McDonald's may be ready to end the beef over teen's McFest charity concerts


Will Lauren McClusky, the Chicago teenager who raised the ire of McDonald's attorneys after she tried to copyright the charity concert name McFest, finally get to Have It Her Way

While it's too soon to tell, WalletPop has learned in an exclusive that high-level McDonald's officials reached out to McClusky on Friday to request a meeting to resolve the matter and move forward. Though on an ocean liner headed for Japan as part of the Semester at Sea program, McClusky has tentatively agreed to speak with McDonald's executives by video conference.

The McSummit could take place within the next two weeks -- and marks a huge break in the logjam between the fast-food giant and McClusky, whose McFest concerts have raised more than $30,000 for Special Olympics.
