Ford seizes domain name of reputable Lancashire company Newfordcarparts.co.uk

by | 30th, May 2013

NEWFORD Parts Centre, Abbey Village, Lancashire, sells car parts. Ford was unhappy that the company was listed on the internet as Newfordcarparts.co.uk. So. Ford sued. And won. Ford motors says Newford Parts Centre  was “trading off its fame, history and reputation to boost its own business”. The company had been trading on that web address for 14 years online, and 40 years offline.

Images from the offending website looks like this:
