Paramount Uses Copyright Claims Board to Protect Coming to America’s “Big Mick” Burger
Paramount has filed a copyright infringement claim against a company that opened a “McDowell’s”, inspired by the Coming to America movie. The pop-up restaurant, which sold the famous “Big Mick,” misled the public and sold burgers of questionable quality, Paramount notes. The case is being handled by the recently launched Copyright Claims Board.
In June, the US Copyright Claims Board was launched.
Through this venue, hosted at the US Copyright Office, rightsholders can try to recoup alleged damages outside the federal court system.
Just over a hundred cases have been filed thus far, mostly by smaller independent creators, but some large companies have found their way to the board as well.
