In a move that is hard to understand, Ford has sued a club of car enthusiasts to prevent them using photographs they took of their own Ford cars, for calendar purposes.
See: http://www.adrants.com/2008/01/ford-slaps-brand-enthusiasts-returns.php for more details.
Now arguably the design of Ford cars is copyright under the architecture extensions. Arguably the designs are trademarks. Arguably Ford are well within their rights, but why?
The calendar cannot possibly have a negative impact on Ford car sales.
I think WIPO should address copyright globally to prevent this type of abuse.
