While the Chinese copy everything from Cadillac Escalades and BMW X5s to Volkswagen engines and gearboxes, an Aussie went for a nameplate...and paid for it. American motorhome manufacturer Winnebago won a court decision in Australia against Knott Investments, which trademarked the name Winnebago in Australia in 1997. The judge ordered the trademark registration canceled, noting Knott founder Bruce Binns "intentionally hijacked" the name and logos to prevent Winnebago from opening in Australia, finding Binns' contention that he "did not want to associate it with that particular business" as not credible.
