    JLR wins court case against copycat

    "As a result of its piracy, Jiangling must withdraw all LandWind X7s from the market and pay compensation to JLR. Keith Benjamin, JLR’s Global Legal Director, commented on the outcome, stating, “we welcome this decision of the Beijing court, which further strengthens our confidence in investing in China."

    Wow! Nice win for JLR with current sales situation in China and new Evoque coming out.

    But will it get enforced outside the court room I wonder.... The Chinese legal system is very different to ours.

    The LandWind looks very similar to a RR (see photos in Wikipedia), especially the Land Wind example shown carrying Range Rover lettering.

    A Range Rover lookalike at a 2/3 discount - no wonder they were popular

    Still, the Beijing court decision is somewhat surprising.

    It’s only to placate JLR who want to move some production and manufacturing there, so they’re looking at the bigger picture. Still not sure much will actually happen though, but we’ll see.

    Is it too late for Simca to take LandRover to court for stealing the 1977 Matra Rancho design for the D1
