McDonald’s Loses Trademark Battle With McCurry

Posted By Ben Goulding, 8 September, 2009 | permalink


McDonald’s has lost an eight year trademark battle, to prevent a small Malaysian restaurant using the “Mc” prefix, Malaysia’s highest court has ruled.

“The McCurry restaurant serves mainly roti and curries and opened in 1999.

Its logo does not resemble that of the burger chain and the owners say the name is a shortening of Malaysian Chicken Curry.”

McDonald’s now have to pay 10,000 ringgit ($2,900) to McCurry.
