: I thought the USA were the only ones that were sue happy. I've got an idea,why don't all the people in Ireland by the name of McDonald sue for name infringement. From what I've seen and heard about British food, McDonald's should be considered haute cusine.

The USA are sue-happy. Remember that McDonald's sued against "What's wrong with McDonalds?", not the other way round, and a right mess they made of it. I'm going to enjoy watching the share price plummet over the next few months. And, by the way, I like British food. Yesterday I had a pub lunch - steak and kidney pie, followed by treacle-tart and custard. It was wonderful, and totally uncloneable in any dreary fast-food chain.

All power to McLibel two.
