The Finnish Market Court has reportedly backed MS Iceland Dairies in a legal dispute with Arla Foods over the sale of skyr dairy products in Finland. According to media reports, the court ruled that “skyr” is not a generic term for a yogurt-like cultured dairy product, but rather a specific trademark for a product made in Iceland or Denmark according to recipes held by MS Iceland Dairies. The decision bars Arla Foods from marketing or selling skyr in Finland, with violations fetching fines of €500,000. See Iceland Monitor, October 7, 2015;, October 13, 2015.
