How about "Domestic Parmesan"? or maybe spell it phonetically like a lot of other advertised products?

I don't think Kraft should be able to call that garbage in the green can "Parmesan" cheese either... But I think Shimlau's right in that requiring manufacturers to include "domestic" in the name wouldn't be that difficult of an accommodation. But I think this is all a little late coming. They should've pushed this issue decades ago...

Does anyone here REALLY want the U.S. to become like Europe?

Yep, important stuff here.....

I think the last paragraph with the dairy farmer's quote makes an excellent point. Where would parmesan or feta be in America without American advertising, American marketing, and American production? If the EU gets their wish, what is more likely to happen is not more Americans buying imported European cheese. Rather our penchant for marketing will likely spawn new product names that will be more popular than the European place names.

And I'm sorry. The country of Greece does not own a copyright on the use of the Greek alphabet.
