Well, at least the Range Rover won this battle.
The Landwind X7 came in news after Jaguar Land Rover filed a
copyright infringement case against the chinese automobile
manufacturer.But the chinese court declared both company’s (JLR and
Jiangling) patents as invalid.
Chinese law pretty much always sides with Chinese business where there’s money to be made .
Landwind is a Chinese car maker jointly owned by Jiangling Motors and
Changan Auto, coincidentally both joint venture are partners of Ford
Ford and Changan- Ford respectively.
Ford owned Land Rover until 2008 when they sold it on to the TATA conglomerate of India.
