Auto Makers Forced To Unbundle Stereo from Vehicles

@ 2005/01/04
The antitrust suit filed by Sony against the automakers claimed the manufacturers use their monopoly in the automobile market to lock out third-party suppliers of car stereos. The suit also claimed that automakers engineered their cars to make use of alternate stereos difficult or impractical. The sole reason for this is to prevent users from switching to an aftermarket stereo.

From A to Z brands - Auto makers all over the world act the same. Auto makers are heavily into "shadow management".
