February: The year in business

Slovakia keeps Tokaj brand. Slovakia’s producers of Tokaj wine can continue to use the brand name after the European Court of Justice (ECJ) declared that the listing of the Slovak wine name “Vinohradnícka oblasť Tokaj” in the E-Bacchus register of protected designations of origins “does not constitute an actionable measure”. The European Commission added the name to the register after Slovakia requested that it be a protected designation of origin on the list of quality wines in specified regions. Hungary subsequently challenged the decision to register the name in Slovakia, but the ECJ turned down the appeal on February 13.
