GM wins first round in Hummer grille design fight with Jeep

A U.S. federal court has refused to stop the use of the HUMMER grille design on the upcoming H2 model. DaimlerChrysler had maintained that the 7-slot grille conflicted with a Jeep grille trademark.

DaimlerChrysler Corporation said they are reviewing the court’s decision and have not yet determined whether to file an appeal. DaimlerChrysler will present its complete case at the December hearing when a full trial will be held.
