Six years ago, a young man named Sammy Wasem decided to start a fan page to display his love for Ferrari. Little did he know that the page would become one of the most popular car sites on Facebook, and that he would be facing a legal battle with the luxury car brand.
In March 2009, Ferarri sent a congratulatory email to Wasem for gaining more than 500,000 fans
within a year of creating the fan page. They also mentioned that they would be taking over the formal administration of the
fan page because of legal issues.
Wasem agreed to make the site the official fan page for Ferrari in return of financial compensation to help fund his budding racing career. This continued for four years. Wasem claims his role was eventually replaced by other managers, before he subsequently lost all administration rights to the page.
In February 2013, Wasem filed a civil lawsuit claiming compensation for at least 10 million Swiss francs ($11 million) for more than 5,500 hours of work. It will be a challenging case, given that the terms which were agreed on were not written down in an official contract.

The majority of incidents on the road could have been prevented by one or more drivers. Just look at the case of the self driving car crash. An investigation found that the driver had seven seconds to intervene before the car collided with a wall. He just wasn’t paying attention and that’s only one of the most common errors that occurs on the road. Read more
