 |  May 04 2012, 5:32 PM

Stealing doesn’t seem to bother Chinese automaker JAC. It makes cheap knockoff vehicles that look like blatant ripoffs of the legitimate cars, and because of an indifferent Chinese government, there hasn’t been much available recourse for the violated automakers.

In an almost Rambo-like fit of rage, Ford threatened JAC over its recent F-150 look-a-like. Ford Inside News reports that the automaker managed to freeze the company in its tracks, something no other company has managed to date. Apparently a slew of Chinese patents actually protects the brand’s products in China, meaning that the Chinese government’s standard refusal to recognize foreign patents won’t serve as a block-all shield after all.

    it is okay in the Chinese society to copy or steal anything you can from another person – nothing like the intellectual property laws like we have in the free world.

  • Fatcat1

    And the Ford Flex is not a Range Rover rip off. Come on its a compliment to be copied, the cream will always float to the top.

  • Ryanlahey

    Hell, they all look about the same anyway …what’s the difference? I can see a problem if even the emblem said Ford, but nowadays they are all copy-cats. Even half the Ford trucks have Japanese parts and motors already. Let’s also not forget that Ford murdered thousands of people when they were caught redhanded putting faulty tires on SUV’s because (documented) it was cheaper to pay off the dead’s families than to change production on the tires. Fuck Ford
