Hungry Jack's Uses Social Media to Keep Customers Coming Back
McDonald's Australia is threatening to supersize its trademarks lawsuit against Hungry Jack's after its rival launched a television campaign claiming the Big Jack burger is "clearly bigger" than "some American burger". The fast-food giant filed Federal Court proceedings on August 28 against Hungry Jack's over the registered trademark "Big Jack", which McDonald's claims is "substantially identical with or deceptively similar" to its Big Mac trademark. It is seeking to have the trademark cancelled. But Hungry Jack's says the trademark plays on the company's name and the name of "its founder and current owner, Jack Cowin". Following the lawsuit, Hungry Jack's released television advertisements saying "someone's suing Hungry Jack's" but the Big Jack was "clearly bigger" than "some American burger" and had "25 per cent more Aussie beef". The fast feud has played out in public since the claim was launched.
