German Federal Patent Court decides on the "Munich White Sausage"

According to a final decision of the German Federal Patent Court, the "Munich White Sausage" does not meet the requirements of European Community law for a registration as a geographical indication. According to the judgment, the "Munich White Sausage" is a "regional, mainly southern Bavarian speciality which is, however, not limited to the region of Munich". For decades, the bigger parts by far have come, however, from other Bavarian regions.
