Dear Ford enthusiast,
As many of you are already aware Ford Motor Company, through the
Howard,Phillips and Andersen, has recently initiated an effort to crack
down on trademark infringement of Ford and their brand names. While we
support the efforts to uphold Ford's trademarks and take action against
those who use them negatively, many legitimate businesses, clubs,
enthusiast websites have been sent letters asking them to not only
discontinue use of the name, but to also pay exorbitant damages and
turn-over their URLs and other business property. For many companies,
which have been in business since the Ford Mustang was introduced in
60's, this could essentially mean going out of business.
FordMuscle Magazine is championing a cause to make Ford aware that
broadly-sweeping and harsh legal efforts against companies which
and have helped build the loyaly around Ford and Ford vehicles, are
ultimately damaging theirPR and Marketing efforts.
As loyal Ford fans and customers of these legitimate businesses we ask
that you help our efforts to ask Ford Motor Company for a more fair and
equitable solution to meet their needs and keep the companies in
Please visit the following page on FordMuscle.com and submit your
comments. All well-written and non-malicious comments will be sent to
several key contacts within Ford Motor Company.
Thanks for your support.
