Brexit - Japan: Toyota eyes legal action against Brexit camp's use of its logo

Toyota Motor Corp. said Thursday it is considering legal action against the official campaign for Britain to leave the European Union for using its logo in the group's leaflets in a move implying the Japanese automaker backs Brexit.

Toyota said in a statement that the use of the Toyota logo in Vote Leave campaign flyers ahead of the June 23 referendum "could mislead the reader into thinking that Toyota endorses the Vote Leave campaign."
