Folkswagon throughout its lifespan, has had difficulty with both its tradename, Folkswagon, and its official name, Folkswagone, due to its similarity in both sound, and meaning, with German automobile manufacturing Volkswagen. While the logo, and products differ, they are often confused which has led to several attempts at litigation by Volkswagen, which have proved unsuccessful.
