At the court

Back in the past, the Landwind X7 was infamous in the news after Jaguar Land Rover filed a patent infringement lawsuit against the Chinese automaker. However, the Chinese court rejected both the patents of the two companies (Jiangling and JLR).

Well, it seems that Chinese law and Chinese enterprises are allies where there is under-the-table money.
