Newark, N.J. --- Ducati Motor Holding SpA, a manufacturer of high-performance motorcycles, faces a trademark infringement lawsuit filed by the widow of Mike Hailwood, a 10-time world motorcycle champion who died in 1981. The suit, filed by Pauline Hailwood, claims that Bologna, Italy-based Ducati has exploited her late husband's name and reputation without her permission to promote its motorcycles, particularly a handmade model known as the MH900e, or ''Mike Hailwood Evoluzione.''

Let it go to court. Anyone in thier right mind can see that Mike would approve of the MH900e. Pauline has no clue...

Why shouldn't she want cash? They are using her late husbands name to make a buttload of cash so I don't blame her.

Absolutely. My point was that whether or not Mike would have approved is probably not a consideration for her or, if it is, it is somewhere down the list after the cash (and after what she could spend the cash on).
