What alternative universe are those guys in?

An absurd ruling that strips the fast-food giant of the trademark for its signature burger is a prime example of a bureaucracy run amok.
The EUIPO ruling, which McDonald’s says it plans to appeal, reads like it was written by someone who has never been to a McDonald’s. It maintains that the U.S. corporation has been unable to prove that it actually sells Big Macs, even though the fast-food chain had presented what it considered to be definitive proof, such as affidavits from employees in the U.K., Germany and France, pictures from the corporate website and even a printout from Wikipedia that describes the Big Mac as “a hamburger sold by international fast food restaurant chain McDonald’s” since 1967.
