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.
Now many stars in the entertainment circle like to show off their wealth. Now the show-off is not the kind of blatant show-off before,
but a very low-key show-off. For example, now they all like to wear expensive watches. When the stars become rich, the
y often buy luxury goods to show off their wealth. The only difference is that women like to buy a brand bag while men love watches. Let’s see below. How much watches do stars bring?
Huang Zitao is not only a star, but also a wealthy second generation. Her variety art was very popular a while ago. The watches with the
m are also quite trenches, and the famous watches with nearly 400 games are quite powerful. It seems that these kinds of arts are very profitable.
Wu Yifan, as we all know, this high-cold goddess can’t show his high-cold style without some brand name decoration. Look at his watc
h, which is very consistent with his temperament. His watch is nearly one million, after all, his film salary is still very high.
Lin Junjie, to know that this is not a good job was taken home to inherit the family business of the r
ich second generation, quite rich, their watches nearly 4 million, that can be for Lin Dazi, really nothing.
Jin Dong, an old cadre, is very good at watches. He always keeps a low profile, but he has been
sold by watches. This watch is worth 6.6 million yuan. It’s quite powerful. It’s really hidden and very rich.
Pan Weibo, who grew up listening to his song, is very handsome. In fact, he is also an invisible loc
al tyrant. This watch is the brightest one he has ever seen and looks down on, but in fact, he once wore a watch worth 13
million yuan! One word, trench! This one has to be admired, and he carries his villa with him. It’s really long-term insight! uuuuuuu
Tencent responded to the blockade query. Why did Tencent block three new social apps? On the 15th, three new social software were re
leased, namely Wang Xin’s toilet MT, today’s headline Duosheng, Luo Mou’s chat treasure, but all of them were
blocked by Wechat. Ma Huateng clearly opposed negative energy anonymous social interaction in the circle of friends.
On January 16, Tencent’s director of public relations r
esponded to the news that Wechat was shaken by three new social products on January 15. He appealed to the media to respect the facts while criticizin
g them. “We respect all rational discussions and don’t go on the line. We are not moralists.” Zhang Jun said that there is no patent in any field. Everyone in eve
ry field can do it and speak with products. “After being scolded for half a day for no reason, I have to speak, otherwise someone really should come home as T
encent Buddha, how to pinch all soft persimmons. For the three new social products, Zhang Jun said, “Anything you do will challenge hegemony. Tak
e a pile of red envelopes out to deceive users to download, retain, also ashamed to call products.
Multi-flash, toilet MT, chat treasure three social apps released the same day
Who can really challenge Wechat?
Our newspaper news (reporter Yuan Lu) is facing a collective “encirclement and suppression” of
Tencent, which is the social leader. Yesterday, headline founder Zhang Yiming, former CEO Wang Xin and H
ammer Technologies founder Luo Yonghao launched new social apps in an attempt to gain a piece of the social sector dominated by Wechat.
It is understood that Zhang Yiming’s “multi-flash” is
the first independent social product launched by tremolo, which mainly focuses on short video production and social interaction; Wang Xin’s “toilet M
T” mainly focuses on anonymous social interaction. Official introduction describes it as a dark network, which is the shadow of the circle of friends.
What can’t be seen on all micro-letters, even deleted content, may appear here, known as “anonymity”. Explore the secret
artifacts “; Luo Yonghao brought chat treasure is bullet short message upgrade, adding acquaintance circles and other functions.
According to Hong Kong media reports, the Hong Kong Consumer Council recently tested
58 samples of cookies and biscuits on the market, of which nearly 90% (51) detected carcinogens, including one of Tse Tingfeng’s biscuits.
As we all know, Tingfeng Tse is a good cook. Unlike Huang Lei and Wang Han, Tingfeng Tse is
good at making western food, desserts and biscuits. So Tse Tingfeng’s food brand is very popular, and biscuits are the most popular in the star circle.
