Too late!

The cheeze name is universally accepted.

They should have protected their BRAND, much like other businesses.

Words like 'saran wrap' to refer to plastic wrap and 'kleenix' facial tissue are universally accepted words, even though they ONCE were BRAND names.

Same for 'Xerox copies', which are now made on a number of different BRAND name machines.

Europe snoozed too long on this. You snooze, you lose !!
