    The comments show a conflict on whether or not the feds should have been involved.

    I say burn 'em. Competition is good for industry, but copying a patent is wrong too.

    Then again, big-company patent scopes are getting rather broad...

    I find it odd that the U.S. Marshall Service served warrants for counterfeit goods. These type of investigations are normally done by Homeland Security Special Agents

    I thought Marshalls are usually the guys that serve warrants? DHS may be investigating but Im pretty sure it's normal for a Marshall to be involved in that capacity.

    That's all that you took from that article? Not the fact a Chinese company was blatantly stealing from an American company at one of the largest automotive shows. Wow

    ^^Huh? Warrants for counterfeit goods?

    This was a civil complaint and it is not strange to have a Marshall serve the summons/complaint and the court order, particularly when the temporary restraining order includes taking possession of property.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
