GM doesn't own rights on the H1. But AM General should definitely sue.

. . . you said it, "under license". GM had the rights of distribution which expired when AMG stopped making the civilian version of the Humvee, known as the H1.

But in any case this is another blatant infringement of American intellectual rights by China.

I've seen this one before, it's made by Dongfeng.
The sad thing is that in China no one cares.
Luckily, consumers still go for the real thing
when they can afford it.

The whole concept is abhorrent for civilian use. So of course it became somehow popular. In any case violation of intellectual property should be fought.
