McDonald’s Loss of Exclusive Use of Big Mac Trademark

Xinhua News Agency, Beijing, January 17 (Reporter Zhao Manjun) Irish fast food

chain Super Mac Co. said on January 15 that the European

Union Intellectual Property Office (EU Intellectual Property Office) ruled to revoke the trademark of “Big Mac”

registered by McDonald’s in the EU, which lost the exclusive right to use the trademark.

McDonald’s responded that day, refusing to accept the verdict and preparing to file

a complaint. Since 1998, the company has trademarked its best-selling double-decker beef hambu

rger in Europe, including “Big Mac” and “BIG MAC” and “Grand Big Mac” variants. This ruling revokes the

registered trademark “BIG MAC” in English capital letters.

Super Mac applied to the European Intellectual Property Office to revoke

some of McDonald’s trademarks in 2017, citing McDonald’s

failure to “really use” registered trademarks. The latter last week ruled

that McDonald’s could not prove that it had “genuinely used” all registered tradema

rks in EU member states for five consecutive years, so it approved Super

Mac’s application to revoke the former “Big Mac” and other trademark registration.

SuperMac said that although no product was named after Big Mac, McDonald’s prevented the latte

r from expanding its business scale on the grounds that the English name of

Supermac was similar to Big Mac.

According to the company, after the ruling, in addition to McDonald’s, other

fast-food chains will be able to name their fast-food products “Big Mac” in the future.

In an e-mail to Reuters, Pat McDonald, founder of Super Mac, said, “The

company is happy to win the trademark (revocation) appl

ication.” Large enterprises will not be able to “bully” smaller competitors by

“using a large number of registered trademarks and then idling them”.

McDonald’s said in an e-mail to Bloomberg on the 15th that it was

“disappointed” with the ruling of the European Intelle

ctual Property Office and would appeal to the Alicante institution in Spain,

confident of “reversing the result”.

The multinational fast-food giant has previously submitted to the European

Intellectual Property Office (IPA) proof such as printed co

rporate webpages, posters, product packaging materials and employee testimony in an attempt to prove that

registered trademarks are “genuinely used” in business activities.

In its ruling, the European Intellectual Property Office said McDonald’s had to provide specific t

ypes of evidence to support employee testimony, which could not be used by

corporate websites, posters and packaging materials. In addition, the Intell

ectual Property Office is unable to judge whether or how consumers “buy”

products with specific trademarks from McDonald’s Web pages.

What’s wrong with the price reduction of many iPhones?

In recent years, many models of the iPhone have been lowered in price, and the performance-price ratio has improved to a

certain extent. Many users want to change their mobile phones. So how can we choose the best one among the many iPhones?

1. The iPhone 6S Plus

The iPhone 6S Plus features a 5.5-inch screen design, a 2GB memory design and a dual-core Apple A9 processor. It is comparable to the mainstream flagship on the market in terms of user experience. The iPhone 6S Plus uses a front-end 5-megapixel camera and a rear 12-megapixel single camera. With the advent of iOS 12, the iPhone 6S Plus will become smoother. The launch of the new system will further improve the user experience of the 6S Plus.

2, iPhone7

The iPhone 7 is a small screen phone with a screen of only 4.7 inches. In terms of performance, the strength of the A10 processor can not be underestimated, and there are still great advantages for many domestic flagships. The battery capacity is 1960 mA. The lens of the iPhone 7 is a rear single-camera lens with 12 million pixels. Compared with the domestic flagship aircraft, the pixels of the iPhone 7 may be lower, but Apple’s unique algorithm makes the image of the iPhone 7 amazing.

3, iPhoneX

The iPhone X uses a 5.8-inch OLED Liu Hai screen, which has a high restoring degree and exquisite display effect. With the A11 processor, there is no need to worry about its performance. Compared with most domestic computers, the performance of the iPhone X is better in daily use and in games. Now that Apple pushes IOS 12, the use of the iPhone X will feel better. The camera has 7 million pixels in front and 12 million + 12 million in back.

When text messages, address books, photos and videos are deleted by mistake, you can find the mobile phone data recovery wizard in the mobile phone application treasure or browser. With this tool, you can quickly retrieve the lost mobile phone data!

