4G Globe Tattoo Tonino Lamborghini Broadband Stick Is a fake according to this news report by Marketwire. Wow. Didn’t see this coming…Epic FAIL.

UPDATE: It looks like Globe did have a deal with another yet similar Lamborghini Brand, Automobili Lamborghini, yet used Tonino Lamborghini in collaterals. Still worthy of an epic corporate :facepalm: in my opinion.
BOLOGNA, ITALY–(Marketwire – Aug. 23, 2011) – Tonino Lamborghini s.r.l., an Italy-based company which is the sole lawful owner worldwide of the trademark “Tonino Lamborghini” hereunder wishes to inform its customers that unauthorized people are currently trading online and through Globe stores a “4G Tatto Tonino Lamborghini” broadband stick which is a counterfeited product.
Tonino Lamborghini s.r.l. has never manufactured or authorized anyone to manufacture such a product which constitutes therefore a serious trademark infringement.
Moreover the advertising campaign “Feed your need for speed” featuring Marlon Stockinger, first Filipino to win a formula race in Europe, is deceitful and unlawful since it leads to a serious likelihood of confusion between two different and separate brands and businesses that is to say “Tonino Lamborghini” and “Automobili Lamborghini”.
Tonino Lamborghini s.r.l. shall take any legal action to protect the brand.
