    There's nothing like a phone call - or better yet a physical letter sent via the US Postal Service - to get the notice of another entity, be it government or corporate.

    This isn't anything new and the Manufactures have won in most cases.

    It's a strong arm from the attorney's to get their attention. He needs to call and talk to them. He may want to ask for time to get a new domain registered and even time to redirect members.

    If you use a trade name, expect and be prepared to have to stop, not matter how long it's been. The way he worded it, it makes sense. I can't see how he thinks the Texas Ranger or Park Rangers has anything to do with using the name "Ranger" in relation to a Ford Ranger site. A name Ford owns.

    Also, he needs to make sure it's Ford Motor Co. and not the guy that's buying up all the enthusiasts sites using creating wording. I doubt it, but you never know.

    If it is FoMoCo, they have a reason to want to stop the name from being used. It's theirs so they have that right.

    Well now, we usually know there's more to the story....

    Sounds like Ford is also being very easy to work with on the subject.

    Oh, well, I no longer own Ford vehicles. Used to have a Ford Ranger, the local Ford Garage screwed up the engine rebuild so bad I had to get rid of it. Never ran right since the garage touched it. And they're supposed to be certified Ford Factory Mechanics. BS.
