Re: Ford suing Ferrari over F-150 name

Trademarks are trademarks. Don't hate the company for protecting their business under our current laws. (Don't hate the player, hate the game)

If Ford doesn't go after this in the courts then that sets precedent for anyone to go after the F150 name, cause they let Ferrari do it.

Re: Ford suing Ferrari over F-150 name

that's true, but it's not the first time that 2 car companies had cars with the same name. i think the outcome will be interesting to say the least. ferrari may call it the ferrari 150, the formula 150...and at the end of the day ppl will still call it the f-150, even if it's not "marketed" as such...

Re: Ford suing Ferrari over F-150 name

That's what you get for naming your automobile a letter and numbers. I don't know if it'll stand as trademarkable. I guess we'll see.

Like I said, the Federal government cares. The law states you have to protect your trademark. Ford lets it go then they lose their trademark.

I understand that however lawyers cost money and perhaps they could have just talked about it before it became a news story. I personally don't care. If ford wants to sue have at er
