How are special characters handled in an oData query?

How is the & symbol handled in the following query in oData?

/vendordataservice.svc/vDataMapper_SourceMapVendor?&$filter=startswith(ParentName,'AT&T')&$top=7&$skip=0

I’m using EF3.5 and SQL2008. When I send that to my oData service I get no data back.