The materials and methods of the sharp cookies are all developed by Tse Tingfeng. He is very strict with the details and the biscuits a
re exquisite. One of them is a biscuit with the theme of “sour, sweet, bitter and spicy”. The price of more than 200 yuan is not low.
On December 20, 2018, when Ajiao was married in Hong
Kong, Tingfeng Tse specially made wedding cakes for her and presented them to the guests who went to the wedding. Rel
atives and friends in Hong Kong received Kujuji’s cake, while relatives and friends in the Mainland received Tse Tingfeng’s cake.
The packaging of Tse Tingfeng’s cake is specially redesigned: “Spicy cookies” are packed in golden and double happiness gift boxes, whic
h are printed with “No matter bitter or sweet or sour, let love go hand in hand”, as well as cartoon illustrations of Agao and Lai Hongguo.
I don’t know if Ajiao’s inland relatives and friends will regret eating Tse Tingfeng’s cake
after seeing the news. Maybe they won’t want to eat it and stay at home to commemorate it. That’s better, otherwise they will be very responsive.
Wu Qinggong, a non-renowned entertainment critic, pointed out that in recent years, Tse Tingfeng has made few films and TV dram
as and seldom issued new songs, but the variety show “Fengwei” is held every year because he loves to share delicious food with friends.
After this “biscuit carcinogenic” storm, I wonder if Tse Tingfeng will put his mind on filming again? After all, he is an artist, not a businessman!
Recently, the first issue of “Singer” was successful. Many people feel that the singers of this season have attracted numerous fans,
whether Liu Huan, Yang Kun or Qiyu. Many people see Liu Huan and Yang Kun, really special excitement, as if to see a good voice.
Because after all, Yang Kun and Liu Huan have been good voice instructors, they can deign to par
ticipate in singers, it seems that Hong Tao gave them a lot of appearance fees. Now the entertainment circle is in the a
ge of lowering film pay. It seems that Liu Huan and Yang Kun’s joining this time has given Hong Tao a face. At the beginning of this season, instead of cryin
g and touching tears like last season, Mr. Hong Tao spoke calmly about this issue. As well as the later imagination, many people are also attracted by Hon
g Tao’s elegant personality. I believe that the singers in this period will not fail to live up to everyone’s expectations.
Liu Huan also won the first place in this issue. As soon as Mr. Liu Huan opened, he knew what was the real old artist. Many people te
ase Han Lei that he is the real king of songs. The key to becoming a king of songs lies in his voice, which determines his
success or failure. When it comes to singer recording, many people focus on the star’s private life and the star’s house.
Even the bits and pieces of life, even behind the scenes, are also the focus of many people’s attention.
For example, when many people watched the singer’s behind-the-scenes tidbits before, they felt l
ike Liang Qiaobo, a gentle and elegant singer, who was also a geek. At that time, he was the music director of the w
hole singer. He also helped many singers to choose songs for them. When he was filming that day, he ran all the way directly, which made the photographer e
mbarrassed. But what he said was “I’m hungry, I’m hungry.” As a result, he ran all the way and found a restaurant to eat. At that time, the owner of the restaurant
knew him. At that time, the fans were particularly distressed. I didn’t realize that the music director was so hungry that he circled a big wave of fans.
Today, many people’s circles of friends have been painted by a middle school, that is, Dinglan
Experimental Middle School in Hangzhou. The school has issued a notice to give “love leave” to single young teachers and those who are married and have no children.
Many people are curious about “love leave”. How to put “love leave”? The school has also issued a notice that qualified teachers can apply for “love leave” twice a m
onth without arranging classes and without affecting their teaching work. Of course, the school not only benefits young teachers, but also has “parent-child le
ave” and “happiness leave”. That is to say, teachers who have already married can still apply for vacation and spend more time with their children and family.
