Here's a rip off of the KFC Logo, in Leeds. It's named YFC, "Yorkshire Fried Chicken".

The KFC logo is internationally recognised.

I’m 100% sure it was copied And they are using FFC's brand and reputability to promote their own business.

There's Halal Friend Chicken in Leeds too, also under the name Yorkshire Fried Chicken!

In the UK numerous restaurants can be found that take the same approach, using many of the KFC brand elements in a slightly altered form, with names such as LFC, MFC, PFC, FCKF, and FCUK, moving on to such diverse guises as Kansas, Tennessee, Mississippi, or Kennedy Fried Chicken (see above) and then the more unusual hybrids such as Hentucky, Dixy, Dallas, Texas, Texa, Tex-Ess and Kenssy Fried Chicken. Examples include YFC in Leeds UK - Yorkshire fried chicken, HFC in Middlesbrough UK - Halal Fried Chicken, Krunchy Fried Chicken in Liverpool.

They're all run by asians and have an indian takeaway menu too

Could this infringe patent laws?

Note to non-Brits: "Asians" are "south asians", i.e. people from India etc., hence the arabic/urdu/hindi/whatever character on the YFC logo.

It's a pretty good idea. They could have made it LFC for Leeds...
