The Korean court forbade supply of components for TagAZ Vega

The court of the Central district of Seoul declared on the 27th of October that TagAZ Korea, the "daughter" of the Russian auto manufacturer TagAZ, used the drawings of the model Chevrolet Lacetti stolen at the local division of GM DAT to develop its own car which since June has been on sale in Russia under the brand TagAZ Vega. The Taganrog car plant produces these cars from the Korean car kits which supply can stop in connection with the court injunction if the court decision is not challenged.
Meanwhile, TagAZ already stopped manufacture of Vega sedans in October as there are no car kits because of the delay with customs clearance. The Russian dealers of TagAZ continue sales of cars of the new model, now in the dealer network there are about 200 cars. However dealers say that there is almost no demand for TagAZ Vega, especially because of the fact that supplies of components for them can stop.
TagAZ always rejected charges in the theft of somebody else"s intellectual property, asserting, that this car was developed by its engineering division TagAZ Korea independently. However experts say that it is impossible to develop the car from the ground up for three years and spent on it only 250 million dollars. In their opinion, TagAZ, of course, can agree with GM DAT, but it will be burdensome enough for the company: it is necessary to pay for the licence (the sum can constitute up to 200 million dollars) plus to pay a royalty from sold cars. In this case the prices for Vega will be not so attractive, experts conclude.
