How much law goes into making a car


After Karl Benz built his first automobile in 1885 in Mannheim, millions of other cars have been built.
What may surprise an average car user is that apart from the engineering that goes into building a car, a lot of law also goes into it as well and below are just a few - 

1. Intellectual Property Law
Under IP laws, we have Trademarks & Patents, while the name of the Car is trademarked e.g. Toyota, Mercedes and Maybach. Some of the engineering features on the car would definitely be patented as well. 

2. Contracts & Agreements
In building a car, there are quite a number of components that are brought together to achieve the perfect automobile. Some of these contracts will includue employment agreements, partnership agreements, sales agreements & also distribution agreements. 

3. Government Regulations
In building a car, Manufacturers must ensure compliance with any and all relevant laws relevant to manufacturing a car. Government regulations in the automotive industry directly affects the way cars look, how their components are designed, the safety features that are included, and the overall performance of any given vehicle.
