TOTALLY DESCRIPTIVE TERM GETS PGI STATUS


The European Commission has given its blessing to the protection of the term "Scottish Farmed Salmon" as a protected geographical indication (PGI) for Scottish farmed salmon. This is one of seven new notifications by national governments under Article 5 of Regulation 2081/92.

The IPKat can't help feeling that "Scottish farmed salmon" is a desperately descriptive term: how will producers of salmon that is farmed in Scotland, but which falls outside the scope of the officially sanctioned process attached to the PGI, be able to tell consumers that their salmon has been farmed in Scotland?
