You cannot photograph your car!?
Saw this on a prominent mailing list. So hoping that the information is correct.
Ford: Car owners are pirates if they distribute pictures of their own cars - Boing Boing
Already, consumer activists in developed countries are complaining that auto cos are infringing on their (customers') rights to use, repair and modify their cars as they like. I am wondering where we are headed to after this.

I presume that Ford gets a little nervous about how their product is presented to the public and that what they are really worried about is how a calendar company makes their vehicles look. Ford wants control. They may also want a few rupees. I doubt Ford is aiming this at private owners and their pictures. It's a commercial thing. Also, in North America it might be a "porn" thing especially with calendars of sexy girls draped all over sexy cars.
Having said that, with Ford sales down you would think that maybe they would be happy to have their pictures out there as much as possible.
