(CN) – McDonald’s lost a super-sized trademark ruling Tuesday, with Malaysia’s highest court allowing an Indian restaurant called McCurry to use the “Mc” prefix, despite the U.S. fast-food giant’s objections.
McCurry’s owner said the prefix is an abbreviation for Malaysian Chicken Curry, according to The Associated Press.
A three-member panel of the Federal Court ruled Tuesday that McDonald’s can’t appeal a lower court’s ruling for McCurry in the eight-year dispute.
McDonald’s will have to pay about $3,000 to the Indian eatery near downtown Kuala Lumpur.
