???hmm how about toyota copying chyrslers minivan?
Well, everybody else making minivan is fine, replicating somebody else's design is not.i thought chyrsler was the one who invented the minivan, now everyone started making the minivan.
Too bad that arguement wouldn't hold in non-Chinese courts.ok now who is the one who started making the first double story bus? wait no now theres alot of double story buses. ok, so now who was the one who decided to make a shuttle bus all rectangular? now everyone is making shuttle bus rectanguar. now that the germands decided to cut a corner off the bus, sooner or latter everyone is going to do this. its just that the chinese would the be first one to do it, and suffer all the pain of people saying that they are copying.
Nanjing too is an auto pirate; Rover 25, Rover 75, and K-series engine, cough cough.They should all learn from Nanjing who seem to be the most 'proper' company of the lot.

Only three Chinese brand companies are playing by international standards.
SAIC : Aside from the Roewe brand(which is technically not illegal, because it does sound different and badge design is also significantly different from Rover's), SAIC is pretty clean on IP issues.
Geely : You can laugh at Geely all you want, but at least Geely designs are not straight replicas like its competitors; Geely does its own derivative work on old Daewoo chassises and pays for them.
Brilliance Zhonghua : While their designs resemble BMWs, the chassis and styling are their own and 100% legal. This is the role model that other Chinese companies should look up to.
Chinese must understand the difference between "Being Inspired By" and "A Straight Replica"; the former is legal by international law; the latter one is not.
So Nanjing paid 53 millions for all those assets from MG-Rover still makes them a pirate? How does that work?Real_I_Hate_China said:Nanjing too is an auto pirate; Rover 25, Rover 75, and K-series engine, cough cough.
Nanjing didn't pay for Rover25, 75, and K-series IP. The administrators could not sell what they didn't own.So Nanjing paid 53 millions for all those assets from MG-Rover still makes them a pirate?
When you build cars whose IP you don't own.How does that work?
ZS is out of question since this is really Honda Civic.Nanjing can base their cars on the MG ZR, ZS and the ZT
I was going to agree with you (a first) until this post.Real_I_Hate_China said:Nanjing too is an auto pirate; Rover 25, Rover 75, and K-series engine, cough cough.
Well, SAIC only has the IP of 25 and the 75, but not the ZR and the ZT, therefore Nanjing can still build those MG cars and not violating IP laws.Real_I_Hate_China said:Nanjing didn't pay for Rover25, 75, and K-series IP. The administrators could not sell what they didn't own.

Honda would have talked to Nanjing about this, would they?ZS is out of question since this is really Honda Civic.
Well... that could be true. Who knows.Why SAIC isn't sueing.
- SAIC did threaten to sue, but Nanjing went to Chinese community party for a "mediation" and Chinese communist party's order silenced SAIC.
- But Nanjing is still an automotive pirate under the international practive; it is Chinese communist party that is preventing an all out lawsuit war.
Yes they can GM won a similar case over the Cherry QQ. In addition I can't see the EU accepting this much longer. All they have to do is start banning the import of Chinese clothes until these issues are resolved and I think you will see China stamp down pretty quickly. The combined EU economy is the worlds largest with a turnover of 6 trillion dollars a day!KING_OF_HILL said:Maybe they just twins ... :lol:
Trust me, they can't do a thing about this in chinese court

Does the name Zonda have any meaning in Chinese? or are they still desperate for car names?
