    They could win if they wanted to fight it... But do they have the money to fight it...

    No, they could not! As long as you do not use it in a commercial manner, if you don't market them or build them. As long as you have it for your own private use you can do whatever you want. You can paint an artwork...and sign it Picasso. NO problem. The problem starts the moment you sell it pretending it is a real Picasso. Same with the car. You can take your red Ford Probe and put Ferrari badges all over it. No problem. You can buy a kit (the person that sells it is the one that might get a problem) and put badges on it...no problem. The problem starts when you want to sell it...

    Another article, another picture .. they seem so proud that they busted this ring -- like they were hiding or something. This is an industry that believe they were above board, nobody was hiding. Somebody must not have been liked somewhere.

    Yeah. Thats what I was thinking.. I would assume they were already parked in the buyers garages and they came and confiscated thier cars and took them out of thier garages and towed them away..

    Here in the US it would likely only happen if you were trying to sell as the real thing. Here in Charleston the FBI busted a group selling fake rolex and other brand name watches. If they had been selling "replica" watches they would not have gotten arrested. That does not mean rolex could not sue them in civil court but rules are all together different between civil and criminal courts.
