I saw this McCurry while riding a bus and had to rush to snap a photo of it. This place is owned by a local business man and I remember reading about an 8 year legal battle they went through with McDonald’s, who sued them for trademark infringement. In the end, the Malaysian courts ruled in favor of McCurry, which only makes sense. I’m sure the name of this store was inspired by McDonald’s but how can you trademark the “Mc”? Though not common to Malaysia, “Mc” is a common part of names.
I guess this place followed suit and took it a step further by equating the “Mc” with an American Standard. I didn’t realize there was an American standard for McBaths or McToilets, but if you’re looking for McBathroom Fixtures this is the place for you.
