Its always nice to see thoughtful discussions over something meaningful between the U.S. and EU.  A nice cheese flap is much better than discussing the common defense, energy costs, Ukraine, etc.  Those could be a "muenster" to deal with and "slice" relations. :whistle:

It may seem they are Stilton at windmills, yet there is a good point. Copyright law. Companies may copyright things, so may distinct geographical regions. You guys need to walk caerphilly around this issue.

I am a proud "American."

Ah, the EU. The other white meat socialists.

I understand their point, though. Here in America nobody says "I'll have a glass of sparkling wine." They ask for champagne, and of course they're served sparkling wine unless they ask for a specific label.

If this goes through then only American cheese would be rightfully ours. But, paired with a slab of meat on a bun, and a cheeseburger's not such a bad legacy for the US.
NeverTrump wants to deny you YOUR voice, YOUR presidential choice.
