As described on Wikipedia:
“An automobile powered by his own four-stroke cycle gasoline engine was built in Mannheim, Germany by Karl Benz in 1885, and granted a patent in January of the following year under the auspices of his major company, Benz & Cie., which was founded in 1883. It was an integral design, without the adaptation of other existing components, and included several new technological elements to create a new concept. He began to sell his production vehicles in 1888.”
There have been almost an uncountable number of motor vehicles built around the world since the day Benz received his patent in 1886. Certainly the number would be in the many multi-millions.
Every modern car, while they have different stylings and technologies included, are intrinsically all the same.
Engine. Wheels. Seats. Steering wheel. Brakes.
Look at ANY car and you’ll see all of those features.
Nobody is winning. One side gets a ruling, the other side appeals. That side wins the appeal, and then the other side appeals again. Each side gets banned from selling various products.
Products that people want to buy, while the pettiness of these companies stops exactly this from happening.