The performance of the above three mobile phones is excellent enough in terms of cost-effective ratio and configuration, and the largest number of users is the three iPhones. After the price reduction of Apple models, it is still very valuable! You have other opinions on the recommendation of Xiaobian. You can leave a message in the comments section.

German politicians have not been spared from the cyber attack on

German politicians were almost wiped out by cyber attacks. Today, there is an “earthquake” on

the German Internet: in addition to the extreme right-wing German New Choice Party

The whole German politicians have been attacked on the Internet. Hundreds of German politicians, including Angela Merkel, the German

Chancellor, have their personal information blown up by hackers and all of them have been publicly posted on Twitter.

It is understood that hackers have stolen the released information, in addition to contacts, including politicians’personal chat records and

financial details and other sensitive information. In addition, there are also some celebrities, journalists lying guns, data was “stolen” by hackers.

At present, the German government has no clue as to who was behind the attack. Horst Seehofer, the interior minister, said the authorities were trying to find the perpetrators.

And in the event of such a major incident, he also dutifully defended the German government’s cyber security, saying there is no evidence that the German parliament or government system has been damaged.

According to available information, the leak originated from a Twitter account in Hamburg. Authorities in the northern German city said they were working with the Irish Data Protection Commissioner to prevent data dissemination among German politicians.

The reason for working with Ireland is that Twitter’s European headquarters is in Dublin, the Irish capital. In theory, the Irish Data Protection Agency is responsible for the leak.

Mold shuts down personal applications in the hope of making

The Kadashian sisters shut down their personal apps, and Mould announced that they would shut down their apps, but her reasons were untenable.

British media reported a few days ago that Taylor Swift officially announced that her personal apps would be shut down in another month.

By that time, all virtual currencies would not have the function of trading. And on all app stores, the AP can no

longer be downloaded. Actually, this app has been on line for more than a year, and is synchronized with her global concert.

Careful media found that the time she announced the closure of the app was just two weeks after the Kim

Kardashian sisters announced the closure of their personal app. Kadashian sisters, each of them had their own App.

The name of the mildew concert is honor because it was stimulated by Kim Kadashan’s husband. In a new song released by Kanye, he teased

a singer named Taylor. A lot of people put this in the same seat as Taylor Swift. He also admitted that, in fact, this is the case.

In this case, Taylor’s agent came forward to protest and went into legal proceedings to sue Mr.

Kan. Kan Ye even told the public about his telephone recording with Taylor.

In the phone, Taylor’s own consent was sought, so there was a ridiculous lyric. Taylor’s case ended in failure, so she was so angry that she named her

concert honor. She felt that this kind of behavior of Kan Ye had damaged her reputation.

Kim Kardashian sisters, the reason they shut down their APP is because the family reality show, the audience is very unoptimistic. And the sisters

through their own APP, so the traffic is separated a lot, so it is difficult to concentrate the strength of the family again.

So they choose to shut down their personal App, so they can make the Kardashian Jenna family more holistic. For Mildew, the reason why

she shut down her AP is mainly because her concert is about to end, so the APP has no meaning.

But for the American media, they have a very ironic point of view that her reason is not enough, not tenable.

This is because Taylor’s personal app, although it can sell tickets, but the operating cost yield gap is very large, so the project can not continue.

James, the first letter in Harden’s list, fell out of the top five

NBA official website updates the MVP rankings today. James Harden, who just ranked in the top five last week, continues to rise

at a rocket speed, surpassing the alphabet brother to the top of the list, while LeBron James, who has recently been injured, falls out of the top five.

Harden rose to the top of the list1. James Harden, RocketLast week’s ranking: 5Average field data: 33.6 points, 5.6 rebounds, 8.6 assists and 2.1 steals

In yesterday’s overtime victory over Warriors away from home, Harden scored 40 + triple-doubles for the second consecutive game – his fifth

consecutive 40 + score and a fatal three-point hit in the last second, leading the Rockets back to victory in a disadvantageous situation where they were 20 points behind. In the past, Harden’s

continued fierce performance has shocked the chin, and the three-point killing of the Warriors is just his latest masterpiece.

Obviously, Harden is not satisfied with just one MVP, and is ready to win the award in a row. Which of the following achievements is more

impressive? 11 consecutive 30 + performances? Or lead the team to six consecutive wins without Paul? Almost on his own, he led the

Rockets out of their previous 11-14 predicament and back into the ranks of Western competitors.

