SearchScript API fails having "&" as part of the script name

Using the firstock_SearchScrips(“M&M”), returns with ‘Invalid Input : jData is not valid json object’

This error is consistent with other script like L&TFH, where & character is part of the name.

Is there a fix available ?

This solution is acceptable if using an Http URL request.
Using a Python function, such encoding should be taken care within API function, than expecting developer to encode names.

Please modify the python funtion to accept plain names without using encoding
