Pictures of Ford's are proprietary…even after you buy it!

In a post from Boing-Boing:

pictures of Ford cars cannot be printed. Not just Ford logos, not just Mustang logos, the car -as a whole- is a Ford trademark and its image can’t be reproduced without permission. So even though Ford has a lineup of enthusiasts who want to show off their Ford cars, the company is bent on alienating them.

Wow – this seems crazy to me, but then I think…do newspapers and broadcast stations do the  same thing?  Or at least similar.  Why wouldn’t we want people to take the content and push it out to more people.  Wouldn’t that build more audience, trust and community for product as a whole?
