They aren't suing because of the product. They are suing because of the packaging and colors are misleading. So Ford should sue GM because Ford designed the car before GM and it had 4 wheels on it? How about Boeing suing Airbus because the A-340 has a long fuselage, 2 wings and a tail just as Boeing does…
