http://fox6now.com/2014/04/19/bill-morgan-says-bologna-to-eu-trademarking-idea/ That's right, the EU wants to trademark the names of certain food items. What that means, I'm not entirely sure. I'm assuming by the article's tone that if the EU gets its way, us American authors would no longer legally be allowed to use such words as "Swiss cheese" or "French Fries" in our stories without paying some unknown entity a sum of money for the "rights" to use it. Honestly, what's next? Human beings being barred from speaking or writing because every word in the English language is trademarked by someone? Idiocy, plain and simple.
