Intersting Fact


When I was searching for the same , I stumbled upon the interesting discovery that Nissan.com is not owned by Nissan motors and the funnier part is if you want you can get email ID in 'your name'@nissan.com. On searching more in the same site , I came across this interesting article

Nissan vs. Nissan

Nissan Motor Sued Nissan Computer For Trademark Infringement,
Trademark Dilution And Cyber-Squatting
Seeking 10 Million Dollars In Damages

By Uzi Nissan - founder and president, Nissan Computer Corp.

BACKGROUND
My name is Uzi Nissan. I was born in Jerusalem - Israel. My father's last name was Nissan, his father's last name was Nissan, and so on. Nissan is a biblical term identifying the seventh month in the Hebrew calendar. The term Nissan also is Arabic for the month of April.

I came to the US in 1976, and have used my surname for years to identify a number of business enterprises. The first was "Nissan Foreign Car" in 1980. When I operated this business, I serviced different makes and models of foreign cars, including cars manufactured by Nissan Motor, back then known as "DATSUN". Contrary to the allegations by Nissan Motor, I did not choose to use my last name "Nissan" for my business in 1980 because of their name. At that time, they and their automobiles were known as "DATSUN" and were not known as "Nissan".


In December 1987, I started an import/export business known as "Nissan International" At that time, Nissan Motor was not well known as Nissan, but primarily as "DATSUN". As with the earlier business, I chose to use Nissan in my business name because it was my last name.


On May 14, 1991, "Nissan Computer Corp" was incorporated in the state of North Carolina. I was then, and still am, the company President. I have used Nissan as part of my trade name in connection with the sale of computer hardware, computer maintenance, networking, computer training and other consulting services related to computers. On June 4, 1994, I registered the domain name "nissan.com" and created a web site to promote computer related products and services on the Internet.

In July of 1995, I obtained a service mark registration for Nissan and my logo from the State of North Carolina.


On March 17, 1996, I registered the domain name "nissan.net" , and began offering Internet services, including dial-up connections and direct data connections to business.

In another example of Nissan Motor's flexing its corporate might, age old eminent domain laws have been rewritten in Mississippi allowing the State to take land and homes from local landowners for the sole private benefit of Nissan Motor. How the State of Mississippi was "convinced" to change these laws is unclear, but it is clear that local individuals are being deprived of their property rights so Nissan Motor can build its own plant.

Voted for Mercedes-Benz.
It has right mix of contents, class and information. Just what you expect from a premium car brand. Easy to navigate too.

The second is a runner up, Ford and Honda. Both of them lose as they are trying to excessive enthusiasm and excitement.
Toyota is also good, but not the best.

Audi gave me a lot of issues, not the best to navigate. Sort of ego is visible in website, but then its my opinion.

Max, buddy I feel the thread title should be changed as it speaks about official websites of automakers.