Many teachers saw the news and praised the principal of Dinglan Experimental Middle School
one after another. They felt that the principal was very human and warm-hearted. At the same time, they envied th
e teachers of Dinglan Experimental Middle School. Perhaps in many people’s eyes, teachers have always been a very stable and comfortable profession, of c
ourse, if it is a female teacher, it is also a very popular profession in the “marriage market”, should not need to worry about the problem of finding a partner.
But sometimes this is not the case, especially for many high school teachers, it is really “more difficult” to find a partner. Why d
o you say that? Because the high school teachers’work pressure is too great, there is no time and no energy to find objects. When those young teachers entered
the school just after graduation, they were usually busy in the past few years. Many schools used to put all the heavier work on the young teachers. In addition to the years when the young teach
ers began to work, it can be said that they put all their blood in the work. If they were class teachers, they would be even more terrible. They accompanied the students at six in the morning. Mor
ning exercises, check out the bedroom at 10 p.m. before leaving work, usually also live in the dormitory arranged by the school, it can be said that it is very difficult
to contact the outside world, after all, high school and primary school are different, junior high school, primary school may have a variety of activities in pe
acetime, have the opportunity to contact other people, and in high school, it can be said that the basic contact is students and colleagues. Of course, thi
s is one of the reasons why many schools are accustomed to “internal digestion” and there will be many couples of “husband and wife teachers”.
Hangzhou Dinglan Experimental Middle School stipulates that teachers can apply for this vacation
as long as they don’t delay their teaching work. I think it’s still warm-hearted. Now teachers basically implement a
strict “punch-in” system. Whether they have classes or not, as long as they work, they must stay in school. If they are class teachers, they will be busier, even if
they don’t. It is working hours and staying at school, but many schools have a tradition that the work of head teachers is basically done for young teachers, whic
h has created a contradiction that many young teachers have no chance to contact more people in society, especially
in small and medium-sized cities, where the circle of teachers is too small, so finding a target becomes a difficult problem.
Wang Xin, founder of Cloud Song Intelligence, set up a new business after his release from
prison. This morning, the first product officially launched. It is a social software called toilet MT, which mainly calls for anonymous chat.
According to official accounts, the toilet MT is a dark network of people. Because it is anonymous, it can be more aggressive to
Tucao and complain. At present, on-line toilet MT supports Android system and Apple’s iOS system. The software itself has very simple fun
ctions. The main page only has two sections: “topic” and “chat”. In the “topic” section, you
can see the topics initiated by people nearby, and the “chat” section can see the topics you participate in.
It should be noted that the current toilet MT provides users with group chat validity period of only 1 hour, after initiating group chat enters the countdown.
Because this is a design software based on LBS location information, users can initiate whisper or group chat in the form of supporting text, input method with its own expression
pack, pictures, voice and so on, which can let many people view and reply together, at the same time large. Home can also vote, but tempo
rarily do not support 1-to-1 private trust. In addition, users can add red envelopes to their whispers or group chats initiated by toilet MT.
At the product exchange meeting, Wang Xin himself talked about the rumor of “matching with Weixin” and said, “I can’t challenge it.” “A
l the good things are done by people, so we can only do what we have not done, and challenge others that have not yet been challenged.”
Wang Xin also said that the “safe distance” between the toilet and the giant was delineated. The toilet product, including all future products, will never mark any product or copy any product.
Late on the 14th, Wang Xin sent three messages on his personal authentication microblog, accusing his company of blocking the anon
ymous social product “toilet MT”. According to Wang Xin’s screenshot, at present, “toilet MT” sharing links have been blocked by
Wechat, the page shows “has stopped visiting this page”; Tencent Wang card SMS has also been blocked “toilet MT”. Wang Xin sighed, “I don’t know what you are afraid of?”
In addition, Luo Yonghao and Zhang Yiming will release their latest social products today. The products released by Zhang Yiming in t
he headline are called “multi-flash”. The products released by Luo Yonghao in the hammer are called “chat treasure”. According to netizens, these are three new formats of App’s war declaration Wechat.
