    Jaguar Land Rover has won a landmark legal case in China that will force an automaker there to stop selling a knockoff of the British brand’s Range Rover Evoque SUV. The decision marks the first time a court has ruled in favor of a foreign automaker in such a case.

    Chinese automakers are often accused of stealing designs from European and American automakers, including Ford and General Motors, but the legal system has traditionally been week on protecting the intellectual property of foreign companies.

    The Chinese are experts at reverse engineering. It is bad in every sector, but I see it first hand in the heavy equipment world. Happy to see there is at least a glimmer of some type of accountability.

    Back in 2012, Ford succeeded in stopping this F150 copy, the JAC 4R3

    This news is good, sad, and funny all rolled into one for their own reasons.

    With all of the quality issues I hear about the Rang Rover, maybe Land Rover should just sell the Chinese knock off to improve quality.
