The fast-food giant is suing Hungry Jack’s for trademark infringement after the latter launched a new “Big Jack” burger that, McDonald’s claims, bears a striking resemblance to the Big Mac.

McDonald’s calls Hungry Jack’s Big Jack “substantially identical to its Big Mac.

McDonald’s, which has held a trademark on its colossal Big Mac sandwich since 1973,  filed documents via its Asia Pacific division on Monday in the Federal Court of Australia, alleging Hungry Jack’s “deliberately adopted or imitated” the Big Mac, Reuters reported.


The Big Jack, which debuted in July, is made with two “Aussie beef patties,” lettuce, pickles, cheese and onions, sandwiched between a three-piece seeded bun. It’s also said to include “special sauce.”

McDonald’s signature sandwich, meanwhile, is served up on a similar bun and features two beef patties, pickles, lettuce, onion and American cheese, as well as a “special sauce.”
