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?

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
