Ford Asks Court For Injuction Against Ferrari Over F-150 Naming Rights


Nobody in their right mind could ever confuse the Ford F-150 pickup truck with the Ferrari F150 Formula 1 car. But Ford's lawyers seem to disagree, and have asked a U.S. court for an injunction against Ferrari and their use of the name.

Ferrari claims that the F150 moniker is intended to honor the 150th anniversary of Italy's unification. So far, neither side has commented but we'll be watching to see what unfolds.

If they let it go, the next time someone wants to use the moniker, it'll be free to go. They'd use this as an example and it could be used elsewhere.
