    EU can be pretty autistic about what's allowed to call what. Sometimes it's a good thing to prevent false advertisement, like some things like champagne can only be called champagne if it's produced in that region. everything else is sparkling wine. Kalix roe can only be called Kalix roe if it's from if it's from that bay. It helps to prevent restaurants lying about what they actually serve on their menu with a cheaper substitute.

    If someone orders a big Mac they expect it to be beef. If they want to release a new product they need to change the name instead of trying to piggyback off a famous name.

      Bit this is literally about the opposite situation. A different chain wanted to serve a chickenburger called BigMac. Obviously McDonalds wouldn't allow, so things went to court. There it was ruled that other companies can call their burgers BigMac as long as they aren't beef based.

        NTA But I think it makes sense... The purpose of trademarks is to prevent confusion or imitation right, I think you'd have to be a bit moronic to think a random chicken burger in another restaurant has anything to do with mcdonalds. Especially when Mc and Mac are common parts of irish names.

          Doesn't matter, no longer does does a small farmer have to be bullied about his San Marzano tomatoes not being grown on the Southern slope of Mt. Vesuvius. This is a monumental president for small European businesses being bullied by the elite.

          that's bullshit. a restaurant that sells a big mac is text book consumer brand confusion and why the laws exist. this is just another example of the EU having anti american bias.

          part of the purpose of trademarks is to prevent people from capitalizing on the advertising factor as well. in the US you can't sell a "big mac pizza" even though it wouldn't be confused with a burger, because it's drawing advertising based on the trademarked name.

    Honestly, it's this kind of stupid little shit that makes me think frick NATO. Europe in general has just been an economic drain on us. Wouldn't have mattered a bit if it fell to the Nazis, to the USSR, or whoever. I'd happily cut all treaty ties and pull all resources in a heartbeat.

        No clue what you're talking about. I'm just talking about how Europe is an anchor on the US. They generally don't like us. We generally don't care too much for them. Our goals are different. Literally zero reason to keep ourselves tied to them.

            I don't care if Russia falls tomorrow. Europe is a parasite on the US economy. NATO is one of the primary chains that creates the chain and anchor. Europe has the manpower and gear to be able to beat back Russia on their own without a single dime from us or piece of equipment. It doesn't matter to us in the slightest other than "well that sucks for them" if Russia gets wiped out entirely or if they manage to take back all of the Bloc states. That's strictly a European issue. If I were to budge from my anti-interventionism view anywhere on the globe it would be SEA/western pacific because China moving on Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea would directly cause us a shitton of damage economically, but even with that, we shouldn't have offshored so much shit there to begin with. If we got out of our own way, we'd have plenty of production and tech production here. What do we lose if Europe falls? People who look down on us and b***h about us continuing to do so? Some overpriced cars? Some cheeses, wines, and cured pork? Ok, and? So what?
            We could bring back most of our military, and just leave out Navy to protect the waters we trade through. Just through eliminating aid programs that go to europe, you're looking at almost $20bn off the books. Getting rid of military bases outside of the US would free up another $55bn ($80bn when you include personnel costs).

            The upside for all of this just doesn't exist. It gets us trading partners who do everything they can to prevent buying anything we make while trying to dump their shit on us for a premium. They're free riders. Frick, we even subsidize THEIR healthcare.

            Continuing it has minimal upside for us, massive costs, and just isn't worth it any more.

              Less than a 100 billion dollars is next to nothing for a country with a GDP over 20 trillion. You sound like as much as a b***h as those tight jean wearing doing drugs going to dance at the discotheque eurogays.

                And how are you the informed to such a degree to make such a big decision. Do you have access to classified documents. Have you spend, not just an hour a day watching the news, but devoted your entire life to understanding the consequences for any particular action. Know your roll, and shut the frick up.

                Not even in the slightest. Europe provides exactly nothing on which we have to depend. Right now, our only real dependency is on Asia for fabs, which if we did the right way, we'd have no problem producing here.

                Part of this is hilariously Europe's own fault too. They've made sure to ensure that their products are all sold at premium (read as: a luxury), so nothing that comes from them doesn't have a much cheaper substitute from elsewhere.

                Cutting ties would hurt the frick out of Europe, but not so much us.

    Why did the EU give McDonald's the trademark in the first place a couple of decades ago, if this is what they think. The truth of the matter is, more and more Europeans are eating at American fast food chains for a plethora of reason, and traditional restaurants are taking a beating, and obviously are furious. Their decision isn't logical, because it's purely political. And I'm afraid they've opened up pandora's box, and there food laws are going to be fricked with for awhile.
