Nikolai Borg is suing VW for failing to acknowledge that he designed the company's logo for the Nazis on the eve of the Second World War. VW denies the man's claims stating that the logo was submitted to Nazi Germany's patent office one year earlier in 1938. Apparently the original VW logo featured the famous V above a W surrounded by a cog, but after the war Britain changed the cog to a circle because of the logo's link to an official Nazi symbol that featured a swastika surrounded by a cog. Borg wants no money, but is rather suing for a joint press statement acknowledging that he is the original author of the logo's design.