2. Yannis-Adeto Kunbo, BucksLast week’s ranking: 1Average field data: 26.3 points, 12.6 rebounds, 6.1 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.6 blockades

There is no sign of any slowdown in the attack of the Alphabetic Songs on the East or even on the whole alliance. His Bucks have just won four

consecutive victories and eight of the last nine battles. If it hadn’t been for Harden’s nuclear-weapon-level performance, he would have continued to be the top MVP player in 2019.

However, Copenhagen’s outstanding personal performance this season has been fully reflected in the voting process of MVP. In the first round of voting announced yesterday,

he became the voter of the whole East. If this trend continues, he will eventually become the captain of the Eastern Team, and LeBron-James

candidate PK, a showdown between male and female. Having won the league’s best 26-10, Alphabet Brother and Bucks’next goal should be in the playoffs.

3. Stephen Cooley, WarriorLast week’s ranking: 4Average field data: 28.9 points, 5.1 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 1.3 stealsYesterday’s game with the Rockets was rare enough.

shooting, he was still enough to help the team win – after all, they were 20 points ahead at most. All this, just because they met James Harden.

Lady Melisandre stirred. “Tell me, Lord Snow …

Lady Melisandre stirred. “Tell me, Lord Snow … where were these other kings when the wild people stormed your Wall?”

“A thousand leagues away and deaf to our need,” Jon replied. “I have not forgotten that, my lady. Nor will I. But my father’s bannermen have wives and children to

protect, and smallfolk who will die should they choose wrongly. His Grace asks much of them. Give them time, and you will have your answers.”

“Answers such as this?” Stannis crushed Lyanna’s letter in his fist.

“Even in the north men fear the wroth of Tywin Lannister. Boltons make bad enemies as well. It is not happenstance that put a flayed man on their banners.

They north rode with Robb, bled with him, died for him. They have supped on grief and death, and now you come to

offer them another serving. Do you blame them if they hang back? Forgive me, Your Grace, but some will look at you and see only another doomed pretender.”

“If His Grace is doomed, your realm is doomed as well,” said Lady Melisandre. “Remember that, Lord Snow. It is the one true king of Westeros who stands before you.”

Jon kept his face a mask. “As you say, my lady.”

I could feel Mother’s hand pressed against my poundingheart.

The trapdoor resisted with sharp cries. Mahisha was besidehimself – he looked as if he were about to burst through thebars.

He seemed to hesitate between staying where he was, atthe place where his prey was closest but most certainly out

ofreach, and moving to the ground level, further away but wherethe trapdoor was located. He raised himself and started snarlingagain.

The goat started to jump. It jumped to amazing heights. Ihad no idea a goat could jump so high. But the back

 

of thecage

was a high

and smooth

cement wall.

Castle Black seemed a bleak and forlorn place in the

Castle Black seemed a bleak and forlorn place in the pale dawn light. My command, Jon Snow reflected ruefully, as much a ruin as it is a stronghold. The Lord Commander’s Tower was a shell, the Common Hall a pile of

blackened timbers, and Hardin’s Tower looked as if the next gust of wind would knock it over … though it had looked that way for years. Behind them rose the Wall: immense, forbidding, frigid, acrawl with builders pushing up a

new switchback stair to join the remnants of the old. They worked from dawn to dusk. Without the stair, there was no way to reach the top of the Wall save by winch. That would not serve if the wildlings should attack again.

“How well, though?” Ser Godry drew his own blade. “Show us. I promise not to hurt you, lad.”

How kind of you. “Some other time, ser. I fear that I have other duties just now.”

“You fear. I see that.” Ser Godry grinned at his friends. “He fears,” he repeated, for the slow ones.

“You will excuse me.” Jon showed them his back.

“Yes, it is,” said Father, annoyed. “It may very well savetheir lives.”Save our lives! It was no longer a small alarm bell thatwas ringing in my head – they

were big bells now, like theones we heard from Sacred Heart of Jesus Church, not farfrom the zoo.

“But Piscine? He’s only eight,” Mother insisted.
“He’s the one who worries me the most.””I’m innocent!” I burst out. “It’s Ravi’s fault, whatever it is.

He did it!””What?” said Ravi. “I haven’t done anything wrong.” Hegave me the evil eye.

