A Barcelona tapas bar chain lost a European Union court dispute with French wine makers over its use of the name “Champanillo” and a logo of two clinking Champagne glasses.

一家巴塞隆納連鎖小酒館因使用Champanillo之名和2個互碰香檳杯圖樣當標誌,在歐盟法院與法國葡萄酒製造商的訴訟中敗訴。

An EU protection for the name Champagne also shields it against the use of similarly sounding names, the EU’s Court of Justice ruled .

歐盟法院裁決,歐盟對香檳名稱的保護,也保護其名稱不能被用於類似發音之名。

EU court challenges over other producers’ use of protected names for food and beverages aren’t rare. What’s new in this case is the use of a name similar to Champagne by a service provider.

歐盟法院中因為其他生產商使用受保護之食物、飲料名稱而提告的案件並不少見。本案不同之處在於,是服務業者使用類似香檳的名稱。

The court ruled that the EU protection covers other products and services and aims to “assure consumers that agricultural products bearing a registered geographical indication have certain specific characteristics.”

法院裁決,歐盟的保障涵蓋其他產品和服務,旨在「向消費者確保具有註冊在案產地標示的農產品擁有特定特色。」
