Wolksvagen

volkswagen_online_mapsLooking for an address on online maps can lead to interesting things. New cases for your firm even.

How about this beauty: a “Volkswagen service” auto shop.

Of course they are free to mention that they repair Volkswagen vehicles. But using the VW logo is normally not permitted.

Hey wait, that’s not the VW-logo! It looks like it, but it’s upside down! And in the sign hanging form the shop, there is a yellow ‘R’. Maybe to indicate that the logo is a registered trademark?

Strange. VWery strange.
