Just found another name theft, this one is a French made luxury launch, the design of which is named Maori (NZ indigenous people) and to add to this the boats' name is Matariki (the Maori new year (who would call a fancy boat Maori new year?!). Nothing to do with France at all, just using our countries' titles and image to make money. The Americans have done that with their indigenous people, (planes, helicopters, boats etc, ) but at least it's within their own country, and possibly with the blessing of the tribes concerned?
There is also one of the worlds fastest cars, - the Tuatara (Shelby USA) which is named after a prehistoric marine Iguana (only found in NZ and having a Maori name) It's becoming quite prevalent now and is starting to infringe on NZ trademarks. May not seem much, but would you want your family name associated with say, a toilet brush or a brand of dog food in another country. South America has also had it's share of name pilfering as well, -Inca, Aztec (plane) etc.
The Chinese are really good at it, and even blatantly modifying trademarks to look like a well known product form elsewhere. It's probably not stoppable, but if something turns out to be a dog, people might associate it with the country the name comes from. BTW the guy in the video hasn't got the decency to pronounce Maori correctly, - it's not Mayory, more like Mauori
As you will notice from their history blurb, no mention of NZ anywhere.
