Ford said it suffered irreparable harm to its F-150 trademark, and the Dearborn automaker's legal team asked a judge to block Ferrari from using the trademark in the United States. That includes importing, manufacturing or selling any product that uses the F-150 name.

Ford also wanted unspecified damages and for Ferrari to give up any revenue and profits earned in the U.S. through the use of the F-150 name, according to the lawsuit.

Ford also wanted $100,000 in damages pursuant to the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act, which protects against Internet domain names that confuse the public over the true source of products and services.

From The Detroit News:
irreparable harm? really?

Ford tends to deal in shady practices (I know from personal experience)..but that's just sad.
