A threatened attack has forced McRamyun’s to rename their eatery to escape a potential legal situation. The ramen restaurant changed its name recently after receiving a letter from McDonald’s indicating the prefix “Mc” and “Mac” before any food item is owned by the fast-food giant. According to a BlogTO report, the “Mc” prefix referred to a Korean word that means “pulse” or “spirit.” McDonald’s, however, was not buying the excuse. They have now renamed the restaurant to Mo’Ramyun.
Is this a case of copyright infringement? Are McDonald’s guilty of corporate bullying?
