McDonalds sues McCurry
 
Quote:

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - An eight-year legal battle between fast food giant McDonald's and a Malaysian restaurant called McCurry over copyright infringement is set to continue on Monday in the country's highest court.

McDonald's, which has 185 outlets in Malaysia, is appealing against the decision made on April 29 that its trademark had not been infringed upon by the local restaurant, which has one outlet in the Southeast Asian country's capital of Kuala Lumpur.


McCurry serves Malaysian staples such as fish head curry and is short for "Malaysian Chicken Curry," according to the company website (Original McCurry Recipe, McCurry Taste and McCurry Food from McCurry Restaurant Malaysia).


"The whole issue is about the name of my restaurant on the signboard," McCurry owner, P. Suppiah told Reuters on Friday.


Monday's hearing in the federal court will determine if the


case goes to another trial.


The McDonald's operation in this country of 27 million people is run as a franchise by prominent businessman Vincent Tan.


"McDonald's vigorously defends its trademarks against violations anywhere in the world. This particular case is no different," McDonald's Asia corporate relations vice president, Liam Jeory, said in an emailed statement.

I remember before McDonalds sold "McFlurries" this very popular local convenience store sold that same sort of thing and called it a "Flurry". Well, when McDonald began selling the product and bought up the rights to the name "McFlurry" and anything close to it they went after these small Mom and Pop shops and made them remove the name "Flurry". These small convience stores were no threat to McDonalds. Anyway, it just goes to show you that big corporations all bully anyone who they want. Corporations have many benefits but the negatives they bring in to a community, such as killing small time business, or aka. entrepreneurship, really make you wonder if we've taken the correct road as a society. A burger for a buck is nice but is a corporate ruled society worth it?

They're all the same unless they're non-profit.

Some non-profit organizations are awful. There are even some crooked charities and as much as I support animal rights, the people at PETA are crazy spilling animal blood on expensive leather. Their new thing I'll stick with my own skin is when they go naked. What a bunch of nut jobs!
