If the name is copyrighted it's owned...it's why every car company in the world doesn't produce models called Mustang...or Shelby. His problem was making money off of creating a copy of an image and name owned by someone else; and currently in production by another company.

Im a subcriber to B is for build and Chris just loves the Eleanor design and was doing what his channel does best, build a car from a 15 GT just to see if he could do it.

If you saw the build as I did, the dedication and passion he has for cars and the Eleanor design especially that he was creating was a work of art.

I even wrote to the company who has the trademark and though legally they had every right they could have gone about it in a different way. Both Chris and the Eleanor company could have collaberated and than sold the car at auction and the proceeds to a favorite benefit

Unfortunately, once lawyers are involved and law suits filed it's usually too late for a better outcome.

Exactly, Chris put a ton of work on the 15 mustang and it was really cool to see the progress

Tons of custom work .... a shame
