This is a case regarding a trade mark “Al Baik”. Muslims who have been to Makkah, Saudi Arabia for pilgrimage (Hajj) and Umrah might be familiar with this name. Al Baik in Saudi Arabia is a famous restaurant serving affordable fried chicken meals owned by El Baik Food Systems Co, S.A.. However, the Al Baik restaurants in Malaysia which are located at Setapak, Bukit Bintang, Shah Alam and Kuala Lumpur are running by a company from Egypt named Al Baik Fast Food Distribution Co S.A.E.
This trade mark dispute arose from two biological brothers, Low Chi Yong and Low Chi Hong. This case is first filed at High Court and went to appeal at Court of Appeal and later, Federal Court. The Appellant has filed a claim against the Respondents for trade mark infringement. The Appellant is the sole registered proprietor of “REYNOX” trade mark.
