US, EU agree on food names in anti-counterfeit pact

WASHINGTON, Oct 4 (Reuters) - The United States and the European Union have resolved a fight over protections for geographically-based food names that was one of last obstacles to reaching a new international pact to fight growing trade in counterfeit goods, a U.S. official said on Monday.

“We found the solution even on that toughest of issues,” a U.S. trade official told Reuters in a briefing on a tentative deal struck over the weekend in Tokyo on the proposed Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA).
