Ukraine is notorious for its copyright laws or lack there of and people often point to the fast food chain of McFoxy as a prime example of how you can basically get away with anything in terms of copying a successful business. McFoxy famously built a restaurant right next to the McDonald's across from the Kiev train station to much fan fair. In the end though, McDonald's has not sued McFoxy because they have previously tried suing a coffee retailer called MacCoffee in the Ukrainian courts but lost.
We went to a different McFoxy location in Kiev with full intentions of eating there just to see what the fuss was about but after taking a look at the menu and noticing that each of their burgers seemed to have a mystery white sauce that we couldn't decide exactly what it was, we decided to eat elsewhere.
