I spoke to you a short while ago about a David and Goliath situation regarding the use of the word "Coeur" (heart) in brands of cheese in France. RichesMonts, a major cheese company sued, in a heavy-handed way, a tiny farmhouse producer from the Lozère area who had dared to name its cheese "Coeur de Vache", too close to their liking, to their major brand "Coeur de Lion". The National Institute for Industrial Property found in favour of the plaintiff saying there was a risk of confusion among the public between the two brands.
The Court of Appeal in Aix en Provence however has now found in favour of the defendant, and you can see why by comparing the two packs side by side.
Which prompts me to give pleasure to Marcel Gousseau, once a cheese professional and now a regular reader of the French version of this blog, with this selection of (current and past) cheese brands with "heart". Quite a collection.
And this prompts me (the translator) to wonder if, among British readers of this site, there are some who are old enough to remember having in childhood a collection of cheese labels alongside their postage stamps and foreign coins!
