I would like your opinions on this:

>Kellogg's company suddenly closed in my country a year ago
>You_all_fired.exe
>Government seized the company because
>They running the plant and producing brands like Corn Flakes without consent of Kellogg's
>Kellogg's mad & nobody cares
>Extra points: Printing mild pro-socialist political proganda on the same box with Kellogg's mascots.

Are getting away with it?
It seems so

I'm guessing this country does not have normal diplomatic or trade relations with most of the first world -- because if they did, Kellogg's would cause a WTO complaint to be filed and eventual sanctions.

They may not be "getting away with it" if Kellogg is gearing up to take legal action against them, which they are in the right to do so.

Such things aren't uncommon in moments of political tension. It mostly amounts to an outstanding lawsuit that gets dropped when relations stabilize and an unusual experience to share for the people who lived through it.

Copying the branding is a little more unusual since it makes export complicated but I've still heard similar stories. Pardon me if I don't know the specifics.

It seems Kellogg is already trying to.

However, the crazy thing is that it will probably be fruitless...

I am afraid once the relations get back to normal Kellogg will demand a lot of money because of the damages anyways...

Kellogg might demand damages, but that might be less costly to the company to pay Kellogg the damages rather than completely cease production and sale of cereal for however long it takes to re-negotiate.
