Apologies for the quality of the translation but you get the gist.....

There is no controversy MG Rover intellectual property rights would be regarded Southern Steam

http://news.sohu.com/20070418/n249507583.shtml 18 April 2007


March 30, Shanghai published the article entitled "Informed sources said SAIC is Rover is the main intellectual property," the article in the industry caused high degree of concern. This article chose SAIC Rong-wei has listed four months and poor sales period, the upcoming Shanghai International Automobile Exhibition opened Sensational new name MG March 27th occasion of the successful Team published that should not have thought that bringing these issues, This reporter recently interviewed a South senior FAW Group.


Faced with a rational treatment questioned

South FAW Group Ltd., vice minister of international affairs Ding Song in an interview with reporters, repeatedly stressed that First, only saying that they (South FAW) is not to say that others, followed by only has the objective facts, not speculate on other, evaluation. Minister Ding also emphasized the south between FAW and SAIC brothers manufacturers, such as South steam, SAIC cooperated with the Tung Wah Group of companies and the Southern Steam Automobile 25% each, Taikexi 50% of the shares of Huadong Taikexi Iron Company Limited.


We have all the assets

On MGR intellectual property rights, Minister Ding said such a group of data : "We have MG Rover 102 global patents registered trademarks involving 35 major categories and 97 countries and regions, 679 granted the right to permit life, in other words, South steam through legitimate international legal acts from the original MG Rover a receiver -- bought PricewaterhouseCoopers hands of the whole MGR Department of assets. "At this point, Special Minister Ding explained by international law refers to all the assets in addition to tangible assets MGR all existing production equipment, Process manufacturing platform, research and development institutions, including the inventory of finished car accessories, is the most crucial intangible assets also include the MG Rover means all intellectual property, who owns the intellectual property, will have patented technology, who owns the assets will have the right to use the patent. South steam to purchase the assets rather than business, and SAIC acquired only a small part of the scope of the use of SAIC, As the south side, the acquisition of assets in the future enjoy the intellectual property rights to South steam to the long-term interests!

"MG Rover is the company's brand-operation, MG is a brand name of Lord and the other is the Rover brand, But both belong to a technology platform. In fact, MGR our intellectual property position is very clear. We checked the second half of 2004, signed by the transfer of intellectual property rights agreements and the law firm Eversheds MGR intellectual property summary and evaluation. We know, MGR transfer to others only a very small part of the exclusive technology, Most common techniques are permitted others to use. Now South steam successful acquisition of MGR's assets, South steam is permitted to use the intellectual property of others the true owner. "


History will restore true colors

Intellectual property issues, SAIC harvest only a few models of a small part of it, Southern Steam is MGR all assets of the owners, will be the ultimate winner interests.

Reporters on the end of the interview, the Minister Ding emphasized again that if this is not the Shanghai newspaper's report Southern Steam is not what he wanted to, but in accordance with the law of the market operation rules, "Silence is not necessarily gold. Silence may be others that of the default. "In the face of an voices of doubt have arisen. South steam can also choose just to clarify some of the facts, there is no other meaning, long time, it involves, History will take an objective approach to the reduction of the true facts.

This reporter how well Editor's note : It has now, The so-called Shanghai newspaper said, "SAIC is MG Rover IP is the main" article discussing the two disputes simply does not exist , because both practices under international law or domestic law, SAIC perhaps only in the media "speculation" about the concept, the law simply could find no facts to help set up the grounds, and SAIC if repeated again and again to do so, Steam then South can through the proper legal channels to protect their legitimate interests.

From another perspective, chosen this time to write such an article is not because Rong-wei listed for a quarter year, the sales are not satisfactory?

SAIC is the fear of the Lord MG were strong competitive edge?

The answers already exist Needless to say!

From the above it looks VERY bad for SAIC. As Eversheds who a highly respected law firm have come down firmly on Nanjing side on the IPR issue.

It also seems that SAIC are very restricted in how they use the IPR's they own. Looks like a major embarrasment for China's biggest car maker. Now where's I_real_hate_china when you need him?

Also where are the law firms that are backing SAIC's view? No law firm seems to be backing their views. But the law firms seem to back Nanjing. Plus Pricewaterhouse Coopers sold IPR's to all the models and they are a bunch of Lawyers and Accountants who could have their license to operate removed if they knowingly lied!

SAIC are so wrong it's embarrasing!

That's what Nanjing claims. Nowherein the article do I read any laywer mentioned.

Go to British patent office, and ask tem who owns the list of specific IPs. British office will reply you, SAIC.

So presumably Evershed's are liars then? Are you saying that a law firm purposefully gave bad advice? You know they could get sued by Nanjing if that's true don't you?
