Re: Ford Prevents Production of Chinese F-150 knockoff
i see nothing wrong with the Chinesse making an F-150. Its really no different then the pc world. I think we should turn autos into a commodity, were you simply buy on price and quality. I would have no problem purchasing a Chinese ford 150. I think we need to get rid of patients and copyrights.
Ford has a significant cache in the F-Series line of trucks. I think by allowing copycat companies like JAC to manufacture their own version of the F-150 it would not only comprimise the brand but also the image of quality and reliability that has been synonomous with the F-150 pick-up. I say way to go for Ford in proactively protecting their assets.
