You may not think so, however, according to the article there are legal decision precedents which indicate the blog owner can be forced to do so.

So if Toyo takes it to court, the decision would favor them.

Should they?

I can't say, other than it's clear other automakers have done so in similar situations.

Interestingly, the picture in the blog is a seriously older model, and I would bet one could find many examples of similar or worse rusting on every automaker's products of that vintage.

Correct.
That condition applied to all makes.
Hence the success at that time of entities like Ziebart.

See, I donít know if it would favor toy. So if I go outside and take a picture of my Silverado, and make a wall paper out of it for my computer that would be illegal. I donít really know how a judge could knock that if itís not being sold.

Iíll tell you one that really irritates me. The Chicago Times picked up one of my goofy thread titles and low and behold it became a title on one of their stories. On one hand I was humbled; on the other was anger because I feel that was my creation.
