Shannon Lee’s Bruce Lee Enterprises alleges that Real Kungfu used the image on their logo without permission.
The company wants the fast-food chain to snap immediately and is seeking a compensation M30m (.1 23.1m).
The use of its logo has been approved by local authorities. The film depicts a dark-haired man in a martial arts posture.
China’s Weibo platform Gono said in a statement, “The original Kungfu Series logo has been adopted by the National Trademark Agency for rigorous testing. We have been using it for 15 years.”
“They are very happy in investigating after a long time. Currently, we are actively studying the case and preparing our response.”
