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.
