Chinese media reports that Kentucky Fried Chicken is taking legal action against the management of “Obama Fried Chicken” on grounds of trademark infringement.

A store bearing the “OFC” livery – complete with Obama’s likeness replacing that of the Colonel – reportedly appeared in Beijing, causing rapid reverberations online and an almost equally rapid response from KFC proper, which vowed legal action.

The store was apparently the work of one of China’s notoriously innovative entrepreneurs, in this a case a university student, and had not yet opened.

This is not the first time KFC has had to deal with Chinese pretenders – previously it had to tackle “KFG”:

Other fast food companies have also been flattered by such imitators as McDnoalds, to say nothing of Apple’s recent and decidedly creepy discovery of an entire chain of replica Apple stores…

    whatever you call it, the poor will be the poor and the rich will get richer. Of course, a government isn't really necessary in the first place.

    As the saying goes... the enemy sits in your own country - at the top.

    Because communist countries have a wonderful record of reporting on such statistics as crime rates incredibly accurately. Not to mention the fact no 3rd party independent organization could report anything that the government wouldn't want said.

    I for one support communism, but I don't support china's government.

    China is only communist in name. They're closer to a socialist regime. Unfortunately, few recognize this because countries who claim to be communist and claim to follow the communist manifesto written by Marx and Engels, are really something else entirely.

    You can't be serious. As bad as the US has been in some respects, they would have miles to go before catching up with any "workers paradise" that's existed on the planet in oppression, coercion, murder, thuggery and general incompetence.

    Every time Communism has been implemented in a country it has failed miserably and usually with the deaths of millions of people.

    Your view of a "workers paradise" is myth because it goes against the grain of basic human nature.

    People are naturally perverse and corrupt. When given absolute authority and put in positions of power like the aparatchiks in the CCCP it's a disaster.

    I'm no big supporter of capitalism but Marx and Engles theories are pie in the sky and will never work in the real world. 75 years of Soviet rule in Russia did nothing but replace one oppressive regime (Czar) with another (Lenin, Stalin et al.) and the people suffered miserably under both.

    Not news, history. Are you saying the Great Leap Forward, The Cultural Revolution and Tiananmen Square didn't hapen or were grossly exagerated?
    I can go on any website and say Obama sucks and be relatively secure someone isn't going to trace my IP and bust down my door. Don't think the same would be true in PRC for ragging the Premier.
    Ask a Russian if the press is more free now than it was under CCCP rule.

    Free of Democracy and Capitalism? Sure, they can be "bad" in some minor aspects, but overall.... What.

    As for the US terrorizing the World, it depends on your perspective of what they do. US intervention makes people mad, but when they do nothing, that tends to also make people mad.

    Communism is one of the lowest providers of individual freedoms (who doesn't want freedom?). It also has some of that good ol' oppression factor. Herpderp.

    In communist countries, there are less individual freedoms and an oppression factor. Herpderp.

    "Can we be free of the democracy?"
    "Can we be free of the capitalism?"
    "Can we be free of the USA terrorising the world?"

    Why would be communism bad? In communist countries there are no debts or high crime rates.

    I can't say that for the most democratic country on world! (that there are low crime rates and low debt)

    as always china sucks big time. i wander what type of respect one should have for them. i just saw the previous notes on similar incidents, and they
    are disgusting. what can we expect for the future if everyone keeps hailing them as the future economy, yet they behave like this?
    i hope KFC makes an example of this.

    We Westerns are free from any flaws at all.

    Because a country like America so doesn't deserves to have the the title "World Police"./sarcasm

    Face it, respect and expectations mean fuck all when it comes to countries as a whole. I have as much respect for UK (my own country) as I do China and US. Because I can cherry pick any fault I want whiles blissfully ignoring another and join the hypocrite club.

    Let's ignore the human rights violations, the general hatred, the repeated offerings of horror stories from China then, shall we?

    This isn't cherry picking a flaw; US has flaws as well, but China has many more flaws that have become apparent over the years. You seem to haven't read the many horror stories on here, hm? Sure, China's violations don't measure up to other third world countires, but it being the most readily apparently -- and easily spotted -- also makes it harder to ignore. And China is apart of the U.N.

    The U.S. and U.K. have also had plenty of faults, some even in human rights, but those? They aren't nearly as horrific as the stories that come out of China.

    tl;dr: welcome to the world of tomorrow, where the grass is bluer on the other side.

    You know anon, you're not far off. Their chickens (in the USA) are raised in basically warehouse mosh pits of shoulder to shoulder chickens wading in a pool of liquid feces. If you want to look them up, it's raised by Tyson Farms.

    So if you've ever wondered why they seem to be sort of dwarfed it's because they've never known the robust exercise of walking in a straight line for more than a foot.
