    Default Will VH sue McDonald's for copywrite infringement?

    I was at a shopping mall in Toronto, Canada and saw this at McDonald's. Didn't he sue Nike for using the stripes?

    The lawyers will be all over that one. It's really weird too, I mean it looks cool, but what does that have anything to do with McDonald's? Unless the new VH album is going to come as the toy in the new happy meals?

    Does a Bear shit in the woods? Is the Pope Catholic?
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    That is so weird.
    Was that all over the mall or just the Micky dee's?

    Maybe the windows were busted out and that's tape holding them up till they fix em?

    Just happens to look like EVH's trademark.

    But does Eddie own anything in that pattern or just RBW?

    It's just the McDonald's, you can even see the inside walls are striped. It was remodeled lately and they call it a McDonald's Cafe. I won't eat at McDonald's so I don't know if the menu is different.

    Nice! I love that it's only one. (Either a flip or a flop, I guess.) That encourages repeat business to "collect them all."

    Which mall were you at, im?? I'd love to peek in sometime, just to see how long before they remodel again.

    Last I checked Toronto isn't part of the US. Good luck to his lawyers trying to getting a company situated in a foreign country to change the design of a restaurant that looks a little similar to his guitar. Those stripes will be there for as long as McDonalds wants them to be there.
