantic one hails from.

Isn't it time the Americans stopped bleating about the bud? They stole a perfectly good European name and pass their gaseous urine off as if it's really beer. Now they say they're being treated unfairly by the Europeans. Ha ha, I say!