“Shush!” said Father, raising his hand. He was looking atMother. “Gita, you’ve seen Piscine. He’s at that age when boysrun around and poke their noses everywhere.”Me? A run-arounder? An everywhere-nose-poker? Not so,not

so! Defend me, Mother, defend me, I implored in myheart. But she only sighed and nodded, a signal that theterrible

 

business could

proceed.

“Come with me,”

said Father.

Recently, a Dutch court ruled against a lawsuit by Fujian villagers of

Recently, a Dutch court ruled against a lawsuit by Fujian villagers of China

against Dutch Tibetans for reclaiming the statue of Master Zhang sitting in the body of Buddha, on the grounds that it was unclear whether the villagers’Committee of China had the right to file a lawsuit.

A lot of Chinese people are angry when news of the verdict comes out. This is the logic of robbers. The Buddha is ours. It also says that we have no right to appeal to the law. That’s a wonderful reason.

Maybe some netizens don’t know what happened. One night in December 1995,

the guard of Lin’s ancestral temple in Yangchun Village, Wushan Township,

Datian County, Fujian Province, fell asleep and the ancestor Zhang, who was enshrined in the ancestral temple, disappeared.

Zhang Gongzu, known by villagers in Yangchun Village, Fujian Province as

“the benefactor of Kaishan”, is a Taoist monk. Zhang Gongzu sat down and

became a Buddha. The ancestors of Yangchun Village in Fujian made it into a

body sitting Buddha, which has been enshrined in Lin’s ancestral temple.

In October 2014, the Hungarian Museum

of Natural Science held an exhibition “Mummy World”, where a statue of Chinese Buddhist and monk’s body,

labeled about 1100 A.D., was also displayed.

Some people are surprised to find that this Chinese Buddha statue is very similar to the body treasure of Zhang

Gong-liu Quan, who was stolen in the Song Dynasty in 1995. Moreover, there are some words on the Buddha cushion,

such as “this hall’s general seal of Zhang

this Buddha statue on display is the stolen Buddha statue in Yangchun Village.

So the villagers of Yangchun Village, Wushan Township, Datian County,

Fujian Province, submitted evidence to the Dutch court, saying that the

mummies in the exhibition were the Buddha statues they had lost.

According to Dutch media reports, the owner of the Buddha statue is an

architect in Amsterdam. He said his collection of Buddha statues is indeed very similar to those lost in Yangchun

Village, Fujian Province. However, the Yangchun village Buddha statue in Fujian Province was stolen in October of the Lunar calendar in 1995, and his

collection of Buddha statues was earlier than this time, that is to say, the possibility of the two Buddha statues

being the same is small. However, such collectors claim

that if it can be proved that the

Buddha was the one claimed

stolen by Fujian villages,

he would return the Buddha.

The game fish anchor deliberately dropped points in the live of LOL

The game fish anchor deliberately dropped points in the live broadcast of LOL, and

then maltreated vegetables. After being discovered by careful netizens, he took the initiative to admit the mistakes. The next edition will take you to see the specific reasons for the accident.

What’s the matter with LOL Sima’s live apology?

As a result, the word of mouth among LOL players has dropped sharply in recent days, and live broadcasters are full of various rhythmic barrages. For this kind of behavior,

Da Sima responded to it for the first time since its broadcast. In the live broadcast, Da Sima personally admitted that he had lost points to the Silver Bureau after the

broadcast, and publicly apologized to all those who cared about it.

Dasima also explained why he did so:

“No way, but, how to do, and no number, can only sow every day for several hours to drop points, or not hit ah, I hope you can understand. I’m very sorry, but I won’t do it since I’ve been found out.”

Subsequently, Dasima played the golden section in the live broadcast, and did not block the ID of other players. It can be seen that the players ranked by Dasima are basically gold, silver and platinum segments. In the last round of the ranking, Sima

pulled out the demon girl in the single-to-line Akari, although the middle way has won the advantage, but too many teammates died, ultimately unable to return to heaven.

Subsequently, Dasima also shut down the live broadcasting after the broadcast of self-mockery and disgrace.

After Sima apologized, many players said that it was not easy for him to apologize at

the top of the storm; some players also said that apologizing was useless, because his behavior destroyed too many players’game experience.

Looking at the reason for his apology, will netizens buy his bills? After all, Dashima is

also one of the most popular OL

anchors in the game, and I don’t

know if it will have an impact on

his future live broadcasting!
