I suppose that they will go after Big Mack trucks next ?
Hmmm... So they can't call it big mac. I wonder what they will change it to?...
Notbigmac...xmac....mcmac... I quit eating there family member got food poisioning
Poetic Justice, karma, etc. From what I've read Ray Kroc (sp?) stole the name of the corporation from a locally popular restaurant actually owned by two brothers named McDonald, who sold a hamburger called "Big Mac".
All is fair in love & commerce.
As I understand it the original sandwich was Bob's Big Boy .
Supermacs is rather tasty, I can highly recommend it lol.
if there was truth in advertising it would be called the "double stack low grade mac"
Pretty good movie on Netflix called “The Founder” starring Michael Keaton. Goes in on all that about the brothers and everything.
Not the first time...
I'm shocked this hasn't been posted yet....
Another great tune from Mr. Knopfler....
And the first store that Ray Kroc (like Crocodile but spelled with a K) opened in Des Plaines, IL and they now have a museum on the site:
We need In n Out here
Kind of trying to wrap my head around this. The article says McD’s lost the trademark to “Big Mac” because they had not proven genuine use. They sell millions of those burgers? Is it something they slacked on you think during the debate/hearing/whatever?
Goes on to expound about the use of “SnackBox” for SuperMac. They have the trademark, but no product. EU is saying use it or lose it.
But McDonalds does have a product they use under the name Big Mac? What do they mean, no proven use? I’ll read it again. Maybe I missed something.
All in consideration, Big Mac sandwich at McD’s versus SuperMac chain. I say let ‘em have the name, I think we’re able to distinguish the sandwich from a standalone chain.
Good. Karma. I remember when the below went down. People were pissed off:
“(In 1994) in Half Moon Bay (near) San Francisco, McDonald's successfully forced a small cafe, known for 17 years as McCoffee, to change its name. "This is the moment I surrendered the little 'c' to corporate America," lamented Elizabeth McCaughey, who, as owner of the coffee shop, had titled it as an adaptation of her surname. "It stinks, but the little guy just doesn't have the money to fight it," added cafe regular Shirley Brey.”
It been called M Coffee ever since...
Actually Mc D’s didn’t start selling the Big Mac until well after they started. As I understand it, the Big Mac was a creation of one of the franchise owners.
I think it has more to do with the metric system than copyrights, but in France you can’t get a Quarter Pounder.
They’re called a Royal there instead.
