Tatra Lawsuit

This bugs me



Politicians and their wine cellars

Volkswagen was sued by Czechoslovakian car maker Tatra before WW II because the original Beetle was so similar to the Tatra T97. When Czechoslovakia was invaded by the Nazis, the production of the T97 was immediately halted, and the lawsuit dropped.

After the war, Tatra reopened the lawsuit against Volkswagen. In 1965, the matter was settled when Volkswagen paid Tatra 1,000,000 Deutsche Mark in compensation.
