In May 2011 the EGC handed down a judgment on the txakoli affair. It confirms the refusal for this term to be registered as a community trade mark, as it is considered not to have a distinguishing nature and, at the end of the day, because the public perceives it as a type of wine. Nevertheless, it stresses that this does not currently affect the exclusive right held by the Designation of Origin Regulatory Boards of the Basque provinces of Bizkaia and Araba and the Gipuzkoan town of Getaria over the term Txakoli, which has led to different interpretations.
