Happy Day for McCurry

McDonald's advertisingImage via Wikipedia
McDonald’s lost an eight-year trademark battle to prevent Malaysian restaurant McCurry from using the ‘Mc’ prefix. In the case of McCurry, 'Mc' refers to 'Malaysian Chicken'. McCurry serves Indian food not competing with McDonald's western food.

McCurry is a popular eatery in Jalan Ipoh on the edge of Kuala Lumpur's downtown.

I think, McDonald insist on pursuing this matter because they also one day would roll out their new product called McCurry. Since they also lost the battle, they have to give their dish another name, may be "McDonald Curry".

According to the news McDonald will also have to pay RM10,000 to McCurry, a popular eatery in Jalan Ipoh on the edge of Kuala Lumpur’s downtown. McDonald’s lawyers refused to comment, except to say the company will abide by the judgment.

If the McDonalds tried that here the Campbells would massacre them.

I've heard of them trying that in the UK and usually unsuccessfully. Whenever my wife sees a McD anywhere she says - "there's the American Embassy".
