    JLR don't seem to have any issues with a Chinese company copying the Evoque. Do a search for the LANDWING.

    It would appear JLR want to keep their business profits for their share holders and keep their own workers employed in these very difficult times that lie ahead.


    Mefinks they may have retained a ‘learned’ friend from up here in Bonnie Scotland.
    Only last week some incompetent clown dug deep into our nations bottomless DEBT filled IOU pockets to the tune of a £20m settlement.
    Our humiliated top laddie was forced by the 2 defendants’ smarter team to make a public appology to a stunned nation in our very own little talking shop.

    I await the ‘Lessons to be Learned’ outcome from the inevitable ‘independent’ enquiry.


    As for that far east Land Rover copy
    (Don’t we ‘donate’ £70m annually to them from our empty pockets?
    I liked the Morris Oxford copy

    In for a penny in for a £ or two
    ( Thank goodness we have that generous quantative easing carryon to lesson any short term pain)


    I see our future as TAX TAX and carbon TAX to keep this show on the road.

    Anyone know how to get a moped engine to look, sound and go like a big block ?

    I thought they won that case?

    I was wondering if your sister business had had any 'cease and desist' letters on headed paper?

    Another little update for anyone interested.
    This is the rebuttal from the Swedish pensioners, with links to official documents, disputing the hastily put together press release from Mr Pink at JLR.....

    He said she said but I tend to believe the Magnussons as they’ve provided the counter evidence. Sounds like they sowed a seed with JLR who then decided on a continuation model themselves and wouldn’t have appreciated a much cheaper rival!

    I think as above, to stop anyone else from selling them. But once the lawyers are involved and run up a bill to achieve this. They are passing the bill onto the Magnussons?

    Strange how they cannot see the benifit of replicas. The cobra replica business has enhanced the value and enthusiasm of the original cars . I think Shelby saw this and changed his outlook with endorsements for some manufacturers.
    What has a law sue against a minnow company do for a companies reputation? Very little benifit and more harm. The big corporations trying to bully a small company..
    JLR should have a rethink in there approach.

    Indeed - you will also see mention in the link that there us a suggestion that parts suppliers to JLR Classic should boycott them, as they are likely to loose a slice of business if the Jaguar replica market is no more.

    I suspect its a case of lawyers and accountants ruling the roost - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing.
